Youth roundup: Davis turns up the Heat on the Blue Blast

By
From page B2 | December 05, 2013 |

The Davis Heat, a U17 girls soccer team, split a doubleheader the weekend before Thanksgiving, beating the Peninsula Blue Blast, 2-1, in the first match.

After falling behind 1-0 in that contest, Davis quickly got an equalizer from Hannah Thompson.

The game remained deadlocked for a while as Heat defenders Madison Nicholas, Mikayla Vang, Brooke Rosenblum, Kaitlyn Wagner, Annie Leck and Melissa Teuber made it tough on the Blast, and keeper Christina Roeckl-Navazio made a diving save.

Teuber then helped set up a local breakaway and Kristin Ward buried the eventual game-winner.

Davis players Jaha McClean, Sophia Hernandez and Ward kept the offensive pressure on in the second half and Heat keeper Vanessa Arellano made an outstanding save on a direct shot to clinch the win.

The locals did not fare as well in their second match, falling 2-0 to CASA Boca. Despite some good shot attempts from Renee Schuman, Vang and Ward, and good play in the middle by Leck and Alexia Moore, the Heat couldn’t come back from an early deficit.

UCD lacrosse clinics

The UCD women’s lacrosse program will present a series of four winter instructional clinics for players of all positions and skill levels who are in grades 5-12.

Each clinic takes place from 9 a.m. to noon at Aggie Stadium.

The series begins Saturday with a clinic focusing on motion offense and defensive systems. It will be followed by man-up/man-down situations (Dec. 31), a skills day (Jan. 11) and transition, 50/50s and draws (Jan. 25).

Each clinic costs $50, with a discounted entry of $150 for enrolling in all four. For more information or to register, visit www.ucdavissportscamps.com/lacrosse.

Five Starz volleyball

The Five Starz Volleyball Club’s Starlets program is accepting registration for the 2014 season. The Starlets offer an opportunity for young volleyball players who are not able to participate on travel teams but who would like to be a part of a competitive environment.

The program is open to players in grades four through nine, and participants will be split into fourth- through sixth-grade and seventh- through ninth-grade groups.

There are no tryouts for the Starlets program, which is designed to improve each player’s overall skills in a fun and competitive environment.

Beginning Jan. 12, Starlets will practice once a week for 12 weeks. The cost of $300 for all 12 sessions includes a T-shirt.

For more information, email [email protected].

Little League

Registration for Davis Little League now is open online and runs through Jan. 15.

Current registration costs vary — depending on the division in which a child plays — ranging from $100 for T-ball to $280 for junior league. It must be noted that fees go up $30 for each level between Jan. 1-15.

A new Challenger Division for special-needs players has been added.

Kids 4 to 14 years of age are eligible for DLL. League officials require players 9 or older to attend one of the to-be-scheduled January skills-assessment days.

Folks interested in managing in the spring must register as a volunteer by Dec. 31, according to registrar Karen Yoon.

Only online registration is accepted. Visit www.davislittleleague.org to sign up or learn more.

Hoops camp

Davis Wildcats will present a two-day basketball camp for kids in second through eighth grades on Sunday and Monday, Dec. 29-30, at Davis High.

The sessions will go from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the camp is open to kids of all skill levels.

There is an early-bird registration special of $85. After Dec. 22, the cost is $100.

Registration may be completed online at www.davishoops.com, where parents can find additional information about the ongoing program and current team tryouts.

UCD hoops clinic

The UC Davis basketball program is offering a two-day clinic for boys and girls in kindergarten through sixth grade on Dec. 22-23.

Interested athletes have the option to participate for a half-day, one day or two days.

The clinic will be limited to 60 participants, so families are urged to visit https://ucdavissportscamps.com/mensbasketball to sign up.

For more information, contact Aggie assistant basketball coach Kevin Nosek at 530-752-3501 or [email protected].
