About Surf Soccer Club - History

The recipient of the IMG award for most successful club in the nation for moving players to the next level of play, the San Diego Surf Soccer Club is proud to be San Diego’s Premier competitive soccer club. We are a member of the ECNL– for boys and girls. These two leagues represent the highest level of youth soccer competition in the United States with the goal of producing the next generation of National team players.

The oldest competitive youth soccer club in San Diego, San Diego Surf Soccer Club was established in 1977 to draw the best players from the surrounding areas of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Leucadia, Solana Beach and Del Mar to form teams to compete against the best teams in southern California. Surf Soccer Club’s overall competitive vision and organizational focus has remained largely unchanged, as 30+ years later the Club continues to field teams who compete at the highest levels locally, regionally and nationally.

Surf Soccer Club has produced 11 National Championships, 29 Regional Champions, over 74 State Champions, hundreds of college scholarship athletes, over 157+ National team players and multiple MLS and professional players. At every age group, Surf Soccer Club teams are playing at the highest levels against the toughest competition, in the most competitive leagues.

100% of the girls on our first team, and close to 100% of the girls on our second team at U18 received scholarships to play soccer in college in 2019. The intensive training received at Surf Soccer Club, as well as a commitment to the development of the player sets up the conditions to succeed 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.
