SAN JOSE SURF at RIVER ISLANDS dba “RIVER ISLANDS SURF”
River Islands FC has partnered with San Jose Surf and will become San Jose Surf at River Islands, dba “River Islands Surf” for the purposes of providing a framework to grow the club and compete on an elite level. We believe the Central Valley youth soccer community is looking for something different and River Islands Surf is set out to fill that need by offering our member families a unique club experience with superior technical training for our players.
RIVER ISLANDS FC
River Islands FC (RIFC) began in 2017 as a result of the efforts of a group of local leaders with a desire to bring affordable competitive soccer to the Central Valley. Due to the enormous growth of both the population in Lathrop / Manteca and the popularity of soccer nationwide, RIFC continued to grow and joined NorCal Premier in 2020. In March 2021, River Islands FC partnered with San Jose Surf as San Jose Surf at River Islands “River Islands Surf”.
River Islands Surf (established in 2017) is a 501 3(c) non-profit organization dedicated to the development, improvement, and enhancement of youth soccer players.
Through our extensive programming, qualified coaching staff, and dedication to year-round soccer training and games we provide the best experience for every player.
WHO IS SURF?
The oldest competitive youth soccer club in San Diego, San Diego Surf Soccer Club was established in 1977 to draw the best players from the surrounding areas of Carlsbad, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Leucadia, Solana Beach and Del Mar to form teams to compete against the best teams in southern California. Surf Soccer Club’s overall competitive vision and organizational focus has remained largely unchanged, as 30+ years later the Club continues to field teams who compete at the highest levels locally, regionally and nationally.
