The NEP is excited to announce that Juventud NE (Revere, MA) has officially become our third 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.
Idalia Rodríguez says, "Being able to join the NEP has been our goal since the start of FC Juventud New England. We believe that the league shares the same beliefs as we do when it comes to taking care of the next generation of players and that is why we are looking forward to working closely with the NEP. A big thank you to Adam Scott for being able to give our teams a place to develop and play at a high level."
NEP League Director Adam Scott noted, “The NEP welcomes Juventud NE to our family of clubs. We are thrilled to be able to work with Boris, Idalia and the Juventud NE staff for the 2021-22 season. We are also excited to support the community of Revere, MA and the developing players at Juventud NE. In speaking with Boris and the leadership team at Juventud NE it was clear that the vision that they are seeking for competitive league play aligns with our league goals and organizational structure. The NEP is committed to listening to the feedback and areas of support needed to assist and aid our clubs so that they can best support the players and the communities that they work and reside in. Juventud NE has looked to support their players at every turn as they have grown as a club and we are thrilled to be able to add another layer of support to both their staff and most importantly to their aspiring soccer players. We welcome Juventud NE and can’t wait for their teams to be a part of our Competitive Fall 2021 season.”
