Since our creation in 2005, STA has grown into one of the country's foremost leaders in youth development consistently playing home to both players and teams who have been successful at the State, Regional and National level. Our WPSL mission is to provide a meaningful and competitive development platform for players when they graduate out of the youth soccer program and into the Collegiate platform. First and foremost, we want to give players who have played and been developed at STA a place to train and play during their collegiate years subsequently sustaining their relationship with our program. In addition, we will bolster our roster with the support of other high quality domestic and international collegiate players that will aid us in further developing the Women's game within New Jersey. To have this opportunity sit at the top of the pyramid of our youth program will help show all our young players they have something to strive for while enhancing our ability to grow the love of the game for young girls. 

STA has developed multiple players who have been called up in the YNT pathway and graduated over 120+ players who have gone on to play at the collegiate level including power schools like Penn State, Indiana, and UNC as well as Yale, Mounmouth, VCU, FDU and many others.

LOGISTICS

Many initial roster spots will be selected through the upcoming tryout/training sessions which can be found above. Once you complete the tryout form you will receive an email with further details. We encourage all players to attend as many of the sessions as possible so that the technical staff can evaluate you fully.

Prior to attending we request that all players not currently on a STA team (including all ALUMNI and past U20/23 team members) complete the online tryout form, so we can keep you up to date on all information and so that we have the most accurate contact information for you. This evaluation form is mandatory for all prospective candidates to fill out prior to the tryout. 

Finally, if you have any collegiate friends who have played at a high level and would be good candidates for our team, please have them fill out an evaluation form. We hope to see you at our upcoming tryout sessions. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to email us at tomshields@stasoccer.org
