California COVID-19 Health Order Causes Postponement to June 2020

OCEANSIDE, CA (April 1, 2020) -Due to the State of California & County of San Diego COVID-19 Health Order, it has become increasingly unlikely that we will be able to hold the Beach Soccer Championship on the May 1-3, 2020 dates as originally planned. We are working closely with City of Oceanside officials along with our tourism and sponsorship partners and sanctioning bodies such as CalSouth Youth Soccer and Flag Football W.C.T. in hopes we will be able to hold the event sometime in mid to late June, 2020. Please continue to monitor our site for updated information. We hope to see you on the sand and please be safe during this incident.
