AZTEC SOCCER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH FC BOSTON AZZURRI FOR 2019/2020 SEASON
Topsfield, MA, Friday, August 9, 2019 – Aztec Soccer is excited to announce a new partnership with FC Boston Azzurri, another Northshore soccer club. Like Aztec, FC Boston Azzurri’s mission is focused on individual player development, and developing skills in young players to give them the foundation they need to be successful in their athletic careers.
Beginning in the fall of 2019, Azzurri teams will compete in the New England Premiership under the name Aztec Boston Azzurri.
Azzurri was founded in 2009 by Jennifer McLellan. What started with a town-based futsal program in 2008 grew quickly to 250 players and developed into nine teams competing in the Maple and MASC leagues by the end of 2009. Azzurri has strong relationships with several Northshore town soccer programs. The club provides town programs with consulting services, professional coaching, and tailored programs to develop parent coaches and players in their tots through travel programs.
“Our philosophy has been to give players the tools and vision to play the game of soccer, and along with that comes the confidence, the love of the game and the passion to perfect their craft,” said McLellan. “Watching this transformation in players is my passion.”
“Aztec soccer has been the pinnacle of elite soccer on the Northshore for decades and merging F.C. Boston Azzurri with the Aztec organization is an amazing opportunity for us to grow our vision of player development, first and in an environment that affords our players the best possible soccer experience available, locally,” McLellan added.
McLellan holds a NCAA Regional coaching license. She coached at Melrose High School for five years and is now entering her sixth year as a coach at Austin Prep. In her tenure with both programs the teams have reached their highest level of success in school history. McLellan also has competed at the Regional level in both soccer and futsal, and has been a successful District Select coach for seven years, winning many Championships for District 5.
“Working with a club that has a vision of pure individual development for all players is wonderful," said Mohammed Souisse, NPL Girls Director at Aztec. "McLellan’s daughter at the age of 10 played for Aztecs, where McLellan witnessed the superior player development environment of the Aztec organization. McLellan has recreated that environment in F.C. Boston Azzurri and the merger between the two clubs brings things full circle, aligning both clubs to provide the ultimate player development environment for all of Northshore."
