Sessions are hosted regionally (south, shore/central and north) to facilitate participation throughout the state.

This effort will establish consistency in training session and related player evaluations.

    Club NJYS, designed specifically for players born in 2007 and 2008, is an introductory stage for players who aspire to play at a high level. Club NJYS provides a path to participate in the Young Olympians Program and ODP. Players' abilities will be assessed and the sessions will be segmented so that players are training with others of like ability.

    While the programs are customized for each age group, both Club NJYS and the Young Olympians Programs include training sessions and a festival featuring small-sided games. Pre-registration is required. To ensure a proper training environment, registration for each Club NJYS (2007 and 2008) group will be limited to fifty (50) players on a first come first served basis. If demand exceeds capacity, NJ Youth Soccer will create a waiting list and seek solutions for those individuals desiring to participate. For the Young Olympians Program (2006), there is a tryout process with a maximum of 100 players permitted by area. From that, area training teams of approximately thirty (30) players will be identified.
