Soccer

The soccer program's over-arching goal is to bring home national titles to the New York Athletic Club. Everything we do, from winter practice in the gymnasium, to competition in the best leagues, to attendance at Club events, helps to improve our level of play and cohesiveness on the field, and brings us steps closer to our goal.

The New York Athletic Club men's and women's team competes in the most competitive amateur leagues in the country; the Cosmopolitan Soccer League, the National Premier Soccer League and the Women's Premier Soccer League.

The NYAC soccer program is affiliated with the United States Adult Soccer Association through which we participate in the men's and women's annual National Cup competition, winning the women's national title in 2007 and 2010. The women are the current 2014 national champions of the USASA open cup.

NYAC players feel privileged to be a part of our team. The organization based on three pillars of achievement: ability, reliability and character. These are our three pillars of excellence and all must be present in all of our athletes.

The Soccer program, players and staff have enormous gratitude to the New York Athletic Club and its members who supports our teams. Our home games are at Travers Island and we hope to see you at an upcoming competition.
