spring league photos of youth soccer

April 11, 2015 was our first big home stand for the Black Oaks Youth Soccer Club at Jennings Park in Santa Rosa.  This is a slideshow from three of the games: U10 Boys Thunder, U11 Lady Oaks, and U15 Boys Black Oaks.  I was so proud to see our club grow and our players improving their skills against some tough competition; if it were only possible to get photos of all the players and teams?! Volunteer photographers are always welcome.  If you see a photo you like and want a higher resolution image, email me at alex.campbell@blackoaksfc.com.

Snapshots of Spring Preseason Training

I went out to Jennings last night to meet our new goalie trainer Arturo Ornelas and take some photos.  It was a hive of energy with all our teams getting ready for spring league. Arturo was excellent with our younger players.  He hopes to play goalkeeper for Sonoma State University next season.  Best of luck, Arturo, and thank you for training our goalies.  Great job to all our coaches for a great start to 2015.
