The Blues to continue building around a strong core 

The Blues 2009 team is excited to continue its growth through player development with a core group of players having competed in 5v5 and 7v7 games that past couple of seasons.   In addition, the team has spent countless hours on the pitch learning the game, improving their soccer skills, making friends and enjoying each other.   The team is seeking other highly motivated like-minded 2009 players looking to enhance their soccer experience.

Teams train twice a week during the 12-week Fall & Spring seasons.  During the winter, the team focuses on technical training once a week during a 10-week period.  The Blues compete in EDP-5v5 & MOSA-7v7 in addition to playing in indoor & outdoor tournaments.

The team is managed by Vinny Farina, Director of Training-Millstone United.  Vinny works with a number of teams in MUTS as well as the Recreation Department programs.   Vinny has a MBA from Rutgers and is a Certified Project Management Professional through PMI.  Vinny holds his D-USSF license as well as the La Liga Methodology 3 certification.  He is currently pursuing his C-USSF license.  Other licensed professional trainers are also brought in to work with the teams throughout the year.

The Blues are coached by Dmitry Golob who is a retired professional international soccer player who competed in the Ukraine and Russia.   Dmitry has an extensive and diverse youth soccer coaching background. He has worked with youth players in the US and abroad for the past 30 years.  Dmitry served in many coaching and training capacities with club and academy teams.

Over the years, Coach Dmitry developed his own approach, techniques and curriculum that gives him an edge over the traditional coaching methods. His approach is designed to engage the brain, requires constant scanning of the field, emphasizes movement in different directions while receiving and passing. Coach Dmitry’s training will help a player increase his/her speed of play and decision making. He strives to make the player perform in tight spaces under severe opponent pressure.  Different aspects of the game will be covered at each training session that the players can take to the game.

Coach Dmitry’s alumni list includes players currently playing college soccer as well as nationally and internationally in Europe.  He is truly a gentleman on and off the field.

The team’s objectives evolve around player development.  The coaches strive to provide players a forum where they can learn the game, make friends, improve technical/tactical skills while most importantly having fun and becoming fans of the sport.
