Met Oval could not be more excited to announce that we are migrating our Youth Center Of Excellence structure and methodologies to include girls! Met Oval is dedicated to developing New York's elite level soccer talent by offering youth of all backgrounds the opportunity to play soccer in a committed environment.
Met Oval already develops the most talent in the region and now we will add to that by including girls in our program. Our “Professional Pathway” will help these girls to play professionally and in college.
The girls program will relaunch at Met Oval East for the 2019/20 season with girls born 2007-2011.
The Head Coach of the 2007 Girls team will be Michael Filippi. The team will train in Hicksville, New York, alongside the boys teams and play their games at Metropolitan Oval field in Maspeth.
“We’re very excited to be able to finally bring a girls program to Met Oval,” says Met Oval East Director Yannick Salmon. “It has been a goal of ours for years but we feel that now is the right moment. As our program continues to grow out East, we look forward to spreading our club values and philosophy to aspiring players all over Long Island.”
