FirstPoint USA, global leaders in college soccer recruitment, has further expanded its club partnership portfolio in the United States by teaming up with Rochester NY FC Youth to support the club’s aspiring players with the transition onto college soccer.

The premier youth soccer club in western New York, Rochester has a long and established history of developing talented young male and female soccer players, having originally been established as Rochester Rhinos in 1996. The club’s aim is to provide the local community’s youth with the benefits of team sport which develops character, sportsmanship and promotes enjoyment, allowing each player to achieve their best on and off the field of play.

Working with players from U9 through the U19 MLS Next level, RNY FC’s pathway programs include the Girls Believe! League, Boys Soccer League, Girls and Boys Premier, Girls Academy and the MLS Next Boys Academy, while also having a team in the Women’s Premier Soccer League and a team in the UPSL Premier Division.

Executive Director Jen Hoock welcomed the new partnership:

“Rochester NY FC aspires to be the best, most comprehensive youth sport club in Western New York, and provide our members with the opportunity to develop to their full potential, both personally and athletically. We are excited to be working with FirstPoint USA in establishing a partnership which will extend this service to college soccer placements and build on the success we have enjoyed to date.

Our alumni are a great source of pride to us and terrific role models for young players who have similar aspirations, whether it be professionally or in a competitive athletic and academic setting.”

The partnership highlights the continued growth of FirstPoint USA’s club support network, which already includes MLS clubs Philadelphia Union and FC Cincinnati, as well as English Premier League clubs Arsenal and Fulham.

FirstPoint USA’s Head of Club Academy Partnerships Harvey Moyes added:

“We are delighted to be teaming up with Rochester NY FC and it’s a partnership we are looking forward to develop with Jen and her team. The Club has a proven track record of developing talented young players with an impressive alumni roster who have progressed to some fantastic college soccer programs across the country.

With our experience, expertise and coach network, our aim is to enhance the great work the club has been doing and extend that pathway of support through our college placement service. By providing a hands-on, personal approach with families, we have the structure to find the best fit athletically and academically for the individual players we work with.”
