Surf Launches Newest Partner Club, Rhode Island
Surf Cup Sports (San Diego, CA) is proud to announce the launch of our newest partner club, Rhode Island. Based in two separate locations in the Ocean State, Surf Rhode Island is devoted to the Surf mission of creating the ‘best of the best’ experiences and opportunities for all players and families. Rhode Island is built upon the success of the national Surf Soccer brand and was founded to replicate the success in player development of the prestigious San Diego Surf Club.
Rhode Island will be launching in conjunction with the San Diego Surf Club, which has a proven track record of developing players and seeing them move through the player pathway into the US National Team Program as well as into the professional and collegiate ranks. Led by the most experienced, knowledgeable, and passionate soccer minds in the state, Surf Rhode Island will provide high-quality programming and a full pathway for elite players right here on your doorstep in RI. Rhode Island Surf delivers a holistic approach to player development where we challenge players to learn the game in a positive and encouraging environment.
“We strive to make Surf Nation stronger in talent every single day,” says Brian Enge, Surf CEO. “As our Surf Nation Program continues to expand, it’s important that we partner with clubs and staff that are run by like-minded coaches and administrators as they are dedicated to our mission to provide the best of the best experiences and opportunities for their athletes. We are delighted to move into an area that has such a deep talent of players and coaches.”
Surf Rhode Island will consist of two regions; North and Central. The North will be based out of Seekonk and Warwick, with the Central based out of North Kingstown and East Greenwich. In addition to the two regions, Surf Rhode Island will also have an Elite program, offering top quality competition in both tournaments and league play to the best players in the state. The Elite program will be based in the center of the state, and is led by the best coaches RI has to offer, with proven track records of development and success in Rhode Island and further afield.
“We are extremely proud to be able to offer the Surf Soccer Club here in the Ocean State,” says RI Surf Director of Soccer, Johan Forslof. “The club has a proven track record of developing players, and we are excited to grow the Surf Nation here in Rhode Island. We have a strong coaching staff, full of experience and passion, and we are excited about the opportunities and quality that this will present to the talented players of Rhode Island,” Forslof added.
The top players in Rhode Island Surf will have direct access to Surf Select, an identification program built through Surf Nation. This program offers selected players the opportunity to compete in the best international and domestic events, picking from a player pool that expands from Rhode Island through to Hawaii.
