With the recent Board elections that took place, there was one position that remained vacant - VP of Boys Rec. If you would like to get more involved with the club and be able to provide your own input as to the direction of the program, why not consider taking on this volunteer role. Often people have said they would like "to be involved" and here is your chance. If you even think that you may wish to contribute in this dynamic role, or if you simply have questions about it, please send an email to email@example.com . As preparation for Spring season is not that far away, the club is asking for you to communicate with us before the Christmas holidays.

EBSC and STA Officially Announce Partnership
The East Brunswick Soccer Club (EBSC), one of New Jersey's leading community-based youth soccer clubs, has bolstered both its training program and the competitive opportunities for its elite youth teams by partnering with STA/SONESOCCER. The partnership will mean that SONESOCCER will provide recreation and travel training to EBSC players and teams, while the club's elite teams will have the opportunity to become EBSC/STA teams, with advanced academy-style training and the chance to compete at the highest possible level of play. "We are very excited about the possibilities with STA and SONESOCCER," said Howard Gessner, EBSC's president. "We already have an exceptional youth soccer program, with nearly 40 years of great history, and we see this as a next important step in ensuring the continued excellence of our club. This is a partnership that will help all of our players -- from our 5-year-old Superstars through Recreation and Travel and al l the way up to our most advanced U18 teams." Sarah Brady, coach of the EBSC/STA Fuzion U11G team competing in the JAGS Premier A Division 8v8, continued: "EBSC has always been a hotbed of soccer talent -- a great feeder for the exceptional East Brunswick High School teams and many top college programs. Not only does the club already have first-rate players and teams wearing the EBSC jersey, but if you look at club academies in the area, they are stacked full of EBSC players. We can now keep those players with their home club and provide them with academy-style elite training, professional coaches and unmatched league competition."
