All of the teams are doing well in their first season playing in the elite EDP League, against top teams from across the Northeast. 

Academy director Owen Scully notes, “The secret sauce for the Academy is the close bonds formed by the players, exhibited by the strong support and sheer determination they put into every game, coupled with tremendous respect, sportsmanship and passion.” 

With current teams at the U12, U13, U14 and U16 age groups, Perfect Touch seeks to develop young ladies to play at the highest level and prepare them for successful high school and college playing careers. 

Made up of talented athletes from Briarcliff and all of Westchester county, PTSA’s affiliation with Briarcliff Youth Soccer Club benefits the local community as well, offering all Briarcliff girls a vertically integrated pathway to premier play beyond their local travel club team, through exposure to PTSA’s training, guest play opportunities, and full squad membership. 

Scully observes, “Looking back at the past 2 years, I’m amazed at the accomplishments these new teams have accumulated, including a NY State Cup championship for the 2015 U13 team, and a NY State Cup finalist in the 2015 U12 team.” 

Tryouts for ’05, ’04, ’03, ’02, ’01, and ’00 birth year teams are currently being held during regular team practice times.
