MURRIETA, CA (7th June, 2021) – Murrieta Surf is proud to announce the invitation into the Girls Academy (GA) beginning for the 2021-22 season. It is both an honor and a privilege for Murrieta Surf to join the very best clubs from around the nation and participate in the leading youth development platform for the best female soccer players in the United States.
Murrieta Surf has worked hard over the years in our Girls program and is proud to be able to offer the Girls Academy (GA) as the highest nationally recognized development platform to our female players and become a proud part of an organization whose mission so closely aligns with the very foundation of our club. We are excited to embrace and uphold the Girls Academy vision statement. “We believe through collaboration that dreams can come true”.
The news of our invitation into the Girls Academy (GA) comes off the back of our acceptance into the Development Players League (DPL) early this year. We are now able to fully align the player development pathway for female players in the club to compete in the most competitive and the leading league for the best female soccer players in the country.
The Girls Academy (GA) is a National League with 8 conferences and 81 clubs. Murrieta Surf will compete in the Southwest Conference and field teams at the U13, U14, U15, U16, U17 and U19 age groups from the 2021-22 Season.
The efforts to elevate Murrieta Surf into the GA was spearheaded by our Technical Director Steve Myles, and Girls Olders Director David Parker who are delighted that the dedicated efforts of all our girls’ coaches have been rewarded by giving our players the very highest national platform they aspire to play in without having to leave the valley.
“Our club has always been focused on bringing the valley the highest elite levels of play in the USA to both the boys and girls program. We are proud that MLSNEXT is already a part of our boy’s program. Today though, I am extremely excited and proud to say to ALL the elite female players, YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO TRAVEL OUTSIDE THE VALLEY TO PLAY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN THE COUNTRY. I am both delighted and honored that the club has been invited to join the prestigious Girls Academy League. I would like to thank everyone who has helped drive and improve our girl’s program over the past few years, especially our current girl’s coaches. A special thank you to our older girls DOC David Parker, who has played a major part in helping to secure this opportunity, and the same to our younger girls DOC Hector García, who has built a solid foundation at the entry-level for our girl’s program. These are exciting times and I want to assure all our members that as a club, we will not rest, and we will not stop working hard to continually improve ALL areas of our organization, both on and off the field.” Steve Myles
