What is NJ Nationals?
The primary goal of the NJ Nationals program is to provide top players with the opportunity to play at the highest youth soccer levels available to them, while still continuing to play for their local soccer club with their friends and classmates. We offer a high level of college preparation through events, video, college fit finder etc.
The NJ Nationals teams come from a collaboration between Chatham United, Cheshire Academy (formerly West Morris Premier), Legacy Premier, Summit Soccer Club and Scotch Plains Fanwood Soccer Club. In the current soccer climate where clubs are constantly competing for players, players and families lose out, so this collection of like-minded clubs came together to create a player focused platform that can provide the best player development experience for long term growth.
NJ Nationals programs are offered in three distinct age groups, each one providing gradually more commitment and high-level soccer. The Blue program is offered to U10-12 players, the Select to U13-15 players and the Elite teams for U16 and older players.
