The Young Olympians Program, designed specifically for players born in 2004, is the next step for players preparing for the NJ Youth Soccer ODP. Players will be selected for the multi-session program after two initial tryout sessions. The Young Olympians program will focus on improving the player’s technical ability and tactical awareness while exposing players and parents to a US Youth Soccer and NJYS ODP environment.
Since partnering with the Red Bulls in 2014, this program has also identified players for the Red Bulls’ Academy. Club NJYS (boys and girls, birth year 2005): Register HERE. Young Olympians: (boys and girls, birth year 2005): Register HERE.
While the programs are customized for each age group, both Club NJYS and the Young Olympians Program includes training sessions and a festival featuring small-sided games. Pre-registration is required. For locations, schedules and fees, visit NJYouthSoccer.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (609) 490-0725.
