The Scouting Report
On June 7, the Nor'Easters look to line up on the pitch opposite Premier Development League rivals the Long Island Rough Riders. Both teams are vying for dominance in the Eastern Conference's Mid Atlantic Division—a position Nor'Easters fans have gotten used to in recent years. In each of the last two seasons, the team finished atop the division, subsequently reaching the National Semifinals in 2013 and the Conference Quarterfinals the year before. This early season bout with the Rough Riders showcases this year's brand new roster of elite college stars and may even give some insight into whether they can maintain the standard set by their predecessors.
Ocean City Nor'easters
As members of the Premier Development League, the Ocean City Nor'easters give a new crop of elite college soccer stars a taste of pro-level competition each year without forcing them to sacrifice their eligibility. Since its inception in 1996, the club has amassed numerous accolades over the years and long entertained audiences with nifty footwork and the ability to make balls disappear with just a silk handkerchief. Some of these highlights include a perfect 14-0 season in 2005 and five appearances in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Furthermore, former Nor'Easters have gone on to don kits for national teams and pro clubs around the world.
Perhaps most impressive, however, are the club's community outreach efforts and the summer camps it orchestrates for local youth. During these five-day camps, Nor'Easters players coach kids as young as three on soccer fundamentals and illustrate for older kids what it takes to become elite high school and college players.
