Extra Elite 100 Club Coach Rankings: 

T-20 (23)—Scott Berndes (Power Surge)
Coach Berndes has led his San Diego-based Power Surge team for five seasons now and overall in his career has 21 years of coaching experience. You know you’re doing well when he says” “We finished 3rd in Colorado which was very good and 9th at PGF which was a disappointment.” That, because of the strong success historically for the program which includes ASA National Championships in 2009 and 2012 and no less than 13 other Top 10 finishes in nationals including PGF where the Surge took 2nd two years ago at 12U and finished 5th back-to-back years in 2016 and 2017 at PGF 10U Nationals. The current team, like teams of the past, have schools such as UCLA, Oklahoma, Duke, Arizona State and others following closely but that’s not unusual as Coach Berndes has placed 128 players in colleges over the years. “I’m proud that so many have gone on to the UCLAs and Harvards and are now doctors, lawyers and coaches,” he explains. “As for my coaching career, it is placing my many players with mostly free educations so they can move on to become great members of their communities.” On a personal note, compliments to the coach for being a great son who also is the sole caretake and provider for his mother who is 106 years old. “I am no young’un anymore,” he laughs, “she lived through two pandemics in 1918 and 2020, wore cardboard shoes to school during the depression of 1928 as they could not afford better and saw the invention of television, color television, World War I, World War II and on and on. She is doing great and we’re looking forward to celebrating her 107th birthday in 2022

About Power Surge


The Power Surge Organization offers many great things for those interested in a high level of softball. We are the oldest Travel Softball Organization in San Diego having started in 1992 which means stability. We are also the only Travel Softball Organization that has its own fields. 

We have four fields, four batting cages all lighted, six practice pitching mounds all lighted. We have picnic areas and a beautiful bathroom facility. We offer Pitching lessons, Hitting lessons, Fielding lessons, and Catching lessons on our facility as well. We recommend that all the girls take part in these lessons to get better as players. 

As for our players and moving to the next level of college softball our Power Surge Organization has placed dozens and dozens of girls in college with College Scholarships. From UCLA to Harvard and producing doctors and lawyers to school teachers and engineers. Power Surge is a great way to play hard and be seen by college recruiters at all the top College Showcase tournaments.

Finally, always represent Power Surge with class. Play the game fair and as parents support your daughters always in the positive. Cheer for our team and never be disrespectful of the other team. Treat all teams with class.

Thanks all, and good luck. I will see you all on the fields.
