Select Program News and Notes:
 
Our Fall Select program will have team formation and tryouts in late May.  More details will be announced very soon, including summer clinics specifically dedicated to the Fall Select player level.  

Parents & Players - Since our Fall Select program team formations are based on tryouts, we encourage players to register for our recreation program to ensure a playing roster spot for the fall season.  Recreation registration fees will be credited back if your son/daughter are chosen for a Fall Select team.  Our Select program has different fees and those fees are accessed at time of roster offer post tryouts.  To register for our Fall Select Tryouts - CLICK HERE.
*to note - our tryouts for select will be based on small cohort size to ensure player and coach safety.  We will not be offering mass group tryouts so registering for our select tryouts will allow us to organize properly and be in compliance with our club's health and safety protocols.

Coaches - If you're interested in becoming a Select Coach, please CLICK HERE and complete this short form.  All coaches are carefully reviewed and final selection is from our club's Director of Coaching in collaboration with our Select Coordinator. 

If you have any questions about our Select program in general, please email logan@wcsc.org for more information.

17 Players from WC Surf Soccer Club are selected for the SURF Select National ID Team
Surf Nation and WC Surf Soccer Club congratulate 17 players at WC Surf who were selected for the SURF Select National team.  The Surf Select program brings together the most talented players and coaches from all Surf Nation to compete together under the Surf banner at the highest levels, including representing the club in national and international competitions, and in front of college coaches and professional scouts.  17 WC Surf players were selected from over 700 players, through a combination of video footage and evaluations from Surf Select West Camp and ID Camp.  Surf Nation feels "the final rosters are very strong at all age groups and represent well our Surf Nation community."

To everyone who participated and was not selected, we are proud of your effort and putting yourselves out there!  With each round of regional, state, and national selection teams we never know who our competitors are, and all we can ask is for players to put their best feet forward on the field.  You did just that and our Club congratulates all of YOU!  We are excited for more opportunities like these to come out of our connection to SURF Nation.  More information about Surf Select can be found here.
