San Diego Surf Cup showcase weekends postponed due to NCAA Division I recruiting ban
The San Diego Surf Cup Olders events have been postponed, after the NCAA Division I in-person recruiting ban was extended through August.
With NCAA Division I coaches being unable to attend, Surf Cup Sports announced that the Older Boys (August 1-3) and Older Girls (August 7-9) events will be held at a later time. Specific dates for the re-scheduled events have yet to be determined.
“Given the NCAA announcement yesterday to extend the recruiting dark period through August, we feel it is best to pause and give ourselves a few days to think through our path forward,” Surf Cup Sports stated. “Surf Cup will happen in 2020, but we’re going to take a few days to talk to our most important customers – college coaches and college recruits – to understand how to best serve their needs in 2020.”
The two younger weekends for Surf Cup have not been affected, and will still be played as scheduled over the weekends of August 15-16 and August 22-23.
New dates for the Older Weekends are expected to be announced on Tuesday, June 30.
