Stars Under-19 Team Returns For Spring Season
CARL REYNOLDS, “Unique… fantastic for players in so many ways…”
Southern States SC, Director of Player Development, Carl Reynolds, explained the thinking behind the club's addition of an under-19 NPSL team. “This is unique. What an opportunity, just fantastic for players in so many ways. Here is a chance to push themselves into high-level youth competition with a sprinkling of experienced, older players allowed. This will be a made for purpose, a true reserve league along European lines with the step up into the adult, minor league team a real target for these players”.
Southern States SC expects a high-level spring league such as this would attract college coaches and help in the recruiting process. The league will start in March and end before the minor league team kicks-off in May. Coach Reynolds added, “The chance for youth players, college freshmen, and a few older players to come together like this continues to help bridge the gap between youth and adult play”.
WHAT IS THIS LEAGUE ABOUT? Our new Under-19 reserve league team will play in the National Premier Soccer League’s Gulf Coast Conference. The team will be allowed to include three overage players and directly connects with our new NPSL adult, minor league team.
