TAMPA, Fla. - The Super Y League is thrilled to announce the addition of Jr. Irish SC as a new member ahead of the 2018 season. The northern Indiana-based club will compete in the Midwest Division, playing at the Jr. Irish Soccer Complex.
“We couldn’t be happier to expand our Midwest presence with the addition of Jr. Irish SC,” said the USL’s Associate of Business Development Dominic Colarusso. “The Super Y League is proud to provide another home for young players to continue to develop and grow in Indiana.”
Founded in 1977, Jr. Irish SC has a rich tradition of success spanning decades in the state of Indiana. The club’s ambitions include providing options for the development of young athletes in the Midwest and ensuring that all families have access to a high-level competitive environment in which to grow and improve year-round.
“Jr. Irish Soccer Club is excited to join the Super Y League,” said Jr. Irish SC Executive Director Ken Nuber. “The Super Y League offers a very competitive environment that is a great match for the club. Jr. Irish continues to separate itself from other clubs in the area based on results and the constant vision to improve what it offers its players. We have had individual teams play in Super Y League previously and have enjoyed the experience.”
Jr. Irish SC becomes the third club announced for the upcoming 2018 season, joining Ohio-based CUSA Crew SC and Florida-based FA Euro Academy and will compete in the Midwest Division. They join Indiana Elite as the second Indiana-based club competing in the Super Y League.
“The league offers the club an excellent environment for our teams over the summer months,” Nuber said. ”The Super Y League’s national platform will offer our players opportunities for growth and exposure. It allows us to compete with clubs from across the Midwest that we typically do not get to compete against. Programs such as the USL Experience will offer our players additional opportunities for exposure and a unique opportunity to be seen on a national platform.”
A part of United Soccer Leagues, LLC, which also operates the Division II USL, the new third-division league and Premier Development League, the Super Y League features a summer platform with an annual North American Championship in December.
