WHY SOUTH SHORE SELECT: “In my years of living in Massachusetts, Select has always been known as a tight knit community that produces incredible soccer players.  I couldn’t say no when I had the chance to join the Select family and see first hand how this club provides opportunities for kids to become strong, confident and well rounded individuals, while helping them reach their potential as soccer players”

Ally Sentnor and Lily Reale have been working hard with the U.S. U17 National Team and are striving to make the qualifying roster that will be named later in the spring of 2020.  Both players earned All-American honors this past January at the United Soccer Coaches Convention.  Congrats to well earned national honors!

Sophie Reale and Sophie Rosas traveled to Spain with the 2004 US Youth Soccer East Region ODP team this past year.  They beat RCD Espanyol 3-2, Vilafranca FC 3-0, and Seagull CF 5-1.  Both players are on the Select 04DA squad, super proud to have them represent the Club overseas!
