Shoreline FC is fully dedicated to the development of each athlete to achieve their greatest potential as a soccer player. Our challenging, competitive and nurturing program, will build strength and character in each player through the four pillars of the game; Technical, Tactical, Physical and Mental skills.
“Practice makes Permanent”
What sets Shoreline FC apart from other Premier clubs?
Like MANY Shoreline FC players & parents, we got to attend and support our Youth Soccer Partner New York City FC in their MLS home opener against the New England Revolution on Sunday 3/15/15. Yankee Stadium was rocking with over 43'500 fans really getting behind their team and making some noise!!
It made for a great game of football, with some fantastic passages of play and a very well deserved win for the MLS new boys.
ADDITIONALLY, it was very pleasing to see NYCFC acknowledge their youth partners by advertising our club logo on their electronic advertising boards as you entered Yankee Stadium and unbelievable on their BIG SCREEN inside the stadium. You should all feel very proud to be a part of MLS / New York and Shoreline FC history. (FYI: If you have any photos of the game you would like me to add to this section, please send them over to me). Thank you NYCFC.
We look forward to the next home game on March 28th v Sporting Kansas City. (For ticketing information with our NYCFC Rep, please e-mail Mr. Chris Carra;
OR call (212) 738-5856)
Lastly, look out for information on the "Shoreline FC Day" at Yankee Stadium when NYCFC play hosts to the NY Red Bulls on Sunday June 28th.....
I want to thank you all for the overwhelming support our Shoreline family gave to our fundraising dinner held on Friday Feb 27th at the Waters Edge, Darien. Over 120-Shoreline FC parents attended the event, which featured; 15-silent auction items, 12-raffle prizes, a fabulously catered 3-course meal, drinks and a full 24-minute video on "Shoreline FC... the story so far" !!
Everybody had a wonderful night and made many new friends with other Shoreline parents in attendance. Your generosity through donation, silent auction or raffle money, raised enough funding to cover the costs of NINE scholarship players!!! Unbelievable.
Thank you all again and have a successful spring season.
Shoreline Players travel to Super Y National ODP Camp
Shoreline FC wishes two of its players; Steven Restrepo & Pablo Martinez (both from the Shoreline FC BU16 Liverpool team) the very best of luck as they head down to Florida to compete in the Super Y National ODP Camp @ The IMG Academy; Bradenton, FL.
Both players were selected for the event from their exceptional play in last summers Super Y Summer League for Shoreline FC. By their selection, the boys will compete against the very best players from across the country that participate in the USL Super Y Program.
We have been working extremely hard over the past 9-months to develop Shoreline FC Premier Soccer Club, in the Madison / North Branford, New Haven County area.
Our outstanding facility; CT Sportsplex, has built TWO brand new all purpose turf fields for Shoreline FC's usage!!! The aerial picture shows just what a fantastic facility it is.
Ben Joiner (Madison Program Director), has two strong squads; BU12 Red Bulls & BU14 Galaxy currently in the program, but with many more players (boys & girls) training with our staff. They are working hard to learn the Shoreline style of play and will be even stronger players/ teams come the spring.
It has been a real pleasure going up to train the players and work with Ben on their progress. Look for Jason Simone, Matt Ellis and our Goalkeeping coach Darren Trim to be featured in the CT Sportsplex coaching the boys this winter.
Keep up the hard work lads. We are extremely proud of you and appreciate you being part of the Shoreline soccer family.
For more details of our Madison location and tryout information, please contact Mr. Ben Joiner;
Chris Mackay (BU16 Liverpool Goalkeeper & Captain) along with Alejandro Maclean (also BU16 Liverpool) both hold the distinguished honor of being Regional players and part of the US Region 1 Player Pool. This 60-player pool is selected from over the very best 300+ players from West Virginia - Maine.
In January, both players attended a Regional Pool camp at Penn State University to compete for the chance to be part of an 18-player Region 1 International Squad.
Chris had already participated in the countries intra-Regional games at IMG, Florida this past December and set his sights on being part of that International Regional Squad for the 2nd year in a row.
Therefore, it gives me great pleasure in announcing that Shoreline FC's Chris Mackay has been selected to be a part of the Region 1 squad traveling to Barcelona, Spain in March/April.
Congratulations Chris. Your club, coaches and teammates are so very proud of both your's and Ale's achievements. CLICK HERE To read more on Chris's rise to the top

THE SHORELINE FC 2015 TRIP TO LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER IN APRIL. WE CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK AMONGST OUR UK FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES.
With over 9-months of planning and organization, countless conversations, players signing up – stepping down – signing up again and last minute additions, I’m so very proud to share with you the most amazing soccer trip Shoreline FC girls have just been on.
We left the US on Saturday April 12th and returned Sunday April 20th. In those 8-days (fitting that we went to Liverpool for 8-days a week!!), these girls got to experience England at its very best; Sunshine (YES SUNSHINE), football, food and life-long friendships.
These ladies were treated like royalty by the fantastic clubs we got to play against. Preston North End, Golbourne Girls, Tranmere Rovers, Lancashire Select and Euxton Girls all gave our players the very warmest of welcomes, competition on the fields and hospitality afterwards.
I have put together a power point recapping our trip. CLICK HERE to share in our experiences; A wonderful trip exclusive to Shoreline FC.
I look forward to presenting our 2015 trip to you all in the very near future (FYI: I already have girls signed up for next year that went with us this year!!!
