National Premier League Champions
Elk Grove Soccer 02G Platinum
The championship was FC Elk Grove’s third major title of the calendar year with the side having picked up NPL Champions League and State Cup honors as well, while the Earthquakes come home with the national title as well as a Champions League victory.
Thanks to a strong defense that only allowed one goal throughout five games, Elk Grove captured the title early Monday with a 1-0 overtime victory over FC Stars West, a top side from Massachusetts.
“A lot of it was defensive just because the teams we played were very direct, there wasn’t a lot of build up play from our opposition, they weren’t really trying to play the ball on the floor,” said head coach Ben Ormsby. “We had to be tight in our lines and organized.”
For Ormsby and FC Elk Grove, the title will go down in the annals of the club’s history as a high point.
“We’ve had really good girls teams in the past,” Ormsby said. “Some of the older staff members, board members, were telling me that when we had Megan Rapinoe in the club, we took them to a national title and got second.
“For the club [this title is] one of those beacons,” he added. “The club’s been around for a long time…for us it’s now just trying to get players to understand that we’re trying to develop good soccer players.”
Elk Grove Soccer will host its annual opening day jamboree on August 18, 2018, at Elk Grove Regional Park. With players, spectators, referees, and coaches, the organization anticipates nearly 20,000 people in attendance.
Elk Grove Soccer’s event is the largest gathering of soccer players in the greater Sacramento area. This is considered soccer’s opening day. Players will come together for their first games and pictures, enjoy music, food and BBQ, skill challenges, and other family soccer related fun.
“Our community is growing and so is soccer. Elk Grove Soccer, the community’s oldest and largest soccer organization, is growing in numbers; Elk Grove Community Park is a perfect venue to bring our families together to share in this beautiful sport,” said Dave Groves, Elk Grove Soccer’s Recreation leader. “This one-day event helps our players and families understand they are part of something valuable in our community. We want to ensure that we focus on the fun of soccer and build memories for our children and their families.”

FC Elk Grove 05G Elite 1 win the Kickoff Classic U12 Gold Bracket, May 27-28, 2017. Coach Jack and Assistant coach Simon lead girls through the group stages seeing off CenCal Cosmos 5-0, starting off the tournament strong. Up next was tough opposition in South Lake Tahoe, but the team only needed a tie or better Sunday morning to advance to the Finals. The girls emerged with a 3-1 victory. Yuba Flash had beaten Elk Grove 1-0 during spring league but were denied beating them again when Elk Grove Scored a late goal to make it 1-1 to send them in to the Championship Game.
Ajax United 05G Black were waiting for the Elk Grove Girls and this was going to be an entertaining game. First half ended goalless but were chances for both teams, but with 10 minutes to go it looked like Elk Grove had sealed the win until Ajax scored immediately after to send the game in to extra time where no goals were scored, which meant the game would be decided in PKs. Elk Grove’s goalkeeper became the hero saving 2 penalty kicks leading to Elk Grove winning 3-2 in the PK shootout.
