Team New England 2020

The Future Begins Today

Interest in US Soccer has exploded in recent years. The promise of the US competing in international play is becoming a reality. As youth players continue to develop using US tactics, we at New England Elite Soccer believe that the best way to prepare our youth for future international play is to give them exposure to the high levels of competition at the international level.

To that end, NEES is assembling a team of 20 highly skilled players born in 2006 or 2007 to travel to Italy in April of 2020 and compete in a tournament of Serie A academy teams. The goal is to expose aspiring US based soccer players to international play against storied Italian Club Development Academies.



Unique Coaching Style

Led by US licensed coaching, players selected to Team New England will receive training beginning in June 2019 through April 2020. Understanding that most of our players will have other soccer commitments, our training schedule will not interfere with existing team schedules nor will we compete against teams which players are already assigned to play.

Our coaching promises to be unique in that players will be pushed to perform to new levels in preparation for what promises to be levels of competition unlike anything experienced in the US.



Trip Itinerary

Our trip offers parents and players a unique opportunity to see some of the oldest cities in Europe. On occasions, there will be excursions to explore cities like Florence where Italian fashion is alive and vibrant.

For those interested in exploring other parts of Italy, excursions can be arranged.

Included in this unique opportunity will be training sessions with Serie A development academy coaches who will provide Italian style training to our 20 roster players.

The team will also be treated to a live Serie A game in Italy. There our players and families will experience the passion and thrill of Italian soccer with all the festivities associated with its fan base.
