Intense Soccer Academy, which already has its girls teams competing in the league, will now also bring its U-13 through U-18 boys teams to the NYCSL. “We pride ourselves on the professionalism of our staff and competitiveness of our teams,” Ron Alber, Intense Soccer Academy Director of Coaching, said. “We hope to add value to the competitive landscape of the NYCSL and NPL.”
Match Fit Academy FC is preparing to add girls teams to the NYCSL in 2015-16. “The Northeast Girls NPL and now the NYCSL will provide our players with the best competition and showcase opportunities for our players,” Dominick Bucci, Director of Coaching at Match Fit Academy FC, said. “I believe our club will be able to help the NYCSL grow and continue to be one of the best leagues in the country.”
The NJ Stallions will bring its U-13 through U-18 girls teams to the league. “I believe the NJ Stallions will add to the high level of competition that the NYCSL already has and further establish the league as one of the most competitive NPLs in the country,” Shaun Cryer, Director of Coaching at NJ Stallions, said. “We are always striving for top competition each week, and we feel the NYCSL offers that opportunity better than anywhere else. The league has tremendous stability and infrastructure, where true soccer people have a big influence in how the league is run. There is great integrity in the league structure, and we are proud to be a part of it moving forward.”
Princeton Soccer Association prepares to add its girls teams to the NYCSL to unify the club, as its boys teams have been a part of the league for the past two seasons. “The structure of the league, its organization, scheduling format and club DOC input make the league very attractive for our club,” John Newman, Director of Coaching at Princeton Soccer Association, said. “Add to that the league’s vision to continue adding top girls programs and be the standout league in the tristate area, and there was no question of wanting to be anywhere else. The relationship between the NYCSL and New England Premier League NPLs, and the addition of the Regional Crossover Cup now enables some of the best teams in the Northeast to play for an additional berth to the NPL Finals, while being exposed to many college coaches and scouts.”
