Stronghold Soccer Club


We are New Jersey's oldest soccer club dedicated to premier level development of select boy and girl youth players from U11 to U18. SSC is centrally located in New Jersey in the scenic rolling hills of the Peapack-Gladstone area. Nonetheless, SSC players historically have represented a state-wide constituency. Stronghold coaches are similarly drawn from the best the region has to offer, and each is accomplished in his or her own right.


**U17 Boys - Spartans**

We have an immediate opening or two for a competitive field player on our U17 boys Stronghold Spartans. This is open to boys with a date of birth between August 1, 1997 and July 31, 1998 or younger. The Spartans are former NJYS and US Club Soccer NJ state champions as well as champions of numerous soccer and futsal leagues and tournaments over the years. Players appropriate for this team will typically be core starting players on their varsity high school teams. The Spartans are coached by Kean University's head coach, Rob Irvine, formerly of UPenn.
