In the absence of a true 2020 NEPSAC season, players are losing valuable recruiting opportunities. The Northeast Soccer Jamboree, held each September at Loomis Chaffee, comes to mind, as do the year-end championships, which aren't taking place.
Teams are still training and scrimmaging where possible, making the most of restraints imposed by the COVD-19 pandemic. It's not ideal, but they're getting creative amid a tough set of circumstances.
These dynamics impact seniors and PGs at New England-based prep schools the most. This might be their last window to get seen, and real-time games are the best recruiting platform.
Hope's not lost, though, and that's why we're spotlighting 10 uncommitted Class of 2021 players across New England. Be sure to check out our full commit database here, and any recruiting updates can be sent to [email protected].
