New York City FC expands Academy structure with City Select League

NEW YORK, N.Y. (Via NYCFC) – New York City FC has introduced the City Select League (CSL) which will commence play in fall 2019.

Launched in 2016 as the NYCFC Affiliate League, the expanded City Select League will now include more than 20 clubs across the Boys U-9 to U-12 age groups.

NYCFC Academy Director Sam Pugsley said: “With the U.S. Soccer Development Academy dropping the U-12 age group starting in the fall of 2019, we had a natural platform to expand our youth league to the U-12 age group, while also including a number of new clubs in the area. Moving forward, we’re confident that the City Select League will offer clubs in the broader Tri-State area an optimal competitive platform for player development and pathway.

“We’ve reached out to and chosen some very good clubs that will help facilitate the launch of the City Select League. They know and understand what we’re looking for and what the general philosophy and overall ethos of the league is.”

NYCFC Sporting Director Claudio Reyna added: “The City Select League came from NYCFC as a Club wanting to connect and have relationships with local youth soccer clubs in the area. We’ve done that from day one and for us it’s been very important to make sure our door is always open.

“Creating a competition that we oversee and manage will ensure it’s the right environment for youth players in the Tri-State area. It’s really unique amongst MLS teams and it is important to continue every year to develop more and more relationships with the local soccer community and this is one big step towards that.”

In its current form, the youth league consists of NYCFC’s seven affiliate clubs: Downtown United SC, Manhattan SC, Met Oval, New York Soccer Club, TSF, SUSA and World Class FC. Once the expanded league format commences this fall, additional local clubs will be involved throughout New York City, Long Island, Westchester County, Rockland County, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

At its core, the league enables young players to compete, learn and grow within the structure of Academy soccer. The City Select League concentrates on four main pillars:

Meaningful competition: Inclusion of top-level clubs in talent-rich areas
Managing league format and structure: Prioritizes development with age appropriate guidelines
Reduced travel and cost: Increases local competition with no team registration fee
Shared sporting values: Allows a transparent player pathway to professional soccer

Pugsley added: “The general ethos of the league has been to share common sporting values that maximize player development and we hope we can extrapolate that out to the wider group as we look to expand to the U-12s and include outside clubs.”

Reduce travel ... they have Oakwood listed that’s a good 2 hours away. Who are they kidding ?

And this funny. “Allows a transparent player a clear pathway to the prooffesional soccer” first off whats a transparent player ?? And second you wanna talk about false promises. Whoever thought of this should be fired.

They also forgot to add a fifth pillar - “ you will be helping us with ticket sales”

It states “Transparent player pathway to professional”...your quote above is incorrect....doesn’t state “Allows a transparent player a clear pathway....”

My son plays in this league and I think this is a good thing. More teams and more talent means better competition.

To clarify, in addition to adding U12, they are adding a significant number of additional clubs including FC Westchester, Beachside, Barca, Cedar Stars Bergen, and Gottschee.
