Rutgers Prep to Serve as Official Training Facility of Team
Somerset, N.J. (Wednesday, November 18, 2009) – 2009 Women’s Professional Soccer Champion Sky Blue FC announced today that the team will train at Rutgers Preparatory School next season. The facilities, which are located in Somerset, New Jersey, are only miles from the home of Sky Blue FC at Yurcak Field on the campus of Rutgers University.
“Sky Blue FC is proud to partner with Rutgers Prep, a world class facility for a world class team,” Sky Blue FC General Manager Gerry Marrone commented. “We are most excited to be able to utilize the full services of this renowned academic and athletic institution. We also look forward to supporting Argonaut Athletics in any way we can.”
Rutgers Preparatory School is the oldest independent school in the State of New Jersey and was founded in 1766 under the same charter as Rutgers University. The Argonauts also boast an accomplished girl’s soccer program and were winners of the state championship for five consecutive years from 2004-08 (co-winners in 2006). The institution has a turf field facility for soccer, and Sky Blue FC will conduct its training at the location on a daily basis starting next spring.
