Background

The Condors B04 team was originally formed in 2012 by Coach Eliseo Romero as a group of combined '03 and '04 players. To remain competitive, the team split off in 2014 and formed an '04 squad. The '04 team, Coached by Coach Romero went undefeated in their first fall season at the bronze level. The following season the team continued to have much success in the silver division and was promoted to play in silver elite the following fall season. Since then the team has promoted each season to become the youngest boys team on the central coast to reach the prestigious CSL Premier division. After a strong 3rd place finish in their inaugural premier season, only one point behind first and the leading team in goal differential, this will now be the first boys team on the central coast to repeat as a participant in premier. The team was also given a perfect 5 star rating for fair play by their peers and referees.

The Condors B04 Romero team have remained ranked within the top 50 in the nation for over three consecutive years. It is this consistency that has attracted some of the top players from Lompoc to San Ardo. A total of six players have been invited to the Olympic Development Program (ODP) tryouts, with one selection to the ODP final roster. 

In 2019, this team became the first Condor team to compete in Europe. They won the Barcelona Cup by winning all 5 games of the international competition.

Through the dedicated efforts of Head Coach Eliseo Romero and Assistant Coach Issac Briviesca, this team continues to work towards a high level mastery of technical ball skills and tactics. The team prides itself on playing creative and possession oriented soccer with an emphasis on sound defense and an offense that has quick strike capability.

Mission

Provide a structured soccer team that fosters the ability to sustain a team of excellent young men, in both character and soccer ability, to compete as a cohesive unit at the highest possible level. 


Goals

Continued success through comprehensive development while maintaining our national ranking and Premier Division status. Through our system of total player development, we aspire to graduate players from this team that will go on to accomplish their dreams and goals on and off the soccer pitch. This team prides itself on excellent soccer, outstanding academic achievement, and the highest standards of moral character and integrity. At the end of the day, whether these young men continue in soccer or not, they will be prepared for success at the next stage of their life.  

Next Steps

After a strong finish in our inaugural appearance in premier in the fall of 2018, this team will be returning to premier in 2019 with the goal of winning the division in the fall and competing for a National Cup title in the spring.   

The Condors B04 Romero team holds spot tryouts throughout the year. If your birthday is January 1, 2004 and later and you are a talented, motivated and dedicated soccer player that would like to play for this team, contact Coach Eliseo at 805-431-5827
