STA is pleased to announce a partnership with Brooklyn-based travel club SC GJØA, remaining the exclusive training partners at the New York club, and developing elite travel teams within the SC GJØA organization.
After being established as a sports club over 100 years ago, SC GJØA has a proud tradition of soccer in New York and is currently one of the largest soccer programs in the area, with over 500 players involved on a yearly basis.
"Our travel teams have been coached by the brilliant SONESOCCER coaches for nearly three years, therefore the partnership with STA was an easy decision," said James Svendsen, SC GJØA Athletic Director. "This agreement allows our elite players the opportunity to play the best teams in Region 1 and I look forward to this partnership growing in the coming years."
"There is such a huge pool of talent in Brooklyn and we feel STA is the perfect extension to the tremendous work already going on GJØA," added STA Director of Coaching Shane Bullock. "By expanding our relationship at SC GJØA, their elite teams will have the opportunity to play in top leagues and tournaments, as well as continuing to receive the best training and coaching possible. This is a fantastic agreement for all involved, but most importantly for the players and families at SC GJØA."
This agreement comes hot on the heels of STA's announcement that it was becoming New Jersey's first-ever PUMA Total Concept Club (TCC), and adds to club partnerships already in place at Morris United, East Brunswick, Jackson SC, and Scotch Plains Fanwood SA.
STA are partners with a number of clubs in New Jersey and New York to provide an elite academy section within their organization and structure, offering talented and committed players in those areas the opportunity to play at the highest level they are capable of. STA teams play in regional and national competitions, and the National Premier League. Players have progressed through our proven training methods and programs to compete at the highest level of High School, College, and Professional soccer, as well as gaining national and international recognition.
Clubs partnered with STA have the opportunity to offer a high quality, proven and competitive opportunity to their more talented and committed players, within – rather than competing with - the partner club.
