"To provide a supportive and competitive environment for player development to maximize each player’s potential on the soccer field and in life. We plan to achieve this by focusing on our core values; personal improvement, team building, respect, integrity, community and love for the game! "
To develop each player’s individual ability first so that they are confident enough to make significant contributions to the team. This is a philosophy born out of the idea that your team is only as strong as your weakest player. Accomplishing that mission requires a smaller player-to-coach ratio so that each player is given more individual attention and interaction with their coaches to truly maximize their potential which is the key to player development.
We emphasize the development of speed, agility, technique, decision making, and creativity on the soccer ball. We focus on strengthening their individuality without losing site that soccer is a collective sport.
Teaneck Stingrays have been established for over twenty five years as a competitive grass roots soccer club. Since its inception, youth soccer in the United States has become big business with dozens of clubs and academies created with the promise of being direct pipelines to professional careers. While we continue to expand our professional reach with associated academies such as Red Bulls, World Class, Epic Sporting/Etienne Soccer, Quick Touch/ Pro Elite Training, and others, we strongly believe that each player’s path is unique and should be handled accordingly. Instead of focusing solely on the dream of playing professionally, we highlight the opportunities of achieving a free education through athletic scholarships and the merits of university educations. As a club that values community, we aren’t here to just teach soccer, we’re here to educate our players.
