State Cup Success & Regionals Prep

Our club crowned three PA West State Cup winners and two GLC regional league winners.

Congratulations to our State Cup and regional league winners! Our club is very proud and wishes all the players the best of luck at the regional tournaments for which they have qualified.

2006 Boys - State Cup & GLC Champions

The 2006 boys did the double this spring, winning their PA West State Cup and finishing top of the table in their GLC regional league.

Their success also means they've qualified for the new USYS P.R.O. National League.

"The success of the 06 boys can be highly attributed to the group's commitment to their development process," says Coach Jonathan Velotta.

"The players bought into the demands of playing the game the right way at a young age and are now earning their rewards. The group's ability to dominate the ball and solve problems with skill and tactical flexibility has set them up for long term individual and team success."

2004/2005 Girls - State Cup Champions

Coach Yon Struble, when asked, said the team has been incredibly committed to their training which was important after picking up 7 new players.

"They trained in snow, shoveled fields, rain and everything in between to help ensure their success," he said. "While many of the events they had scheduled were canceled, they were extremely successful at the National League Showcase, Jefferson Cup and GLC Showcase."

The girls won the PA West State Cup, holding the trophy since 2019.

"This success was a culmination of their hard work and dedication," Coach Struble says. "We are looking forward to fine tuning the team as we prepare to head to NJ for the Regional Championships!"

2002/2003 Boys - GLC Regional League Champions

Though falling short in the State Cup, the 02/03 boys did the job earlier this season by winning their regional league, allowing them to qualify for the regional tournament.

"Our Arsenal U19 Academy boys players were identified during their U15-16 years from an original pool of over 70 players," Coach Dan Brower says. "These selected boys train 3-4 times per week and in a highly competitive environment. Our U19 Academy pool consists of players who have the right mentality, technique, drive, and football brains."

This three-year project has seen the boys ranked as the number 1 team in the state and top 10 in the country while winning multiple regional tournaments including Potomac, Bethesda and PA Classics.

The U19 boys went undefeated this spring to win the Premier Division of the Great Lakes Conference which, in turn, earned them a place in the upcoming USYSA Midwest Regional tournament in St. Louis in late June.

The Great Lakes Conference consists of teams from New York West, PA West, Ohio North, Ohio South, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

"It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with these Arsenal boys throughout these last several years!"

2007 Girls - PA West State Cup Champions

Our 2007 girls finished a successful spring campaign with a PA West State Cup championship.

The team is always seeking new challenges, including having several girls who consistently train in with the 2007 boys pool as well.

Their success qualifies them for the regional tournament this summer.

Congratulations to all our players and teams, and good luck on your regional journeys!

We are always accepting new players!

Take the challenge and become an Arsenal player.
