SD Flash is comprised solely of San Diego based players and things will stay that way as Warren explained the philosophy by saying, ”I believe it is important to to give local players the opportunity to play professionally in San Diego.”
He went on to say, “The mission of the SD Flash is to inspire all youth soccer players (girls and boys) to play soccer at higher levels. I also believe it is important to give today’s young soccer players access to quality pro soccer in their hometown of San Diego. Young soccer players need to watch professional soccer in person and can learn a lot from pro players. To that end, we are inviting all Youth Players (under 14) in San Diego to come watch the SD Flash Soccer matches for free!”
