Local Notes
Ocean County Observer – March 1, 2005

The Jersey Shore Boca Soccer Club has announced it will be-gin its fifth consecutive year of competition in the Super Y-League this spring.

It has has entered five teams in the nation’s most competitive youth soccer league.

Jersey Shore Boca will enter five boys teams in the SYL this year — under 13s, under 14s, under 15s, under 16s and under 19s.

All of Boca’s teams, with the exception of the U-19 team, will compete in the Mid-Atlantic Di-vision in the Northeast Confer-ence. They will play their home matches at the Manchester Soc-cer Complex, Colonial Drive.

The Boca U19s will compete in the Metro Division and will face teams from The Storm Academy, Metrostars and Iron-bound Sport Club among oth-ers, during their 12-game schedule.

In addition to the South Jersey Barons and Super Nova FC, the Boca under 13 through under 16 teams will again face some of the top youth soccer clubs in the United States this season, including DC United, the Northern Virginia Royals, the Baltimore Bays and the Read-ing, Pa., Rage. Each of the five Boca SYL teams will play be-tween 12 and 14 games in a home and away series against other members of the Mid-At-lantic and Metro Divisions.

The winner and runner-up in each of the league’s seven divi-sions will compete for the Su-per Y-League National Champi-onship after the completion of the regular season.

The Jersey Shore Boca 2004 U15 Super Y-League team carved a chapter in Boca’s history last year as it won the under 15 SYL Mid-Atlantic Division and traveled to Florida for the 2004 Super Y-League North Ameri-can National Championship.

The Super Y-League is entering its seventh season of league play, featuring the top clubs and players in the United States and Canada.

Affiliated with US Soccer and partnered with US Club Soccer, the league is designed for youth players destined for profession-al or international careers.

Through Olympic Development (ODP) status programs such as the North American Finals and National ODP Camps, the na-tion’s top players who compete in the SYL can be considered for selection to United States National Team Programs.

The Super Y-League is the only North American youth league designed for the top one per-cent of elite youth players in the United States and Canada. Jersey Shore Boca has been the only member of the Super Y-League from Monmouth or Ocean County since its incep-tion into the league in 2001.

The club is celebrating its 27-year anniversary this year.

Jersey Shore Boca is presently holding open tryouts for their 2005 Super Y-League teams.
