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. Our Junior Academy teams train 2-3x weekly based on age and compete in respective league games and tournaments/events based on level
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.
