The NEP is proud to announce that Cambridge Youth Soccer (Cambridge, MA) has officially become our first Associate Member Club for the 2021-22 season. Our Associate Member Club Initiative, announced in the Spring of 2021, looks to work with the leadership teams of applying and accepted clubs to provide support, guidance, education and a first-in-class competitive environment for their players, coaches and families. The Initiative will allow applying and accepted clubs the opportunity to play in the NEP in appropriately placed competitive brackets.
“Cambridge Youth Soccer is very excited to be joining the NEP. Our new program provides every player in Cambridge a City League experience and for those of our ~1400 players who also want a higher level of competition, we are excited to be offering the opportunity to play against some of the best clubs in the area. We look forward to working with NEP and the member clubs of this great league” noted Jason Targoff, President of Cambridge Youth Soccer.
NEP League Director Adam Scott noted, “The NEP welcomes Cambridge Youth Soccer to our family of member clubs. We are thrilled to have the chance to work with Jason, his coaching staff and most importantly the players at CYS. We as a league are committed to working with communities like Cambridge and organizations like CYS to support their continuing efforts to provide soccer programming to local players and families. Our goal is to support those efforts through coach education, collaboration and a fun and competitive environment for their teams and players. We believe it is our responsibility as a league in our region to continue to find ways to increase accessibility to soccer experiences in urban communities, so we cannot wait to see what the future holds for CYS! We are excited to begin our efforts in the coming weeks as we prepare for our Competitive Fall 2021 season.”
