Watchung Hills SA and Match Fit Academy Announce Partnership for NJ Elite Program
Watchung Hills Soccer Association (WHSA) and Match Fit Academy FC (MFAFC) are pleased to announce their Strategic Training Partnership. In conjunction with this new partnership, WHSA is also proud to announce the expansion of its NJ Elite Program to include NJ Elite teams at certain age groups. MFAFC trainers will coach and train many of those teams.
WHSA has had a strong track record of developing highly competitive youth boys’ and girls’ soccer teams. The WHSA NJ Elite teams will continue to build upon WHSA’s successful NJ Elite and Travel Programs and provide all players a potential pathway to ECNL and NPL through the partnership with MFAFC.
NJ Elite will build upon the success of the current NJ Elite and WHSA Travel programs by bridging the competitive gap between those two programs. NJ Elite teams will initially compete in EDP mid to upper level flights and provide another level of play for the committed soccer player.
- Full time Professional staff coach/trainer
- Oversight by MFAFC and WHSA Directors of Coaching
- Access to ECNL and NPL Boys and Girls programs through MFAFC
- Player pathway through collaboration
- All training and match play will continue out of WHSA’s turf facilities
“As the soccer landscape continues to evolve in New Jersey, we will continue to enhance our programs to provide players with an exceptional environment to develop their soccer skills and compete at the highest levels. With the addition of NJ Elite Orange, WHSA now offers a complete range of soccer options for area children. From our in-town recreation program, sending district travel teams, NJ Elite to NJ Elite Gold, every player has an opportunity to play in our club at the right competitive level. The partnership with MFAFC allows us to execute on this strategy and provide a player pathway for all our players. We are thrilled with the MFAFC partnership and look forward to working with them to support our NJ Elite teams.”– Frank Sena, WHSA President
