New Jersey Youth Soccer officially announced that it has entered a community partnership with Rutgers Women’s Soccer. The partnership will focus on the growth of soccer throughout the state, and the two groups will also work together on a variety of community initiatives.

“NJ Youth Soccer is thrilled to announce our community partnership with Rutgers University,” said Evelyn Gill, NJYS President. “Rutgers has a tremendous history producing great soccer players while educating students to succeed in life. We look forward to supporting the women’s soccer team’s development on and off the field.”

Through this relationship, NJ Youth Soccer and Rutgers Women’s Soccer will collaborate on various promotional opportunities. One such activity will be a Champions Night, where Rutgers will celebrate NJYS State Cups champions as part of a home match at Yurcak Field. Rutgers will also host an NJYS Night during its season, where NJYS players throughout the state will be invited to attend a home game that will include unique matchday experiences.

“The State of New Jersey has always had such a rich tradition of talented soccer players,” said Mike O’Neill, Rutgers Women’s Soccer head coach and NJYS Hall of Famer. “New Jersey Youth Soccer has done a tremendous job of providing the foundation for young soccer players, both on and off the field. As the State University of New Jersey, we take great pride in the tradition and culture of soccer within the state. We are so excited for this partnership and look forward to working together with NJYS to continue to grow the game. “

The partnership with Rutgers Women’s Soccer will also expand into community outreach initiatives such as NJYS State Cups, NJYS Recreation Festivals and TOPSoccer, a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. Further, the two groups will explore promotional opportunities during Youth Soccer Month in September. Additional areas of support will include the NJYS Olympic Development Program (ODP) as well as coaching education opportunities for Rutgers players.
