2012 was a ground breaking year for Carlsbad Wave FC, fielding a record 31 teams across boys and girls (15 boys, 16 girls). We had teams competing across all levels including Premier.
We also launched our U7 Developmental Program fielding 3 teams.
As a club that is based on quality and development over quantity, we are pleased to announce we had 5 League Champions this season. Congratulations to the following teams: BU8 Black, BU12 Black, BU16 Black, GU10 Black & GU13 Black. We also had two Runners Up and another 8 teams finishing in the top 4 of their Leagues. So half the entire club finished in the top 4!
Overall, we played 427 games last season, winning 191, drew 55, losing 180. We scored an impressive 755 goals, conceding 719 goals. So we won more than we lost and we scored more than we conceded. (Click here for full stats and standings)
As we continue to grow we are expecting 40 competitive teams for the 2013 season. We have recently added another full time member to our club, with the introduction of Brad Green becoming the Assistant DOC. Brad will be managing our recreational program whilst continuing to coach at the competitive level. He will heading up new programs with in club, such as Junior Wave and our own Competitive Spring League.
As the growth continues on field, off the field, the club is dedicated to making every players experience a positive one, by increasing the education of our coaches. This year all coaches will be fully qualified, professional coaches. Our very own DOC completed his NSCAA Advanced National Course last year to add to his UFFA B license. We also are sending over 10 coaches to NSCAA and USSF coaching clinics this year. We are pleased with the progress from 2012 and are very much striving to make 2013 even better, with more teams and better coaching, always putting our players first!
