Surf Nation is comprised of like-minded coaches and administrators dedicated to our Surf mission to provide the best experiences and opportunities for their athletes. Since 2020, Rhode Island Surf has been a proud partner of Surf Nation, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the partnership, watching their amazing club grow and seeing them take full advantage of being under the Surf brand.

We sat down with South Valley Surf Soccer Club’s Director, Dana Hamilton, to learn more about how Surf has helped his club, players, coaches, and administrators and their upcoming season goals:

What is the biggest value to South Valley Surf being part of the Surf Nation community?

The biggest value for our club has been Surf Select. Truly a great program that has added life-changing experiences for our players.

What has been a club highlight during the 22/23 season?

The club highlight was definitely winning E64 National titles in the 08 and 09 girls. We were also crowned the best girls club in all E64. Kristy Walker won both titles in her first year as our Girls’ Director.

As you approach the 23/24 season, what are some of the targets you have set yourself as a Club?

I think for us 23-24 will just be about doing even better than the previous year. We’ve never been more together as a staff, and we just want to continue to get better and hopefully keep moving to higher platforms.
