SEATTLE, WA— (clubs release) Northwest Nationals and FC Alliance are proud to announce that we have signed an affiliation agreement with Surf Soccer Club and we will begin the 2016/2017 competitive year as Greater Seattle Surf Soccer Club.
Our goal has been to combine the strengths of each program, retain the family feeling of both organizations, and through the merger become the top player development club in our region. To accomplish this, we looked at those clubs around the country with a reputation for excellence.
San Diego Surf Soccer Club was an obvious stop along the way. With nine national championships, nearly 150 state and regional titles, and a reputation for developing national level players, Surf is recognized as one of the top clubs in the United States.
In 2012 Surf Soccer Club launched an affiliation program with a simple mission: “To share our knowledge, resources and tools with select partners in order to grow their club into the best club in their local area.”
The Surf Affiliate program provides a number of benefits to our players and families, including:
Cost – There are no fees, per player or otherwise associated with our affiliation with Surf.
Lower Prices on Gear – Players and families will enjoy the benefits of Surf’s enhanced buying power with Nike Inc., as well as greater support through Surf’s uniform vendor Soccer.com.
Coaching Curriculum and Support – Surf’s nationally recognized coaching staff has partnered with Manchester City FC to implement a superior coaching curriculum. Our coaches will have access to these resources and be invited to participate in Surf’s annual coaching summit.
Tournament Support – Surf Cup, hosted by Surf Soccer Club, is the home of the “Best of the Best” and one of the top tournaments in the nation. Surf will utilize its experience and expertise to help us establish and build our own club tournament.
Playing Opportunities – Each year, Surf Soccer will form Surf Select teams from the best players at affiliate clubs and take them to the best tournaments to compete.
With the combined strength of our merged organization and an outstanding partner like Surf Soccer Club, we are uniquely positioned to provide an outstanding experience for our players and their families, and truly be the “Best of the Best.”
