Welcome to the Athletics-Mercado Academy 

We are very excited to get the new season started. David Mercado and Brian Tidd have partnered with some amazing sponsors this season. Because of this we have changed our team name from the So Cal Athletics to Athletics-Mercado. Mercado and Tidd have branched off to start this amazing new organization. An organization with winning traditions.                                                                                                          

3 time PGF National Champions in the past 4 years.                           

This Academy is based in Murrieta Ca, and is a National Powerhouse of Elite Athletes that reside in Southern California.  We develop our players to work harder, play smarter and Win Championships, this is who we are.
