Technical Director, Filippo Milano, added that, “Each year OSA FC has finished in a better position in the NPSL than the one before, with the team finishing among the final 16 in the NPSL and qualifying for the Open Cup for the 2nd time in 3 years. This year, the aim is to continue with this trend in the league, with the addition of progressing in the US Open Cup.”
Primavera Youth Team Added
In order to promote success in achieving these goals, the club will be adding an OSA FC Primavera Team. The first tryouts for this will be at the end of May, with the team beginning training in the mornings from June through July.
