South Valley’s Board of Directors is proud to announce that we will represent the Surf brand as South Valley Surf, an affiliate of LA Surf. This is a partnership we began earlier this summer with excellent results for numerous South Valley players who have had opportunities to augment their practice schedules and to play in Boys’ ECNL and in girls’ Development Academy matches with LA Surf. In addition to these player opportunities our affiliation will also provide additional top-level league and college showcase opportunities for South Valley Surf teams. (Press Release Attached)
Surf’s UP in the valley!!!
