Central Valley Surf Soccer Club has announced a strategic partnership with River Islands Football Club. 

“As we take our next step in the growth of soccer in-and-around our community, we are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to partner with the River Islands FC ,” said Benjamin Gonzalez, Central Valley Surf President. “In a very short amount of time, River Islands FC has demonstrated a commitment to developing the Valley’s Grassroots soccer community. With River Islands FC, we know they share the same philosophy for player development. Both sides have spent the last 6 months working together to ensure success both on and off the field”.

“This partnership between River Islands Football Club and Central Valley Surf will prove to be a great step in developing the next generation of elite youth soccer players in the area.” said River Islands FC President Isidro Garcia. “The phrase ‘youth development’ is often used by clubs to describe an aspect of their program, but true player development requires a nurturing, patient environment that also provides motivation for players to improve. We can’t wait show our families and the community what a top development program looks like, something we feel has been lacking in our region” 

This partnership will provide Central Valley Surf with a complete club-development program. Benefits will include; Surf coaching staff dedicated to RIFC, curriculum access, player clinics, team training, coach education workshops, and training camps.
