Overview - The Murrieta Surf College Bound Program provides our high school age players and parents with a comprehensive guide to the college process. This process can be overwhelming and the objective of the College Bound Program is to provide fact-based information related to recruiting, eligibility, scholarship and managing the cost of a college education. The Murrieta Surf staff offers expert guidance and support but will not do those tasks the player and parents can and must do for themselves. Success in this process requires accountability, diligence, commitment and a true passion for the game.
