Mentorship Program

Geared towards High School Aged Players

Hudson Valley Crusaders is pleased to introduce our mentorship program beginning in the 2024 season! Stay tuned for a subsequent launch of a youth program! The purpose of this program is to support the development of high school players and prepare them for college soccer. We aim to achieve this by providing them with an experienced leader who will guide them through training and the college soccer recruiting process. Those who have already committed to college are more than welcome to apply too! Mentees will participate in training with the team and are encouraged to come to game day to be on the sideline. Every mentee will be considered part of the Crusaders Reserves and can earn playing time with the first team if they show they are ready.To find out more information on our mentors and how to apply, scroll down.



The application is open to any high school aged player,  committed or uncommitted. Any questions can be directed to
