One of the most underrated and under-utilized methods of player development in today’s game is watching the next level play. Parents of youth players should be pushing their kids to watch soccer on TV and especially in person where time and opportunity arises. Well I am here to tell you of a great opportunity as on Friday August 19th at 7PM Rutgers and Rider women’s soccer teams square off at Rider University. This is a great chance to get your daughter (or son) out to a game in the summer months where soccer is limited and show them what college soccer is all about!
It is totally free admission – as it always is at Rider University – all you have to do is show up and enjoy the Divison I game. The address for the field is:
Rider University’s Ben Cohen Field – Lawrenceville, NJ 08648
NJ talent can be seen on both sides:
Players Above From Left to Right:
Brianna Magana – Fullback – Rider University – Junior – Sicklerville, NJ
Casey Murphy – Goalkeeper – Rutgers University – Senior – Bridgewater, NJ
Colby Ciarrocca – Forward – Rutgers University – Senior – Montgomery, NJ
There are many more great New Jersey athletes on display and I hope you take the opportunity to show your child the strength, athleticism, organization, and discipline of Division I athletes.
