Shoreline FC - Elite Premier Program for U7-U11

“You now have a choice!”


Welcome to Shoreline FC’s Elite Premier Program


Shoreline FC is proud to announce that it has been selected to partner with the National Premier League (NPL) regional organization to form its Elite CCSL League here (Connecticut Club Soccer League) in Connecticut. The league will be composed of other CT like-minded clubs that put Individual Player Development; First. https://www.nyclubsoccerleague.com/.


Additionally, Shoreline FC has been invited to join the NEW League’s advisor board which will self-govern the rules & regulations of this new league, ensuring that every player gets the opportunity to develop in the right environment and under the right guidance.


You now have a Choice because you can choose whether to join Shoreline FC’s exciting and exclusive NPL ELITE Premier program or remain in town with your local town travel program. The CCSL and Shoreline FC does not have any residency constrains, so we can roster players from any CT or NY town. Players will be selected through a tryout basis and if selected, join one of Shoreline's exclusive NPL ELITE teams. Follow our links below for tryout registration


What truly sets Shoreline apart from other organizations is our level of coaching. Directed by Danny Simpson (please CLICK HERE to see Danny's coaching resume')  and with input from our English Premier League Partners; West Ham United; our NPL Elite Player Curriculum will be of  the very highest caliber. FYI West Ham Academy Director Mr. Tony Carr (MBE) has produced such world class players as Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, etc.

Shoreline FC is your child’s soccer future.
