The Boston Breakers are proud to announce their partnership with Scorpions Soccer Club. With the partnership, all Scorpions girls teams will be re-branded as Boston Breakers Academy teams. The teams range from Under 9, who focus on fundamental training but still play in town, all the way through U23. The teams will compete in the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), National Premier Leagues (NPL), the New England Premiership (NEP), and the Mass. Premier League (MAPLE). With the partnership, it creates the only program of its kind in the country for women’s soccer.
"We are delighted to partner with Scorpions Soccer Club. They are a large and successful organization known for player development, which matches the Boston Breakers philosophy,” Boston Breakers General Manager Lee Billiard said. “As the partnership and program builds, I believe the development pathway we provide players from an early age all the way through to our senior professional team is one not recognized on the female side. Definitely an exciting future.”
Along with current Scorpions management, Boston Breakers players, front office, and coaching staff will be involved in providing a structured player development path with a heavy focus on player and coach development. Scorpions Soccer Club staff will remain intact and operate the day-to-day business with assistance from Boston Breakers front office.
“Scorpions are excited and looking forward to our new partnership with the Boston Breakers, who are obviously a first-class operation,” Scorpions Soccer Club Director Fred Marks said. “This partnership is something we are going to invest in and make the very best of. We are pleased to be associated with such a professional organization."
The Boston Breakers still remain committed to their town partnerships and the development of their programs and players. On Breakers current town partnerships Billiard said "The Boston Breakers remain fully committed to our relationships with local town/community soccer programs and that will not change. The Breakers Academy will not actively recruit players from our partner organizations. We will continue to work with towns at the younger age groups to continue the development of players within their program."
