Player Development Initiatives:
The aim of the Academy program is to create an environment that allows players to have fun while learning the fundamentals of soccer. Our focus is on individual technical development in a fun and safe environment. We aim to place players at the right level knowing players develop at different rates, but all have the potential for greatness. There is a team for every player, and coaches focused on developing players for long term success.
What is Surf Academy?
Surf Academy is an exciting program based on what’s best for the players. The player’s individual skills development and enjoyment is at the heart of the program. All players get professional training and get practices throughout the year with a maximum of three teams per age group. With a lead coach at each age group, players of all levels have the opportunity to train together and advance in the program.

This program is a very organized environment where the individual technical development is the main focus.

Training (Flexible Training Schedule)
Academy players will be assigned a training schedule, typically Mon-Wed or Tue-Thur. All Academy players are allowed to train any day of the week. If a player misses a training session, they can train on a different day. If a players wants to train extra, not a problem - all academy players can train as much as they like! SA Surf Academy program is designed to be as flexible as possible for our members.
OFFICIAL TRAINING SCHEDULE MAY VARY BASED COACH AVAILABILITY & LEVEL OF PLAY
League games are held on a Saturday(s) and Sunday(s); games will be home and away with limited travel in the San Antonio Metro Area. Standings are not kept for league play.
Players are able to play on multiple teams and play in a maximum of (2) two games per day. We register our players in multiple leagues and schedule friendlies during the season to maximize the number of games for our players; a typical season game count for an Academy 7v7 player is between 10-20 games per season. Parents can accept or decline game invites to be flexible with personal schedules or sibling conflicts.
Tournaments are optional, and are an out-of-pocket expense. Tournaments are typically held at the beginning and the end of each season. Tournaments selected to play in are local with minimal travel. Travel request at this age group is rare, but not out of the question - we work with our parents and do what they want to do. Tournaments will typically have a tournament champion and runner-up. This is the one time during the seasonal year this age group plays games and standings are kept.
