College of the Desert would like our local high school soccer players to take advantage of the opportunities available to them at College of the Desert.  After attending and competing in athletics at College of the Desert, many students are able to transfer on to four year institutions. Students who are successful athletically and academically while attending College of the Desert may qualify for an athletic/academic scholarship. It is our goal to promote student success and provide opportunities and resources to aid students in their academic and athletic goals. 

This philosophy is shared by the organizers of this event: Head Coach/Adjunct Faculty, Pipo Castillo and Assistant Coaches, Emmanuel de la Rosa and AJ Nebergall.

The college invites all soccer players, families, major corporations, foundations, business owners and community groups to show their support for the community-sponsored soccer event and to demonstrate the importance of providing continuous support to talented youth in the Coachella Valley.

For more information, please contact: Pipo Castillo, Emmanuel De La Rosa, or AJ Nebergall at 760-541-2918. Donations are 100% tax deductible and can be made to:  College of the Desert Varsity Soccer.
