Sports have played a huge role in my life and I’m thrilled about joining and sharing my energy and experiences with the leadership team at Surf Sports. Surf Sports is the perfect partner for me and my family, and I believe our impact and reach will extend well beyond our local community,” said Brees.

San Diego’s Surf Sports is nationally renowned for professionalism, elite facility & event management, high quality coaching and most importantly a deep commitment to athletic development and life-changing power of sports. Surf Sports has over 1000 local kids in our program and another 15,000 nationwide. Our mission is to create experiences and opportunities for kids and we’re excited to announce our next step towards furthering our goal by partnering with Drew.

“With our shared vision and mutual commitment to youth development, this is a powerful partnership,” said Brian Enge, Surf Sports.

“Drew’s involvement will help continue to grow the Surf brand to be synonymous with opportunities for youth sports development here in San Diego and nationwide. As a Super Bowl Champion, but more importantly as a father, it’s evident that Drew is passionate in the ever-growing future of youth sports and we are honored to have Drew be a part of our team,” added Enge.

Crossfire Challenge Results

PSPL Comes Out on Top at the Crossfire Challenge!

REDMOND – July 17, 2019 - The PSPL had many teams compete in one of the Northwest's largest college showcase tournaments - and walked away with four championships and seven finalists!

This is the best showing of PSPL teams against primarily RCL and ECNL teams in 10 years, underscoring the growth and improvement among our clubs against the more established state association opponents. PSPL teams continue to narrow the competitive gap on the field and continue to surpass the state association leagues in terms of overall growth of competitive soccer in Washington state.  

The Puget Sound Premier League (PSPL) promotes open competition and puts players first across a suite of competitive and development platforms that culminates in our Washington National Premier League (NPL) division winners advancing to either the ENPL or NPL FInals. These national tournaments draw the top youth soccer clubs across the country.

Our clubs are finding success at the local, state and national level. Eastern Washington Surf G03 just won a national title at the NPL Finals and FC Edmonds G05 placed third. The outstanding showing by 11 of our teams at the Crossfire Challenge is just another example of the competitive progress our clubs are making.

REIGN ACADEMY

REIGN ACADEMY ANNOUNCEMENT

Reign Academy joins the PSPL!

SEATTLE – April 12, 2019 - We are excited to welcome the Reign Academy to the Puget Sound Premier League for the 2019-2020 season. 

The Reign Academy is expanding beyond its US Soccer Development Academy Teams to offer Academy Reserves and Reign Pre-Academy teams. The Reign Academy will offer up to 17 teams for young women in the 2001 to 2010 birth-year age groups. 

The Reign Academy has announced it will play all of its Academy Reserves and pre-academy teams in the PSPL, starting in the Fall Season 2019. A potential of 12 Reign Academy teams will be competing for top league honors against our current and growing slate of competitive youth soccer clubs across the state of Washington.

The PSPL is sanctioned by US Club Soccer and offers competitive soccer leagues and tournaments for ages 9U to 19U and beyond. The league represents top clubs throughout Washington state and Northern Idaho and has been the fastest growing youth soccer league in the state. Since its inception more than ten years ago, the league now boasts more than 2,000 teams, nearly 70 clubs and more than 40,000 players. 

The PSPL is a designated US Club NPL League, which is the fastest growing national league platform in the country. The NPL national tournament brings together top clubs from around the country to determine national league champions. 

Reign Academy officials say Reserve teams will offer top players a DA-level training environment, but with more flexibility and a reduced time commitment. Reserve teams will compete in the 2003/2004, 2005, and 2006 age brackets. Reserve teams will compete in the PSPL, she said. Reign Academy Reserves players can be called up as Developmental Players to the DA teams, while players retain the opportunity to play with their high school teams.  

Reign Pre-Academy will offer emerging-elite players in the 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 age brackets a defined pathway to the DA and Reserves teams, Sittauer explained. Like the Reserves, Reign officials said, Pre-Academy teams will play in the PSPL. Reign will work closely with the league to place teams in age groups and divisions based on competitive levels.  

Reign Academy operates five teams in the U.S. Girls' Development Academy—the highest level of female youth soccer in the United States. DA teams offer comprehensive, focused, and intense training environments that are designed to develop elite-level players to their fullest potential, preparing them for D1 colleges, professional playing careers, and international soccer.  Reign Academy DA teams will train four times per week, with two trainings located on the east side and two trainings located in Seattle. Our Reign DA programs are closely aligned with the Reign FC first team. Reign DA players will receive a season ticket for the Reign FC home games and will have the opportunity to be coached by Reign FC players.

Shawn played for the Seattle Sounders A-League team between 2002 and 2004, reaching the National Finals in 2004.

 

He ended his professional playing career with the Sonoma County Sol in the National Premier Soccer League, a fourth-division semi-pro league in the United States. He led the team to national semifinals in 2007 and 2008 and captured a national championship in 2009. The team also reached the second round of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup twice – 2009 and 2010.

 

Shawn is married and is raising three boys with his wife, Shannon, who is the athletic director for Green River College. Shawn also earned an MBA from Sonoma State University and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing, from Santa Clara University.
