Freehold Soccer League's recreation soccer program has be named the 2017 Recreation Soccer Program of the Year by New Jersey Youth Soccer and the league will be honored at the annual NJYS awards dinner on Friday, February 2, 2018.
"This is a great award for not only the club but Freehold Township overall. The FSL Board realized how important recreation soccer was for the club and community and invested in building a better program for the kids. FSL also had the full support of the township which was evident based on the letter of recommendation provided by our Mayor, Lester Preston and submitted along with our application", said Dave Moore, outgoing Recreation Commissioner.
During Dave Moore's tenure as Recreation Commissioner, FSL has invested in paid professional training and a playoff system for both the Fall and Spring seasons to help promote the program and excite the children and their families. It has also worked annually with the Kohl's Cup, Red Bulls and New Jersey Youth Soccer to bring in additional external training programs to highlight the importance of recreation soccer and to benefit the children.
"Dave has helped build a great recreation soccer program and it's awesome recognition for the town and club" stated incoming Recreation Commissioner Paul Pennisi.
FSL competed against other recreation programs from throughout the state to win this prestigous award.

While it was a typical overcast Autumn day weather wise, the sun shined bright on the Freehold Storm yesterday at Friendship Fields in Bordentown.
The Freehold Storm completed their conquest and captured the New Jersey Youth Soccer State Championship yesterday afternoon by beating the Voorhees Heat 3-1.
The Freehold Storm started their championship run with a 4-2 win over Scotch Plains Fanwood Rampone and continued with subsequent victories against Montclair Match Fit (5-1) and Old Bridge Octane (3-2) prior to facing Voorhees Heat in the championship match.
“Freehold Soccer League is one of the few travel youth soccer programs left that is still made up of town kids, coached by town parents and has not partnered with youth sports academies" said Coach Bill Kruesi. "Teams are coached by parents while incorporating paid trainers to assist with player development. Most of the clubs we face are all coached by paid professionals and also bring in kids from other towns to create their rosters and that was the case here as well. We are the last of the true ‘Townies’ still holding on to how it all started back when travel soccer began.”
Throughout the championship run the Storm displayed speed and finesse up front, domination winning the middle of the field, lock down defense, and solid consistent goalie play, all of which kept the competition at bay.
“Throughout the entire championship run it was a total team effort of all 13 girls said Coach Dave Moore. These girls just love playing the game of soccer, working together as a team and hanging out together off the field as well. Each player’s skills complement the others which is a key reason for the team’s success.”
Per New Jersey Youth Soccer, each Storm player will receive their own Topps player card, a dinner in the team’s honor in February and will also receive a coveted spot on the Freehold Soccer League ‘Wall of Champions’ by the Jackson Mill Field’s snack stand.
