The 5v5 Winter 2018 season is off and running. We have just completed an amazing tournament at the Teaneck Coliseum.

Check out the Regional Final Location near you and we’ll see you and your team there.
Today, team Amici Uniti really shocked the youth soccer scene in Bergen County NJ. A brand new team compiled of local friends joined forces to be the single only U8 team to win all 4 group games at the Thanksgiving Shootout.
What really impressed the crowd of 1k attending fans and supporters was that every single player minus the Goalie Erik Casiano, each scored at least 1 goal. This doesn’t happen often, let alone in a U8 divison. These kids really worked hard and overcame several obstacles especially in game 2 being down 1 goal with only 1 substitute player to than score 3 unanswered goals to finally win the game.
Meeting the Torpedoes in the finals didn’t come as easy as we would have hoped for. Amici Uniti FC was down the entire game but never gave up. Each child battled till the final whistle to come up short in a final score of 5-2. But with confidence and determination we quickly regained focus and have already began preparation for our next opponent.
