Cosmos Enter Partnership with Play Study Win/Metro Soccer NY

The New York Cosmos and Play Study Win/Metro Soccer NY  announced on Friday a partnership that will see the Cosmos Training & Development Program (TDP) work with the youth and adult soccer organization to offer training clinics at Brooklyn Bridge Park  Pier 5 this spring.

“We’re really looking forward to be working with the Cosmos,” said Ian Walker, President of Play Study Win and Metro Soccer NY. “Over the past few years Play Study Win has established itself by providing quality soccer programs to our students in underserved communities in and around New York City. The opportunities to partner with the Cosmos and the experience, dedication and soccer knowledge that they and their staff bring, are rare and valuable indeed.”

The Brooklyn spring clinics will be offered on Saturdays beginning March 22 for ages 7-12 year old players. The Cosmos TDP focuses on player development by providing a program based on the Cosmos’ club philosophy. TDP programs were created to assist youth soccer organizations in developing players, at all levels.
