Anyone a part of them? Know where in "Central Nassau" they are expecting to build a facility? Or is it going to be at Post for a while, which isn't bad, but not what was promoted.
My guess (and I don't know) is Post. The club was bankrupt and I am guessing since recapitalized since that are opening these schools. They went broke from the cost of their stadium the built in Spain.

Maybe someone else can comment but I believe they have new ownership.

My son is on one of their teams. We definitely took a chance on this hoping for something good. But I did notice several of the kids from the 1st tryout session that made the club did not return for the second tryout so. Not who is even on the team.
But they have announced they will be playing in EDP in the fall. Look like a nice facility they will be using at Post.

LM doesn't like them because they wouldn't cowtow to his demands, LM bad mouthed them because of that so they decided not to work together. As you know, if you don't pacifier LM, your a target. So basically, Valencia told BOTN to go scratch. Good for them.

They're at Post for the long haul. They just completed their mid-summer camp, the last two weeks of August are the mandatory team camps and their fall practice schedules have been posted for a couple weeks. These events and all their home games are at Post. Pretty facility and well maintained grass fields.

I am taking a stab here, which would be a deal breaker for us. Because they have a mandatory camp last two weeks of August I would assume they prohibit school ball and the camp is there way of insuring that outcome since schools have tryouts and mandatory practice those weeks.

Older kids will have a lot of time if they can't play school ball considering it's NYPL/EDP club soccer. I will chalk this up to their not understanding the local soccer calendar, a rookie flub.

Maybe they should have consulted with an oracle like Larry. /SARCASM

They actually encourage school ball. Most amateur European clubs take pride in their players competing for their prep schools. They mentioned in their presentations that the leagues they were joining would allow it.

I would just double check that because a good friends son played on u12 academy for Cosmos and they had to sign a contract that they will only participate in Cosmos Soccer. I hope it's not the case here but I'd check.
