COACHING

Q: What caliber coaching will you have?

A: When hiring our coaching staff, NY Surf looks for both accomplished and top certified coaches with playing pedigrees and previous coaching experience at the International, US National Team, Professional, Collegiate, or national premier levels. NY Surf has more USSF “A” and “B” licensed and Division I and II coaches on our staff than any other metro NY-based youth soccer club.

 Q: What coaching curriculum do you use?

A: We use a proven, customized curriculum developed in partnership between San Diego Surf Soccer Club and Manchester City FC. This curriculum is built upon our philosophy to progressively and systematically develop our players from U8- U18.  During each step of their developmental journey, NY Surf SC members will benefit from locally and nationally recognized coaches with the specific strengths and skills needed to effectively implement the curriculum.

FINANCIAL

 Q: What are the tuition prices for the 2017-18 Season?

A: As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, NY Surf strives to prove the highest quality youth soccer experience at the most affordable price.
