It is with great sadness that I am sharing the news of the passing of David Margrave on Thursday, June 11. Dave has been a long time referee volunteer in Area 1C and Region 214, South Pasadena, with an indomitable spirit even as cancer has taken its toll on his body. As recently as this April, Dave was still pursuing his National Referee badge and volunteering wherever and whenever he was asked. He will be missed.
The family has planned a Memorial Service for Saturday, June 27, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Garfield Youth House that Dave helped rebuild in 2007. The Youth House is located just north of the tennis courts in Garfield Park, located at 625 Stratford Avenue in South Pasadena.

A coaches account: It is not always about the win, it is the experience as a coach that we can give.
Hanoz KateliI have a player with autism on my U-12 soccer team and I am very proud to be his coach. The kid gives his best every single practice and game. Two weeks ago, I had one of the best moments in my coaching career when he scored a goal from the 18 yard line. Way to go kid !!! You make me and every player on our team proud.
