Orange County Surf Soccer Club is proud to be Orange County’s premier competitive soccer club.  Founded in 1977 as West Coast Futbol Club, in 2018 the club rebranded, partnering with Surf Cup Sports as Orange County Surf.  This created a true regional powerhouse alongside our sister clubs, San Diego Surf and LA Surf, opening the door to incredible additional opportunities and experiences for our players.  We are a member of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy (DA) for girls and boys, the Boys’ ECNL, and the girls’ Development Players League (DPL). These leagues represent the highest level of youth soccer competition in the United States today, with the goal of producing the next generation of U.S. National team players. Orange County Surf has produced 5 National Championships, 14 Regional Championships, many State Champions, hundreds of college scholarship athletes, over 25 National team players, and multiple male and female professional players.

Club Philosophy

OC Surf provides a world-class, holistic training environment and pathway for any player or team striving for excellence.  Our club philosophy at Orange County Surf is to develop our youth players to their fullest potential.  We are committed to teaching players by providing a well-trained and highly licensed professional staff who also strive to continually upgrade their own coaching education. We create a superior training environment through positive coaching with a focus on technical excellence.  This will help our players navigate the challenges that the game will always bring in a way where they feel confident, competent, and successful.

Player Philosophy

We aim to develop our players’ leadership, integrity, and teamwork in all they do.  Our goal is to have all of our players develop technical expertise, tactical awareness and respect for the game and their opponents as they progress over the years through our program.   We want our players to graduate our program with self-confidence, the ability to problem-solve, have a strong sense of competition, and develop a lifelong love of the game.
