TAMPA, Fla. (Via Super Y League) – Bethesda Soccer Club has joined the Super Y League as a member set to compete in 2017.
“Bethesda SC’s introduction to the Super Y League is exciting for multiple reasons. Bethesda SC has built a solid reputation throughout the country as a strong club supported by a commitment to player development, high-quality coaching and premier advancement opportunities for boys and girls within the organization,” said Matt Reda, Manager of Youth League Operations for the Super Y League. “As a member of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy, Bethesda’s introduction to our Mid Atlantic Division will immediately boost the reputation and quality of competition of the Super Y League.”
Bethesda SC, based in Montgomery County, Maryland, focuses on preparing its players for the next level by providing age-appropriate training under the direction of licensed coaches.
“At Bethesda we have seen the growth of the Super Y program locally and feel it now provides the perfect complement to our existing programming long-term,” Director of Coaching (Girls) Shannon Higgins-Cirovski said. “Joining the Super Y means we will have access to high-quality competition and player pathways at complimentary times of the year to our existing programming.”
The club is led by Higgins-Cirovski – who won the 1991 FIFA Women’s World Cup with the United States – and DOC (Boys) Jonathon Colton, who also serves as the Technical Director for the Bethesda Academy, which is a member of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.
