Surf Cup Sports is proud to announce the launch of our newest region Missoula Surf, which will sit between our existing partners of Montana and Eastern Washington Surf. Starting 2021, Missoula Surf will focus on Junior Academy and Grassroots programming building from the ground up to create improved experiences and opportunities for players within the community.
With the support of our existing partner clubs, Montana Surf & Eastern Washington, Missoula Surf will connect the corridor between Bozeman and Spokane and provide a solid development pathway for its players in the Big Sky State. Missoula Surf is devoted to building a soccer foundation focused on player development and providing the best experiences and opportunities to their players; joining Surf Nation provides a clear opportunity to fulfill this mission.
Missoula Surf will be joining Surf Nation with the support of the San Diego Surf Soccer Club, which has a proven track record of developing players and moving them through the player pathway into the US National Team Program and the professional and collegiate ranks. Missoula Surf will provide high-quality programming at the local and regional levels with a pathway for elite players to access the Surf Select program. Missoula Surf will deliver a holistic approach to player development by challenging players to learn the game in a positive 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 the right people who are driven to build from the ground up when entering a unique project like this who are dedicated to our mission to provide the best of the best experiences within their local community. Missoula Surf is in an area that allows existing Surf clubs to collaborate and provide additional opportunities to our players & coaches at a local and regional level.”
“Missoula has a fantastic soccer community, and we are excited to become the newest Surf partner in western Montana. We look forward to working with other Surf clubs to provide more playing opportunities for players of all ages and abilities. Missoula Surf is ready to start making waves.” – Travis Goodkind, President Missoula Surf
