Message from the Club President: Good Luck this Fall
by posted 09/06/2014
 

Welcome to the Fall 2014 season of Hamilton Girls Soccer Club. I hope you are all as excited as I am as the club begins is 43rd year of play as the oldest all female soccer club in New Jersey.

As with many sports organizations, there are some changes but many things remain the same.

Change is always a challenge but I think our changes will benefit the girls in our club – which is always our main objective.

Our biggest change is our age groups. Many of you might have noticed we changed our age groups from a calendar year to August to July year.  This was done to align ourselves with the rest of the soccer world. It makes it easier to adjust to travel soccer and will help in the development of the girls.

Hamilton Girls Soccer Club announces affiliation with NJ Rush
by posted 09/07/2013
 

NJ Rush welcomes the Hamilton Girls Soccer Club and Hamilton Wildcats FC to our NJ Rush Family.

Following the lead of Rush International, NJ Rush has a goal of spreading the “Rush Way” philosophy of coaching and training throughout New Jersey through key affiliations throughout the State. 

“New Jersey is a hotbed for soccer on the East Coast and we want New Jersey Rush to be the epicenter for soccer development in the State.  We believe strongly in the Rush Way training and coaching methodologies and we feel that the best way to help players reach their full potential is to introduce them to the highest level of training and development at the earliest ages,” says Sandeep Mehtani, Executive Director of New Jersey Rush.

New Jersey Rush is taking a true grassroots approach to influencing player development.

The traditional “Academy” model employed by the majority of premier clubs in New Jersey fails to address the fundamental principles of youth development.  In the traditional academy model, players come up through the township/local club and then are recruited to “advance” and join the “Academy” when they are old enough (typically 10-11 years old.)  Under this model, only a select few players are impacted by the Academy level of training and development.

“Our focus is different,” says Sandeep Mehtani, “cognitive and physical development together are happening rapidly at ages 5 through 8.  Kids at these ages are like sponges, they absorb everything.  Unfortunately, most Academy programs ignore these ages.  We aim to change that!  By affiliating directly with select local clubs in various regions of the State, we can influence player development and education on a grassroots level at much younger ages and continue that advanced development progression through the formative years.  This is why affiliating with Hamilton Girls Soccer Club and Hamilton Wildcats was a top priority for us.”

“Hamilton Girls Soccer Club is pleased to enter this partnership with NJ Rush as it will enhance our already comprehensive soccer program,” said Tom Slater, Hamilton Girls Soccer Club president. “This partnership will allow us to offer a well-rounded robust player development system for our entry level recreation player to our highest level of competitive player and everyone in between.”
 
“As the club enters its 41st year and the Hamilton Wildcats enter their 10th year of existence, we are proud our program that has resulted in dozens of high school players, state level and regional level players and our first State Cup championship. This partnership with NJ Rush will make our club the premier girls soccer club in Central Jersey.”
 
Ron Celestin, Assistant Women’s Coach at Princeton University, has been named Technical Director of New Jersey Rush Hamilton.  Lisa Gmitter-Pittaro, former US Women’s National Team player, has been named as the Director of Coaching for New Jersey Rush Hamilton.
 
 “I am so happy to have the Hamilton Girls Soccer Club and the Hamilton Wildcats FC join the New Jersey Rush family.  With a great centralized location, and with Ron Celestin and Lisa Pittaro leading the way, Hamilton Girls Soccer Club will be a fantastic hub for our New Jersey Rush girls soccer program in Central New Jersey,” said Greg Wiesmore, President of New Jersey Rush.
