On June 15th 2017, Delta Youth Soccer League lost one of their family members.
Marcos Garcia was a handsome, caring and sweet young man who's life revolved around friends, school and especially soccer. Anyone who knew Marcos, knew he was a very talented soccer player. He wore his idol Cristiano Ronaldo's number: number 7 every time he was on the field. Which was no surprise because he lived, breathed and slept soccer. He was a very popular young man who became friends with everyone he encountered. He was also a beloved son, brother, cousin and incredible uncle. He had big dreams and was trying to find his place in life.
Marcos Garcia played soccer for many years at Delta and recently made the roster of one of our comp traveling teams. His Dad, Paul, also a long time soccer coach at Delta. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Marcos and his family during this tragic time. Gone too soon, RIP Marcos....
Antioch's First All-Weather Turf Fields
Antioch recently completed a near $3.1 million project to replace grass at two fields at Antioch Community Park with all-weather synthetic turf -- making it the first city facility with such a surface.
New lights were also installed so the complex can be used at night. "We're really excited and it's something we're looking forward to," said Jim Bonwell, president of the Delta Youth Soccer League. "It's something other leagues don't have."
In particular, having an all-weather field and lights during the winter months will be huge for its competitive leagues, he said. The city has about 2,000 youths and 1,000 adults who play soccer year-round, he said.
