Alamo Families,

We are all living in a moment of uncertainty but none of us are uncertain about our dedication to our game, our team, and our club. The competition may be taking some time off but we are using this as a time to improve our individual players using all the means available to us.

As we continue to monitor COVID-19 in our community we would like to announce that our tentative plan is to re-open in-person training on Monday, April 20th to align with the Mayor’s guidance - in the meantime we're committed to keeping our players, fit, sharp, & growing!

As you know, the club is transitioning to our new partnership with Surf Cup Sports and rebranding to San Antonio Surf SC starting with tryouts at the end of May.  Over the next two months you will notice our website being updated to include our new branding, programs, and content.  Our social media content will continue on both Alamo and Surf platforms as we get closer to tryouts and once our programs are rebranded, we will phase out the Alamo City sites.  

During This Time Our Club Is Also Excited to Offer the Following:

 

Monday’s, every one of our teams will be given a specific off-site development training plan - designed for backyard or garage spaces.

Wednesday’s, coaches will share content aimed at Individual Player Education in the realms of Growth Mindset, Team Psychology, or Tactical education.

Friday’s, will be Live with Louis. Coach Louis Hunt is a San Diego Surf 06 DA & DPL Head Coach along with being the Director for Goalkeeping and current US Soccer Youth National Team Coach. Louis will be doing a podcast each week interviewing Surf partners, coaches, current and former Surf players along with professional players to help give his audience a picture of what being part of Surf Nation is all about.  We will be sharing the links to his podcasts via our social media platforms each Friday.

 

We are also launching TopTekkers! a player development app that connects coaches, players, and parents. Surf has partnered with TopTekkers (https://www.toptekkers.club/) to improve the individual development process of our players and aims to coincide with Surf curriculum and individual development plans. 

Surf Soccer Club is honored to be the development partner working in conjunction with The Coaching Manual to build and test this product with our teams over the last 6 months. We can't wait to get our players on this innovative and incredible app!

Through our partnership our players will receive a 60% discount if they sign up.  As we receive our custom links for the program, we will email them out to all of you.

 

We have also partnered with The Performance Republic to provide a FREE mobility/soccer physical performance program.  Use the link provided (via email) to sign up and you will receive an email with access to the Mobility Program's private YouTube channel. You will also receive soccer specific workouts for your athlete 3-4 times a week via email from Dr. Aaron Stares and The Performance Republic. 

 

We will continue to keep our kids and families engaged!  We have already started having some fun through social media and the #StayAtHomeChallenge, and have a number of other ideas/games/contests ready to go.  In addition, we have created a San Antonio Surf SC YouTube channel that we will use to provide training content, staff interviews, best practices, live streaming of games and events, and much more.  We are devoted to sending out frequent content to our families on how to stay focused and keep training during this time - articles, podcasts, competitions - you name it! 

Our Coaches will continue to hone their skills and use this time to focus on coaching education and our Surf development curriculum.

We can't wait to get back onto the fields, but in the meantime our training's will continue so that our teams will be ready to take the field when called upon!  Please be smart and safe as we navigate this pandemic as your health and the health of our loved ones is truly what matters.  We want to see all of our Alamo/Surf family back on the fields safe and sound.

 

Stay safe & healthy,

Alamo City SC Staff
