SF Glens Evolution 2016 Summer Camps
Tradition. Community. Excellence.
San Francisco’s BEST SUMMER SOCCER CAMP is back!
SF Glens Evolution will be hosting FOUR weeks of summer camps throughout June and August for children between the ages of 4-13. Our camps provide action-packed fun and tons of soccer, and are an ideal way to keep your kids active and playing soccer this summer.
Camps are open to every level of play: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. For beginners, our experienced coaching staff will lead activities and exercises to teach the basic techniques that are the foundation of the game. For our more advanced campers, we will tailor specific sessions that further technical ability and promote tactical (game play) understanding. Campers will always be grouped based on age and playing level.
All of our camp coaches are licensed, and include our Director of Player Development Shaun Ramsden (USSF A license); and Club Director of Coaching Mike McNeill (UEFA B License); as well as our most recent addition to the coaching staff, Mike Keller, the head coach of NCAA II side Academy of Art Men's Soccer.
In addition, we will also have a designated goalkeeper coach at each of this summer's camps. Each morning, our goalkeepers will work closely with this coach in a specialized training environment that teaches all aspects of the position. After lunch, goalkeepers will then join back in with their appropriate groups for the afternoon session.
Our Glens Evolution summer camps offer affordable prices and many different pick up and drop off options to provide you as much convenience as possible. We are also pleased to provide a sibling discount for families with more than one camper. You may email Benkay at email@example.com to receive a promotion code for this discount.
And, at the end of the week, each camper leaves with a soccer ball and t-shirt!
This year, our June camps will be held at West Sunset playgrounds and our August camps will run at the new Beach Chalet soccer fields. All camps run from 9am - 3pm and dates are as follows:

SF Glens Evolution
The SF Glens Evolution Difference
As competitive soccer players and families make their club decisions for 2016/2017 play, we think it's worth reminding everyone what makes SF Glens Evolution unique.
Our club motto is Tradition, Community, Excellence.
They are more than simply words on a banner.
Tradition comes from the fact that the Glens were founded in 1961 and have a soccer playing tradition unmatched in San Francisco. Everything we do as club honors the fact that many came before us and many will come after. It's our job to be the best we can be to bridge the two in a way that means we're always going forward.
Community comes from our club's deep ties to the city itself, and our many efforts in fundraising and volunteering for causes that make a difference to the people of the city we represent. Our players & families want a soccer experience that is less of a business and more of a club. In short: our club is a community.
Excellence comes from our approach to training, development and competitive play. Our players are frequently the very best in their age group and our teams compete at the highest possible levels of play.
In the end we believe SF Glens Evolution offers something unique to San Francisco youth players and families:
a club that looks after a player through his or her entire development path;
a club that offers the highest number of licensed coaches;
a club that opens the doors to top playing opportunities here and abroad; and
a club where everyone has a chance to participate regardless of playing level and socioeconomic status.
Players + Programs = Performance.
Our player development model can be summarized by the simple equation above.
In order to develop top players you need to have top players. No other club has as many as SF Glens Evolution in San Francisco. It is then, through focussed and planned training with groups of skilled and talented players, that the young player can begin to develop his or her game in a way that takes it to the next level. When you come to the soccer fields around San Francisco, it's easy to spot SF Glens Evolution players training (we don't call it practice) because our players are out there--in their matching training shirts--working harder and smarter than anyone.
Importantly, we support our talented players with a large number of quality soccer development programs--all planned and executed by professional and highly-licensed coaches--that develop the many technical, tactical, physical, and psychological skills necessary to play soccer at the highest levels.
Perfromance is the natural result. SF Glens Evolution teams regularly compete for titles and cups, and have created the reputation of being "the team" to watch in San Francisco.
This year (and beyond) we hope you will consider SF Glens Evolution and all our club has to offer.
To learn more contact us today at email@example.com call our office at 415-349-8333, or stop by the office at 2521 Judah St. btw 30th and 31st.

SF GLENS EVOLUTION
Tradition. Community. Excellence.
Thank You San Francisco!!
We’d like to thank all of you for making it out to Beach Chalet Soccer Fields last Saturday for our second tryout session. It was an enormous success with 1,000+ kids on hand, dozens of our best coaches, and three great fields to stretch out on and watch some fantastic and talented kids.
We’d also like to thank the many parent volunteers that made the event go smoothly, kept the coaches well fueled with coffee and hydrated with water, as well as those that got there extra early and stayed extra late to set-up and break down what was an impressive set of SF Glens Evolution signage.
Tryouts are never perfect but we hope that we got a lot more right than we got wrong. If you would like to make a comment or suggestion about tryouts, please visit our Tryout Page on the SFGlensEvolution.org website, complete our short survey and leave us your comment or suggestion.
Tryouts Next Steps: What’s Happening Now
For the last 10 days, our coaches have been getting together, comparing notes, and discussing teams and possible rosters for fall. It’s an enormous task but one they thoroughly enjoy as the exciting possibility of working with so many great kids and their families is why coaches are in the business in the first place.
This week and through next weekend some of you may be hearing from our coaches in order to clarify a few things or better gauge interest. We will then begin the process of sending out formal offers for your consideration.
Please keep in mind that under a city-wide agreement no one needs to make a commitment before February 10, 2016.
In addition, SF Glens Evolution, due its size and high number of top coaches, follows a “club” model in many of our more competitive age groups.
This means that players not initially selected for a Black (“first”) team always have the opportunity to earn their way onto those teams (or any team they set their sights on) as they develop and can be “called up” at any time. We also play a high number of tournaments as well as the prestigious NorCal Premier State Cup where rosters are expanded to give a broader set of players the chance to compete at the highest levels of soccer available.
You can review the entire process by looking at our 2016 Tryout FAQ page.
Congratulations to These Glens Evolution Players
We’d like to recognize the following SF Glens Evolution players—Takumi Elbert (2001), Zach Thomas (2003), Kol Bassuk (’2004), Bradley Berman (2004), and Barry Cahalane (2004)—for making their respective Cal North ODP player pool!
In addition, TK, Kol and Zach have been further selected to the travel squad and will be competing against the very best players their age.
Also, four players on Evolution ’02 Black have been selected to travel and train at the West Ham United Academy in London later this spring.
In addition to the aforementioned Kol Bassuk, Omataye Martins (2002), Liam O’Brien (2003), and Owen Flanagan (2002) will be flying over to London and spending a week training, competing and learning about the famed West Ham club, as well as taking in some sights and a Premiership match.
We are proud of these players and all SF Glens Evolution boys and girls that are working hard and chasing their soccer dreams!
SF Glens Evolution Coaches and Staff at NSCAA Convention in Baltimore & NorCal AGM in San Ramon
Over the last few weeks, several SF Glens Evolution coaches and staff participated in important national and regional events on behalf of the club. Both in Baltimore and San Ramon, they made new friends and contacts, shared the growing excitement over our merged club, as well as learned about exciting new programs and opportunities for coaches and players alike. Stay tuned this spring as you will be hearing about some of these terrific programs, which will help us take our club to the next level.

SF Glens Evolution is not a business; it’s a club. Your club. And one designed to serve your child’s soccer development from micro through top, academy-level play. Along the way there will be wins and losses, many events, memories, and good times that we’d like to see our community share with us online.
Thank you from everyone at SF Glens Evolution!!
Next Steps in Place to Insure Every Player Gets Proper Placement on a Fall 2016 Team
Many thanks to the parents and players, as well as SF Glens Evolution coaches, staff, and volunteers, that made our second tryout date a terrific event. Again, we had over 1,000 players attend and we were not only inspired by the beautiful setting at Beach Chalet Soccer Fields but the amazing talent on display.
Our club will be getting in touch with each and every player very soon as we pride ourselves on having the right team placement opportunity for players of all levels.
In the meantime, please take a moment to look below at a few of the pictures and videos from the terrific day, read our 2016 Tryout FAQ to learn exactly what happens next, or let us know if you have any further questions.
Additionally, if you have a player that was unable to attend either of our tryout sessions please contact us to see if an individual evaluation may be made.
SF Glens Evolution Organization wishes to thank all who came out to our 1st tryout yesterday at Crocker Amazon. We hope you found the process and people we had in place very efficient and organized, and we hope your child had a good overall tryout experience.
History was made yesterday in San Francisco: Over 1,200 players attend our tryout event yesterday. The quality and enthusiasm of the players was something that all of our teams of coaches were talking about. We are all truly excited and proud to be a part of this new club, SF Glens Evolution, and we look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to be a part of it as well.
A few reminders:
THANKS AGAIN AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE BRAND NEW COMPLEX AT BEACH CHALET ON THE 23RD!
