OFFICIAL CLUB PRESS RELEASE: FA Euro New York is thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with Poly Prep Country Day School. In addition to being the focal training & match site for the club's entire youth sector, the 25-acre Dyker Heights campus will be the new home field for the USL League Two First Team after spending the last two seasons at Belson Stadium of St. John's University (2017) and at Aviator Sports Complex (2018).
The club and school will work in tandem, as FA Euro New York will oversee Poly Prep's soccer program during the Ivy Preparatory School League, a division of the greater New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS), by implementing its staff of licensed coaches (all possessing a background of high level soccer in both a collegiate and professional level) to manage its Middle School, Junior Varsity and Varsity teams. During the off-season, FA Euro New York will offer full year programs to the school's student body in the form of year long club play, tournaments, tours, recreational clinics and seasonal camps.
"We cannot think of a better place to call home. Not only does Poly offer state of the art facilities where our players can continue to develop according to the highest standards, but shares similar principles and values of honing the next generation of leaders to act with intelligence, imagination, and character. Regarding USL League Two, we hope to create a terrific game-day atmosphere for the Brooklyn community as Poly's accessibility allows easy travel for local supporters to attend." - Marco Balsamo, FA Euro Executive Director
