Syracuse University Men's Club Soccer

Like & Share:About Us

The Syracuse University Men's Club Soccer team is a part of the New York Collegiate Club Soccer League nyccsl.webs.com made up of 24 teams across New York State that plays its season in the fall. The team holds practices twice a week in the fall and once a week in the winter and spring and usually has two games a weekend in the fall. In the winter the team plays in an indoor league in Liverpool, NY and in the spring they’ll play a couple of friendly matches. The team is about playing hard on a path to victory while having fun doing so. Players on the team are highly skilled former High School, Club, and Premier Level players who wish to continue their soccer career without making the time commitment of playing at a Division 1 Level. Annual tryouts are held in the second week of school in September after the Club Sports Fair. The program is currently student run and not only presents a good opportunity to play soccer at high level, but a good chance to build up a resume if interested in holding leadership positions with the team.

 

Fall 2012 Season:  SU entered the season with the same core group of players looking to emulate the championship season of 2011. Out of the gate SU got off to a fast start going undefeated in the newly redesigned Region 1 League. Placed in the North Central Divsion, SU would go undefeated at 6-0 to earn an automatic bid as North Central Divsion Champions to play in the Region 1 Tournament. At the Region 1 Tournament, #13 ranked Syracuse would play in a competitive group that contained #1 Penn St. Syracuse went 0-2-1 and failed to qualify for the knock out rounds. As the North Central Champions, Syracuse also qualifed for the playoffs to earn an automatic birth in the 2013 Region 1 Tournament. SU would lose in the Semi-Finals in a game that came down to the final seconds against SUNY Buffalo. SU would go on to finish the season ranked #20.

 

Fall 2011 Season:SU had one of its most successful seasons of all time. The team won the Regular Season Central Division of the New York Collegiate Club Soccer League and would go on to win the playoff tournament. Unfourtantly the team did not attend the Northeast Regional Tournament. SU finished the year ranked #14 in Region 1 with a 10-2-1 record. Impressivley the team recorded 9 shutouts and had a +21 goal differential. In the spring the team was invited to compete in the Wildcat Cup with division 3 schools. SU would go undefeated in group playing beating Cazenovia, SUNY ESF, and Morisville State, but would end up losing in the semi-finals.

 

Fall 2010 Season: With a disappointing regular season record, the team was still able to qualify for the Northeast Regional Tournament and went in with an attitude of all or nothing. In a group with George Washington University, #7 Maryland, and The College of New Jersey, Syracuse was able to go 2-1-0 during group play. Though this record usually would result in the team moving onto the knockout stages, their goal differential wasn’t where it needed to be to qualify as a wildcard team. A bittersweet moment after the team had knocked off #7 Maryland in the last game of group play. Midfielder Charles Dellanno and Striker Christian Frederickson led Syracuse offensively throughout the season and Chris Jones chipping in effectively into regional’s.

Fall 2009 Season: SU took in a good rookie class and hit the ground running. After a double header sweep of powerhouses Binghamton and Cornell, the team ranked #5 in Region 1, which spans from Maine down to Maryland. Syracuse was ranked the 5th seed in the regional tournament before the tournament was cancelled due to inclement weather, leaving Syracuse's season to end on a dry note. SU finished the season ranked 9th in the region.

Fall 2008 Season: The team attended the regional tournament in Pennsylvania after a tough regular season and went 1-1-1, finishing third in a very competitive group, not making it to the next round. Their only win was vs. #7 Loyola who they beat convincingly 4-0.
