San Diego, CA., April 10, 2024— Surf Nation proudly announces that Match Fit Academy is officially part of the Surf Soccer Family. In the world of youth sports, the Surf brand is renowned for professionalism, elite event management, high-quality coaching, and, most importantly, a deep commitment to player development, which has a proven track record of developing players into International Youth Training Centers, Professional Academies and onto the Collegiate Ranks.

Effective January 1, 2024, Surf Soccer has officially joined March Fit Academy’s ownership and leadership team and will play a key role in the club’s future development to ensure that Match Fit Academy remains the premium youth soccer destination in the Northeast.

“MFA has been part of the Surf Nation Community since 2020. Our team brought the Surf leadership on board to ensure the club’s long-term sustainability and growth while providing enhanced resources and experiences for our families. Notably, over the past 24 years, many clubs have come and gone. Standing strong still today, MFA is poised for the next 24 years and beyond, thanks to this strategic decision,” said Jordan Raper, Match Fit Academy Executive Director.

“We believe Surf Soccer will continue to improve the development process and pathway for the many talented players in the New Jersey area. Our leadership team, brand support, and resources will allow us to impact players, coaches, and sports management executives on and off the field. We recognize New Jersey as a powerhouse in the soccer community, and we are excited to have Match Fit Academy integrated into the Surf Soccer Family, said Andy Prosser, Surf Nation Director.

This venture, reorganization, and continued resources provided by Surf Nation will ensure that MFA remains recognized as one of North America’s elite youth soccer clubs.
