The Surf Select program brings together the most talented players and coaches from all of Surf Nation (50 clubs) to compete together under the Surf banner at the highest levels. Through a series of regional and national events, players within Surf Nation, will be selected to represent Surf Select in national and international competitions. Surf Select is the pinnacle of the Surf experience.
Surf Nation is split up into geographic regions to create regional teams. We are part of the Northwest Region, which includes the following clubs:
Washington East Surf
British Columbia Surf
Western Washington Surf
Players from all over the northwest will now have a chance to train and compete on a regional team at high level events in front of college coaches. The top players from each regional team are then invited to San Diego, CA for the Surf Select National ID Camp. At National ID camp, players are competing for opportunities to join the BLUE team or the WHITE to travel to high level events internationally or domestically.
The training received at Surf Soccer Club, as well as a commitment to the development of the player leads to success at the highest level. Exposure to hundreds of college coaches at Surf Cup and College Cup gives Surf Soccer Club players the best chance to find a scholarship pathway to college.
