Latest Global Premier Soccer franchise to bolster leading girl’s premier club in southern New Jersey
Jersey Premier Soccer (JPS) and AC Premier Soccer Club (ACP) are excited to announce a partnership that has been established to enhance the player development opportunities for players in southern New Jersey and mutually benefit the programs and goals of both organizations.
JPS has become the latest addition to the Global Premier Soccer (GPS) network that includes franchises in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, Florida, Vermont and Rhode Island. JPS will work alongside the current staff of AC Premier to further establish the club as the leading girl’s premier club in south Jersey.
“ACP is already established as a leader in girls soccer within southern New Jersey,” said JPS General Manger Neil Holloway. “By combining resources and becoming part of a bigger network with GPS we will create new opportunities for ACP players and indeed all players within southern New Jersey, specifically in the Atlantic and Cape May counties territory.”
JPS has been created via a partnership with Ocean City FC, one of the leading player development programs in southern New Jersey. Ocean City FC and ACP had a working relationship through Ocean City’s Super Y-League programming, and the JPS/ACP relationship was a natural progression.
“ACP brings an established premier girls program to the partnership. GPS’s partnerships with adidas® and US Club soccer plus the club administrative support that JPS offers attracted ACP to the partnership,” said ACP General Manager Pat Madamba. “The partnership will undoubtedly create additional opportunities on a regional and national level for the girls in our program and ensure the continued success of ACP’s program for years to come,” said Madamba.
JPS/ACP will be holding tryouts for year-round girl’s premier teams through JPS Junior Premier and Premier programs in southern New Jersey. Tryouts will take place at the end of the spring.
“We are excited to have formed a relationship with ACP. We will provide players and families in southern New Jersey a tried and tested player development model that has produced regional and national caliber youth players and teams throughout the GPS network,” said Holloway. “We look forward to providing a pathway to the collegiate level for our players as JPS becomes the Premier club in southern New Jersey."
