STA is the preeminent soccer club in Northern New Jersey. Now with an added location in Mount Olive, NJ. We continue to provide an opportunity for the most talented and committed players from throughout the state, to play at the highest level of which they are capable.
Our teams compete at both the localized (in state) and regionalized levels of the EDP framework, regionally within US Club Soccer’s National Premier League (NPL) and nationally within the highest arm of US Youth Soccer, the National League (NL). Beyond this, teams regularly attend the most prestigious tournaments in the country (Jefferson Cup, Potomac, Bethesda) and as a result, our oldest players showcase themselves in front of hundreds of prospective College Coaches each year.
Coached by the largest single venue complement of full-time professional staff in the state, all STA teams follow a developmentally appropriate, thematically oriented annual curriculum. This curriculum drives the players learning, development and supports our players in the attainment of the skills and understanding necessary to implement our Game Model.
Our new Mount Olive Location is managed by our two Directors of Coaching, both of which hold UEFA A Coaching Licenses. Both have experience of working in college and high school levels and within some of the country’s best Talent Development Systems (US Soccer ODP, ). Our STA staff is one of the finest and most well educated (UEFA, USSF, USC, KNVB & FA certifications) in the State.
The result of this commitment to best practice and quality competition, has been the graduation of a number of players in the last 6 years, to play NCAA College Soccer. We are incredibly proud of our players’ abilities to continue with both their athletic and academic journeys after life at STA and look forward to supporting hundreds more prospective student athletes (PSA’s) on their journeys in the years to come.
While the standards, commitment and approach to life necessary to be a success at STA is not for everyone, we would welcome those who believe they have the requisite Skills, Talent and Attitude to reach out and arrange an opportunity to be assessed by our professional staff.
