And finally, CONGRATS to Surf DA 18/19's Sara Jayne Affleck who was featured on SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays of the Night for her "Fancy Footwork & World Class Finish!" These girls left it all on the field and played their hearts out. #2nd in the NATION is a huge accomplishment, #SurfPROUD is an understatement.
Our Surf DA Girls program was the ONLY program in the southwest region that qualified in all three groups for the DA Playoffs, such a massive achievement for our club!
PLAYOFF TEAMS / RESULTS:
Girls U18/19: National Championship Finalists
Girls U16/17: Tied for 1st in group, did not advance due to goal differential
Girls U15: Won group, eliminated in the quarterfinals (1-0 to Placer United, National Championship Finalists)
Boys U16/17: Drew a tough bracket, they fought hard but did not advance
Additionally, US Soccer asked Surf to include our Girls U15 and U17 DPL teams in the DA Summer Showcase. Our DPL teams went a combined 4-1-1, super impressive!
Girls: U14, U15 II (DPL), U16, U16/17 II (DPL)
Boys: U15, U15 II (DA U14 were invited to play up)
Congrats to all of our Surf Teams who played in the DA Playoffs & Showcase, what a great showing for our club!
SURF WPSL FINISHES 2ND PLACE
Congratulations to the SURF WPSL team that finished in 2nd place in their inaugural season, just behind the San Diego SeaLions, in the San Diego Division. Despite beating the SeaLions 5-3 in their last league game and a record of 6-1-1, our Surf team fell just 2 points short of making the 2019 playoffs.
Surf was one of the 29 expansion clubs added to the WPSL for the 2019 season. "With over 15 returning Surf players, we were able to offer an opportunity to our current players and alumni to continue playing in an elite summer league" said Coach Kate Norton. "I’m very pleased with our first season in the WPSL. Our players were able to adjust to playing with new players and created a competitive environment at training every week! We had success on the field as we were able to beat some really great teams. The results from this season give me hope for future WPSL seasons for our Surf girls" added Norton.
We hope everyone was able to get out to one of our WPSL games and see our Surf team in action. Thank you to all of our younger Surf players for being a part of this incredible experience, we LOVED showing our youngest Surf players what hard work and dedication to our sport truly looks like!
Surf Sports Park: Facility Updates
We have worked tirelessly on our Phase 2 facility upgrades and can't wait you all to get a sneak peek of our new “Surf Training Center” (formally known as the back fields) which we will officially open later this summer. You will see an expanded area of playable grass, upgraded grass and new parking infrastructure. We still have work to do on this area but you are the first to get to experience it!
After hosting the ECNL National Playoffs and the DA National Championships over the past 3 weeks, with over 500 college coaches in attendance, it's clear to us that Surf has the best facility in America. We are proud to have a facility that allows our players to train on the best of the best fields nationwide and we know that all the hard work we’ve put into our facility is working to creating a nationally recognized soccer park that we are all lucky and honored to call our home.
Thank you again for your patience during the process and enjoy these new benefits of being part of Team Surf while we work hard to make our facility incredible, Phase 2 is almost complete and we'll be celebrating soon!
