Earlier this year, Marin FC coach Eamon Kavanagh was invited by GOALS, Global Outreach and Love of Soccer, to coach soccer and teach English in Haiti. GOALS is a nonprofit that provides basic services and education to boys and girls in Haiti. Eamon will be there from July 15-21, 2014.
Coach Chris King and his Marin FC Girls 99 Red team tested the waters over Memorial Day weekend with a series of matches at the San Francisco Evolution Cup. Playing up a year, the girls went 1-2 for the weekend, but more than notching a win, they and their coach got a great sense of both player and team strengths and now have a clear development plan as they enter the summer season. Returning players Nikki Strack, Caroline Brockman, Skylar Vorhees and Caitlin Gregory all scored goals.
Marin FC players are cordially invited to attend a Two Rivers soccer camp this summer – to learn new skills, to enjoy the outdoors, to experience personal growth, and to make new friends.

Three Marin FC teams took Sate Cup honors this past weekend.
Our U15 boys beat Parajo Valley convincingly by the score of 9-1, after trailing 0-1 in the early going. Three goals in quick succession led to a 4-1 halftime lead, which quickly ballooned in the second half.
Hesler Deleon and Miguel Sanchez scored to give our U16 boys a two-goal lead en route to a 2-1 win against Evolution F.C. Santos of San Francisco.
