Manhasset Rebels Qualify for Region 1 NE Regional Premier
On December 27th, the GU17 Manhasset Rebels were notified of their acceptance into US Youth Soccer’s Region 1 Northeast League, otherwise known as NERP. NERP is the first level premier league of Region 1 and is comprised of top teams from across the Eastern NY and New England region. The announcement is the culmination of a long steady climb that the Rebels have made through the middle and then upper divisions of LIJSL over the past several years. State Cup and LI Cup champions in 2013 and two strong seasons in LIJ Division 1, laid the foundation for the team’s acceptance into NERP for Spring 2014 play. The Rebels are the first Manhasset team to have qualified for a Region 1 Premier League. Several local players including Alex Tatarian, Caitlin McNamara, Isabella Salas-Allende, Samantha McCormick and Tara Ferraris trace their soccer roots back to Manhasset Soccer’s pre-K developmental program and the entire team has benefited from Manhasset Soccer’s strong support over the many years. Congratulations to the Rebels!
