"Soccer is another enhancement to a comprehensive student experience at DSC. The statewide and national excitement over soccer puts DSC on a bright playing field, positioning our institution among top choices for higher education in the region and beyond," said DSC President Tom LoBasso. "Our future soccer stadium is also about community. You will see dozens of local youngsters on this field vying for their best shots in events such as 3v3, 7v7 and other soccer clinics, as well as alumni and guests here for homecoming activities."
During his talk, Athletics Director Will Dunne revealed that the college is hosting the NJCAA National Championship Events Committee on a site visit to consider DSC as host for the NJCAA Men's Division 1 soccer national championship tournament "right here where we are standing today. The bid cycle that we submitted for is 2018, 2019, 2020. This would serve as an economic driver for the city and region."
