WC Surf SC is proud to announce the scheduling of our first ever spring TOPSoccer session!  Due to this programs early success this past fall, we're offering a 4 week TOPSoccer session for young athletes with special needs in March.  TOPSoccer stands for (The Outreach Program for Soccer) and you can learn more about this program by clicking HERE, including registration.  

To enrich the community by developing athletes with a strong foundation of skills to play at any level, providing our players and families an environment that focuses on teaching life lessons and building a love for soccer.  The Kits for Kids Program aims to do just that!

Many of you gave generously last fall to this new program and we are happy to report the results of your donations.  We collected over 160 jerseys, 100 shorts, 75 socks, 33 pairs of boots, back packs and one goalie kit! We are pleased to share with you that we will be providing these to four different applicants. The recipients are two worthy nonprofit organizations and hometown connections to two of our very own coaches.

2019/20 Laws of the Game

Mobile App Laws of the Game

To note: WC Surf SC has programs that are locally, regionally and nationally governed.  The Laws of the Game, and modified rules, are then applied to various age groups in our recreation and competitive programs.  Not all age groups have the exact same Laws of the Game or rule modifications.  Check with your Coach or email us if you have questions.

And be sure to THANK A REF when you are out there this weekend!
As a gentle reminder, please be reminded about posted signs while visiting our local schools and city parks.  Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Our intention of this section is to offer resources to our parents on methods, ideas, and stories about great ways to be a support while enjoying how your son or daughter plays this beautiful game!  The groups listed have no association with our club, yet we find them informative, helpful, and impactful.
