Soccer Season Kicks Off

The Scripps Ranch Soccer Club’s (SRSC) recreational season begins Saturday, Sept. 9. There will be nearly 100 boys’ and girls’ teams playing soccer in Scripps Ranch through November. Our 27 competitive teams begin their Presidio League and San Diego Development Academy seasons that weekend as well.

Join us for Socctoberfest on Sunday, Oct. 1 at the Scripps Ranch Community Park from 9 am to 3 pm. We will have Picture Day and many activities including: bounce houses, a giant slide, bubble soccer, banner contest, and a whole lot more. We also will have food, beverage, and retail sale booths. Come join the fun!

With more than 1,300 youth playing on SRSC teams, it is a monumental task that could not be completed without our volunteer coaches, division representatives, team managers, and generous sponsors. The difference between “ordinary” and “extraordinary” is that little “extra” you all give to help our kids. Thank you!
