Greetings friends, fans, and supporters! As the proverb goes, "may you live in interesting times." Hard to deny it: we are in interesting times. For Real Central NJ Soccer, planning and hope continues with several programs in process, others being quickly planned, and our first team ramping up toward our inaugural season.
LET'S BRAND OUR TEAM TOGETHER
We’re so please that many of you have become our fans on social media and we're hoping to begin the process of asking you for help with the final branding of the club. We’re so excited for this and hope it will be a fun process for everyone. WE WANT YOU INVOLVED! This process will take a few months... and besides helping with the naming, you’ll get some free merchandise! First thing to do, if you haven’t already, is sign up for the mailing list:
Spread the word to your friends and family, too! And, if you haven’t already, follow us on social media (see links below).
TRYOUTS FOR USL ACADEMY CUP
We'll be holding our first round of tryouts for our boys and girls "All-Star" teams for U17 and U13 age groups. The boys will participate in the USL Academy Cup and the girls in local tournaments preparing for future USL sponsored events. See flyer for details.
NEW FALL TEAM
Third, with the NCAA allowing collegiate athletes to play club sports this fall, we're in the process of planning an offering in that space with our first team coaches helping the process. If you know of college players studying and living near Mercer County/Eastern Bucks please let them know. Tell them to follow us on our social media channels and sign up for our mailing list. We'll have more on this program shortly.
FIRST TEAM NEWS
Last but definitely not least - we're continuing to build out our first team operations. We have started to reach out to potential business and community partners. Several of whom are very excited and interesting prospects for us. Our first team coaches have also been reaching out to coaches throughout the area and beyond for the recruitment of players. We have been working multiple angles for partnerships with foreign clubs for potential academy player swaps and trialists.
The efforts of our wonderful team of interns, coaches, and volunteers have done wonders. Keep watching us on social media for minute by minute updates and make sure to tune in to #WatchitREAL! our weekly(ish) live stream where we talk about #Path2Pro with our coaches. interns, and former USL League Two players who are now professionals. See it on Facebook and Twitter. We'll soon be adding more from our women's program!
These are certainly interesting times — and also very exciting. We're thrilled to have you as a part of our journey.
