Oceanside CA— Earlier this year, the Oceanside SoCal Legacy Beach Soccer team, coached by Steven Citron, traveled across the US to Viginia Beach to compete in the 24th</sup. Annual North American Sand Soccer Championships (NASSC), the largest beach soccer tournament on the East Coast and in the world.
With over 1,100 teams, competing on over 60 fields, spanning over 25 city blocks of prime oceanfront real estate, on over a mile and a half of golden sand beaches, this “World Cup” equivalent of an international beach soccer competition is hard to miss, attracting teams from around the globe, including nearly 20 states and countries from as far away as Africa, Portugal, Germany, Brazil, Norway, the Caribbean, and Canada’s Northwest Territories.
At the end of it all, the SoCal Legacy Beach Soccer team came home with the title. A new video highlights their championship run which can be seen below.
