La Jolla Youth Soccer coach scores new post

Rick Flores, the popular coach from La Jolla Youth Soccer, recently left to take a job as associate technical director for Utah Youth Soccer, based in Salt Lake City and his office is in the Real Salt Lake MLS Stadium. A U.S. Youth Soccer TOPSoccer national instructor, Flores wrote in an e-mail last week that he is happy in his new position but that he ‘misses the players, parents and coaches of the La Jolla Soccer League.’ He is pictured here with the La Jolla Boys Under-8 team at the Rotary Cup in Encinitas, where they were finalists. The next year, they went on to play in the BU9 division and were undefeated in the Presidio Soccer League.
