The NJ Stallions is proud to announce an affiliation with NJSA 04 (New Jersey Soccer Academy). This official alliance will have two of the Premier NJ Clubs working together in the USSDA, US Soccer Develoment Academy system. Antonio Meza, Director of Coaching for NJSA 04, will join forces with Marcelo Fracchia, Director of Coaching for NJ Stallions, in identifying top NJ Stallions players for Pre-Academy and Academy level play.
With the announcement, our club enters into a new phase combining advanced level training that has become a hallmark of the NJ Stallions, with an opportunity for its players to play at the highest level of competition in the country. The partnership between NJ Stallions and US Development Academy member, NJSA 04 will strengthen a continuing effort to bring the highest level of training available to Northern New Jersey.
NJSA 04 is one of only four academies in New Jersey that are members in the US Development Academy and Pre-Academy leagues. Our combined program will provide serious soccer players one more opportunity to continue on their quest to play soccer at the highest level. Some key benefits include:
- Training and Coaching by USSF “A” licensed coaches
- National exposure to US Olympic/ National team coaches
- Top level Collegiate Scout exposure

NJSA 04 was founded by club President, Tab Ramos; the current U20 US Mens National Team Head Coach. Tab Ramos, together with Antonio Meza, run one of the highest level development programs in the region. For more information please visit the NJSA 04 website.
The NJ Stallions are excited to move into the future with a top Academy like NJSA 04, and are confident that our partnership will set the standard in player development.
