SRU joins college development group

Santa Rosa United has announced that it has joined the Western College Development Association.

In additiion to California, the WCDA includes teams in Washington, Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and Colorado.

So, why is it significant to area high school players?

Among other things:

– Eight NorCal clubs – Marin FC, De Anza SC, Mustang, San Juan, Placer, Cal Odyssey, Diablo FC and SRU – are involved and that should provide primo competition for local high school players on SRU squads.

– It will increase college recruiting exposure for players.

– It will guarantee acceptance of SRU teams into top tournaments/showcases

All of the teams in WCDA will participate in college showcase events during the year in Las Vegas.
