Surf Cup Sports (San Diego, CA) is proud to announce the launch of our newest partner club, Phoenix Surf. Arizona Select and Goodyear Soccer Club will be transitioning to Phoenix Surf and will join the Surf brand to build a community powerhouse that will create improved experiences and opportunities for all players within the area.
Phoenix Surf will be launching with the support of 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 and the professional and collegiate ranks. Led by a community of experienced coaches and passionate soccer minds, Phoenix Surf will provide high-quality programming and a complete pathway for players throughout the community. Phoenix Surf will work with and learn from existing Surf Nation affiliates to deliver a holistic approach to player development which will challenge players to learn the game in a positive and encouraging environment.
