Games Returning to Francis Ryan Park – Important Protocols

On the night before game day our coaches, staff, managers and players are very excited about returning to play the game that we love.

We have been inundated with news updates every day and today is no exception.

The following are protocols that we all have to adhere to whether we be coaches, players, families, friends and spectators, and last but not least, officials.

Please read carefully the rules and regulations for Francis Ryan Park below.

We wish everyone to have a wonderful time, but in a very safe environment, so it is up to us all to work together and make this happen for our children and our visiting opponents.

Good luck Ya’ll and GO HEAT! GO ESCO! – Let’s go make some memories!



Written by Jessica Escobedo – President Escondido Soccer Club.

Tracy Wright has been active in the Escondido Soccer Club community for over 24 years now. Even though her kids have aged out of our programs, she is still very much involved on our Board. She was recently referred to as “an Angel to our Club.” You will often find Tracy working hard in the snack bar on any given weekend, as well as distributing uniforms to coaches and managers for their teams during the week. 

Tracy actively helps the families of ESCO & FC Heat in working off to pay down their registration fees for voucher work; whether in the snack bar, BBQ area, or parking lot.  In addition, she helps tremendously on the fundraising side and is always the first to step up and assist wherever needed. Tracy’s heart of gold shines through & through. Her first priority is to help the players get on the field to play and assist by any means necessary. She has always gone above and beyond the call of duty, and that my friends is why we are highlighting our unsung hero here today.

So, if you’re out at Ryan Park please take a moment and give Tracy a heartfelt thank you!
