Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) officially announced today that Watchung Hills Soccer Association (WHSA) has been added as a club partner for the 2016 NWSL season.
“We are very pleased to add Watchung Hills Soccer Association as a club partner,” said Tony Novo, Sky Blue FC President & General Manager. “I had the privilege of being associated with their club for a number of years as both a parent and coach, and I saw my daughters develop through their organization from a very young age. It is great to see everything come full circle with them and have them as a member of our club partner program.”
Last year, WHSA introduced NJ Elite, which is its premier development soccer program. NJ Elite teams compete at the highest levels of the Eastern Development Program (EDP) and participate in highly competitive tournaments throughout the region. The program operates under a carefully designed training curriculum that is developed by Jordi Meijer, Director of Coaching, with practice sessions and games coached by the Dutch Total Soccer (DTS) staff of Somerset, N.J.
“WHSA is thrilled to partner with Sky Blue FC this year!” Meijer remarked. “We are very proud of the results our NJ Elite program achieved during its inaugural year. As an organization, we are committed to continuing to develop this new program with the goal of inspiring greater participation and enthusiasm. We are excited to bring a large group to cheer on Sky Blue FC at the team’s home game on Saturday, June 11th!”
