TVSC to Host Referee Licensing Class – Updated Schedule!


The Tri Valley SC will be hosting a US Soccer Class 8 Referee School, August 14th - 16th 2015 at Marriott Courtyard Hotel in San Ramon. The class will be managed by TVSC Referee Coordinator Moe Shafai.


As our Club has grown, we need your help (parents)! We have a shortage of licensed referees and we need at least one parent from each of our competitive teams to register and complete this course! As a gesture of our appreciation, each parent that registers and completes the class will receive their Club volunteer fee back ($125.00). In addition, if you serve as referee or assistant referee for 10 games in the upcoming fall season, you will receive a $50.00 bonus on top of your compensation for officiating these games.


To reserve your spot, please contact Lou Arseneault at louise.arseneaulttvsc@gmail.com To register for the class directly, please go to this link: https://cnra.gameofficials.net/public/class/classRegister.cfm?classID=13106

Observations from the FIFA Women’s World Cup!
My world cup experience – Louise Arseneault


There is no doubt that attending one of the world’s greatest events was a dream come true. Everything from the crowd to the quality and level of play was something I will always remember. Throughout my visit at home I had the privilege of not only attending one…but four of the World cup’s group stage games.


My viewing began with a double header; France V. Columbia and England v. Mexico. First I had the opportunity of witnessing one of the World Cup’s biggest upsets as France fell 2-0 to Columbia. As shocking as this result was, I believe that it served as a lesson for every team to never underestimate it’s opponent.


Seeing as I knew one of the players for Mexico, their 2-1 loss to England was a bit devastating from a personal standpoint. While Mexico dominated and looked like the overall better team, they had momentary breakdowns in their defensive third, which resulted in them conceiting two goals.


Later that week I was also able to attend the Ivory Coast V. Norway game as well as the Costa Rica v. Brazil game. The atmosphere and Joie the vivre that was present throughout the Moncton stadium was one that I was pleased to be a part of. At times I was distracted from the game, as the “cheering wave” would overwhelm the crowd section by section. It was amazing.


As the Cup progresses, and out of the eight teams that I was able to see, six of them moved on to the round of sixteen, two of those six moved on to the quarter finals, and one of them, England, will make its first ever appearance in the World Cup Semi finals.


In my opinion the world cup is a beautiful event that speaks a universal language. Not only does it bring a group of people together… but it brings nations closer as a community.

Observations from an Elite Coach - Jerry Smith


Jerry Smith, Head Coach of the Santa Clara University Women’s team, is widely recognized as one of the elite college coaches in America. He is directly responsible for developing several elite professional players and US National Team players.

Jerry has also had extensive experience in coach club soccer and was pleased to share his insights on player development, club soccer, parental involvement and developing traits for young players.


On Player Development…. Coach Smith emphasized the importance of developing a sound technical base with both feet, motivating young players to above all understand that the development process is a lengthy one. He shared the 10,000 hour commitment plan for players that want to play at the highest level and the importance of working with qualified coaches.


On Parental Involvement…. Coach Smith strongly encouraged parents to support their children by providing the best possible learning environment and resist the temptation of short term results versus long term development. Club jumping to attain results or playing levels were deemed very detrimental to the overall development of the player. Parents can play a vital role in their children’s development by encouraging goal setting, helping their children develop a passion to play, supporting creativity, and by visualizing the game by watching collegiate and professional teams in person and on television.


On Developing Traits…. Coach Smith characterized what high level coaches look for when identifying and recruiting players. The ideal players are technically proficient, tactically knowledgeable, physically fit, creative, self-motivated, students of the game, respectful of the game and all those involved, open minded and positive role models.


Our thanks to Jerry Smith for sharing his vast experience with our membership. We look forward to visiting Santa Clara in the Fall to observe and enjoy high level collegiate soccer!
