Highlights

Encourage you to seek excellence – Statistics show that nearly 90% of high school seniors playing soccer in the US do not make it on to college soccer.  With nearly 100,000 high school seniors in American soccer clubs, and 8,000 – 9,000 roster spots for incoming freshman each year open in college soccer, it is clear that making it to the next level will not be easy.  Surf SC aim to help players understand the importance of training everyday to improve on all aspects of their game, It is also important that players take the same approach in the classroom, and we will always be a reminder for the importance of grades and academic achievement in the recruiting process.

One-on-One Meetings –  Our goal is to provide players and their families with the necessary information and tools required to maximize their college recruitment options.  We understand each Surf players college search is unique to them, so we pride ourselves in providing all Surf players with one-on-one meeting opportunities with our College Director, Gareth Tomlinson.

Individual College meetings give players an incredible opportunity to build a college recruitment profile, learn how to communicate effectively with college coaches, gain understanding of the NCAA, NAIA, and Junior College system, fully understand the many types of financial aid available to the player and their family, and address personal questions as it pertains to their college process.
