The San Francisco Elite Academy sent 7 teams to this year's premier national showcase, the Surf College Cup Showcase, and several made a statement about the quality of their team, players and coaches with terrific performances.
Leading the way was the 2001 Boys, which recently qualified for the spring NPL Champions League. The 2001 Boys won two matches and tied one at Surf, meaning they finished first in their group of six teams. During the showcase, seven different players claimed goals and the 2001 boys scored 9 goals over their three matches. Also, doing well in San Diego were the 99/00 Boys and 2002 Girls. Both teams finished third in their groups. The 99/00 boys went 1-1-1 to finish third among six teams, and the 2002 Girls went 2-1 to finish third among eight teams.
Best of all, each of SFEA's seven participating teams (99/00, 01, and 02 Boys, and 01, 02, 03, 04 Girls) got to play in a pristine playing setting that included over 500 participating college coaches. College coaches were regular fixtures along the sidelines of SFEA games and were introduced to SFEA players with team rosters with player information. Congratulations to all our SFEA teams for what was yet another good year at Surf College Cup.
The San Francisco Elite Academy is proud to announce that the 99/00 Boys NPL, 01 Boys NPL, 02 Boys NPL, and the 01 Girls NPL, 02 Girls NPL, 03 Girls NPL, and 04 Girls NPL all have been selected to attend one of the nation's most coveted soccer showcases--the 2017 Surf College Cup Showcase. This marks the second year running that SFEA has sent multiple teams to compete against some of the best players in the nation. Held over Thanksgiving weekend at two premier field facilities in San Diego, the Surf College Showcase is considered one of the two premier national showcases for youth soccer players and only accepts approximately 1 in 3 teams that apply. Typically, over 500 college coaches attend the event to scout youth soccer talent who play three games over a three-day period against some of the top soccer clubs in the country (see the graphic below). Congratulations to these seven teams and we hope they both enjoy and take advantage of this unique opportunity to compete against the "Best of the Best," which is a cornerstone of what makes the San Francisco Elite Academy unique in San Francisco.
