Over 250 players participate in Santa Cruz Mid-County’s competitive soccer program, known as Santa Cruz Mid-County Surf. Our competitive teams are for boys and girls ages 7 to 19 who show heightened interest, dedication and ability to play soccer. Comp players should demonstrate a passion to play the game of soccer at an advanced level and a focus and willingness to always improve and develop their skills.
Our competitive teams play in the California Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) Cal North District 2 league (CCSL) cysadistrict2.org. Teams participate in tournaments throughout northern California and sometimes venture out and play in more statewide events. Comp teams also participate in League play consisting of a 10-game season from early September to the end of November. Most comp teams begin practicing in mid-July to early August, but it is not uncommon for Surf teams to play in Summer tournaments. It is up to each individual coach to determine their own practice and tournament schedule. Some comp teams play in the Spring League as well as the Fall.
Surf teams compete in all competitive divisions including Copper, Bronze, Silver and Gold Elite for their age group.
The club relies on volunteers to coach its competitive teams. All Comp coaches must possess a minimum United States Soccer Federation (USSF) Class E License. For more information see the Coaches section below.
As required by California Youth Soccer Association Cal North calnorth.org, all Santa Cruz Mid-County Surf coaches hold a minimum USSF (United States Soccer Federation) National E License. This is an 18-hour course, including both field and classroom training. All coaches must pass a final exam to complete the course and receive their license. The club's parent organization, Santa Cruz County Youth Soccer League (SCCYSL), sponsors all coaching courses.
