Introducing SRU Alliance

Santa Rosa South's Competitive Program gets a new name! Looking to experience SRU's professional coaching but don't want to commit to year-round soccer? SRU Alliance is perfect for you!!

Both clubs have been working closely together over the past 3 years, with SRU helping SRS with competitive & recreation coach education, running the SRS U8 Academy, and by providing professional trainers to work with SRS’s competitive teams & volunteer coaches to raise the quality of the practices & performance.  Last season was successful in the joining of the two programs and look forward to our next season in 2018 and 2019.

Current SRS coaches & board members, Matt Byrne & Jim LaFrance, will be the SRU Alliance Program Co-orindators, while the on-field soccer direction will come from SRU’s Directors of Coaching, Andrew Ziemer, Ralph Montes & Lee Summerscales.

Matt Byrne, SRS Board Member/SRU Board Member & SRU Alliance Program Coordinator  - “This is all about improving the playing experience for our kids, and giving them the skills to stay playing & enjoying soccer for longer. SRS players & coaches have had a very positive experience over the last 2 years working with SRU’s coaches, and we knew that an official collaboration would be a great way for SRS to give more to our families, as both clubs share the same philosophy when it comes to teaching the younger kids. A key part of this was retaining the identity of the current SRS program - low costs & commitment levels, shorter season lengths, local travel, the freedom to play multiple sports, and community-based coaches & board members. SRS members can be assured that this will not change, and the only difference will be that our kids & teams will be getting better on the field."

Tryouts for SRU Alliance will run May 19-23. Please contact Program Coordinators, Matt Byrne ( & Jim LaFrance ( if you have any questions.
