Aims of Program:

The aim of the Junior Academy program is to create an environment that allows players to have fun whilst learning the fundamentals of soccer. Our focus is on individual technical development in a fun and safe environment.

What is Surf Junior Academy?

Surf Junior Academy is an exciting program based on what’s best for the players. The player’s individual skill development and enjoyment is at the heart of the program.

All players get professional training from soccer skills guru Coach Mario Mrakovic and his assistants. They get practices throughout the year with small-sided games during the spring and fall seasons.

The players play 4v4 to maximize touches and enjoyment. This is in relation to the USSF small-sided rules and regulations. We also introduce 7v7 soccer for future development.

Why Join Surf Junior Academy?

San Diego Surf is the leader of Youth Soccer in the US, and we start the best training at the youngest ages. All practices and in-house games are at one of the best facilities in San Diego, Surf Cup Sports Park (formerly Polo fields).

This program will enable your child to:

  • Have fun while learning the littlest of nuances of soccer
  • Gain knowledge, love and passion for the game
  • Develop their technical sophistication on the ball like no other
  • Become elegant, confident and poised players for life
  • Attain high soccer awareness and smarts of the game

This program is a low-pressure environment where the individual technical development is the main focus. It will give your player confidence and set them up for an exciting future in soccer!
