Ocean City FC to join forces with Global Premier Soccer to launch Jersey Premier Soccer
JPS to expand and enhance Ocean City FC’s current programs, teams and partnerships
Jersey Premier Soccer (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.
Jersey Premier Soccer has been created in partnership with Ocean City FC, one of the leading player development programs in southern New Jersey. Ocean City also operate one of the leading USL Premier Development League (PDL) franchises in the country, the Ocean City Nor’easters.
Expanding and enhancing Ocean City FC’s current programs, JPS will offer a wide range of soccer products and services and will introduce the School Of Excellence Program to townships with a view to creating an improved player development environment in New Jersey primarily via curriculum, coach education and year round coaching from professional coaches.
“As well as a unique club system, methodology and support network, JPS will bring a curriculum that has developed national team players and a culture that brings townships and clubs together,” said Jersey Premier Soccer General Manager Neil Holloway. “JPS will strive to create more opportunities for players and help players fulfill their potential.”
With headquarters in Ocean City, JPS will work with existing townships and clubs to launch year round premier teams with tryouts taking place at the end of the spring. “JPS 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 and professional level for our players as JPS becomes the Premier club in southern New Jersey and beyond.”
Two prominent local coaches based in central New Jersey have also joined JPS. Martin Punt and Christy Holly are well recognized in central New Jersey as two of the leading youth trainers and will facilitate JPS establishing a presence throughout central and northern New Jersey.
“With the existing base of programming and staff at Ocean City, coupled with the expertise of Martin and Christy, we are off to a great start,” said GPS CEO Joe Bradley. “We expect to make an immediate impact in the local player development environment by combining our resources and taking a collaborative approach to building programming.”
