Everything You Need Know
ECNL TEAM TRAVEL
Bay Area Surf has been recognized by US Soccer for excellence as one of the nation's leading girl’s programs developing female athletes both on and off the field. Our program has produced numerous national team players, won multiple National Championships, year after year placed student-athletes in power five conferences, and has created a top-notch travel program that helps players prepare to be young adults. Our travel program helps our athletes develop independence and self-reliance by teaching them how to prepare for competitions, recover after matches, manage time and schoolwork, get proper sleep, value friendships, balance nutritional needs, and much more.
Bay Area Surf team travel is for the U14 age group and older. Since our program has a vast amount of players that participate in US and other YNT programs, it is critical for our players to understand the importance of team travel by this age to ensure they are prepared and ready when called into these environments.
Team travel has many advantages for both players individually and teams as a whole. Team bonding and experiences on trips is priceless, becoming some of the fondest memories players will have from their days in youth soccer. Meeting new people, experiencing new cultures, and overcoming new challenges in a new place is always a great learning process for players. Our most successful teams started traveling as a team early on and now, as young adults, they talk about how these trips are some of the most memorable and how they tremendously helped them prepare for many different aspects of life and soccer.
WANT TO VOLUNTEER?
We are always in search of volunteers to keep our teams and club operating smoothly. We have all different types of volunteer needs.
We need support in many ways when we are traveling too - not just chaperones. For parents coming to an event and have the ability to help, here are just a few ways you can:
Organizing special events (College days, BBQ, Socials, Dinners, etc.)
Water or Ice runs
Coffee to keep the chaperones going...
