The New Jersey WildCats is a Futbol organization designed to develop and promote players to compete in the W-League. We ask our players to practice and train with the promise to play in the W-League if and when they are called upon. We strive to be the best and we ask that all players make themselves available to attend all practices, scrimmages, league play, playoffs, and finals. In order to ensure top performance on the W-Team, we ask that all players that are rostered to compete on the W-Team not to compete on our U23 teams “on W game days.” If you are in ANY of our player pools W-League, U23, or youth Academy teams U19-U15 you are being evaluated for the W-League 18 player roster at all times and can be pulled up at any point.
The WildCats Futbol Club provides top notch training opportunities and demands top notch performance by all of its players. The WildCats believe that mental preparation is the key to our success. So we require all WildCats players to wear WildCats training gear during its 1 – 2 day/week training sessions in order to provide a professional and uniform training atmosphere.
The goals of the NJ WildCats are to make every player that trains and plays with us better, for our W-League team to win the W-League (1 so far), Northeast Conference, and make the playoffs every year, for our U23 teams to win the National Championship (1 so far), win the Region I Championship, and win the NJ State Championship. We are one of the few elite W-League franchises in the country that has won the W-League Championship in 2005 and a U23 National Championship in 2001. Our franchise has a rich history and a lot to live up to for our current players. We ask our current players to commit to the program, work as hard as they can, and give 110% at all times.
The WildCats Futbol Club is a sponsored sports organization that shows its appreciation to its sponsors by encouraging its members to frequent their establishment(s). When the WildCats coaches make arrangements to appear at one of its sponsor’s establishment(s), all W-players will be required to attend and celebrate its success at the establishment. Unfortunately, not all costs are covered by our sponsors. In order to close the gap, we require all U23 players to pay a non-refundable fee of four hundred fifty dollars ($450) payable in two (2) increments ($195 by January 9th and $255 by March 1st). Among other things, the fees will cover the cost for coaching, fields, uniforms, equipment, referee fees, 6 – 8 league games, State Cup, Regional and National play.
Good Luck to all of you, our players, and lets go for it!
Best of luck to all,
Kevin T. McDermott
NJ Wildcats President
