PUMA welcomes the Albany Alleycats Club as a member of the PUMA TCC program based on their outstanding on-field accomplishments! The Alleycats have been with PUMA going on 7 years and we are ecstatic to have them join our elite PUMA TCC program. The club has teams ranked top in the country, to mention a few; the girls U15 Blackcats ranked 25th, U17 girls Lynx ranked 30th, U13 girls 99/00 ranked 90th, and the U18 boys Pumas ranked 40th.
Both the Alleycats girls U13-U18 and boys U15-U18 teams finished at the top of nearly every tournament they competed in in 2012. The Alleycats girls U13 99/00 and U17 Lynx teams were also named the Eastern New York State Cup Champions!
The accomplishments do not stop there; Alleycats players are at the top of their game. Meghan Doyle of the girls U18 Ocelots signed with Notre Dame and was also selected to the US Region 1 match in Portugal. Ilana Albert, of the U14 Redcats, and Ya Ya Van Ness, of the U13 99/00, have been invited to the US Youth Soccer Association Inter-regional Development Camp. This is a national evaluation camp for selection to the US U14 National Team. Also, the U18 boys Pumas, Ethan Gunty, was named 1 of 77 NSCAA All-American players of 2012. Congratulations on all your awards and achievements Alleycats!
