South Carolina Surf Boys Pathway

The Surf Pathway

The South Carolina Surf Soccer program supports soccer skill development from the early years up through high school. Based on the US Soccer Curriculum, children are trained and evaluated based on age-appropriate skills and measures.

While younger players gain a solid soccer foundation, older players are prepared to play at the highest levels – having opportunities to team up with players from other Surf affiliate programs and play in tournaments in front of college scouts and coaches. The older players also have access to College ID camps and a program to support their college-level goals. Players at these levels also have opportunities to “play up” and combine with the most competitive players to team up for special events.

For Boys & Girls Born 2009-2013

Aims of Program:

The aim of the Junior Academy program is to create an environment that allows players to have fun whilst learning the fundamentals of soccer. Our focus is on individual technical development in a fun and safe environment.
