In the Fall 2010-2011 season Crew competed in the WYSL U-11A division (playing one level up from U10), in the Jersey Area Girls Soccer (JAGS) U-10 division, and in the NY Cup. In the Spring 2011 season, Crew competed in the U10 JSS, the U10 JAGS and the NY Cup. In the 2011-2012 season, Crew played in the U11 JAGS MAPS league and the New York Cup.
As a premier U12 team, in the fall 2012 / spring 2013 season Crew competes at the Eastern Development Program (EDP) and the NY Cup. After a remarkable season, Crew won the NY Cup and got first place in the North Division of EDP
Crew also competes in many premier-level, invitational tournaments in the Northeast. The team's most notable awards have been winning the NY Cup in 2013 and in 2012, the EDP North league in 2013, the 2011 Annandale Premiere Cup in Virginia, and the Elite Championship at the 2011 Delco Tournament in Pennsylvania.
ABOUT THE COACH
The team plays under the direction of coach Jessica Landau-Selvadurai. Jes was born in Somers, New York where she played her first soccer match at age 4. At age 9 her family moved to Colorado Springs, CO where she continued to develop as a youth player. Playing for local clubs, she had the chance to play at the highest levels Colorado offered. Jessica was a four year letter winner for Cheyenne Mountain High School, and in her senior year she was Coach’s All League Second Team.
After graduating she attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, on a Presidential Scholarship to play for Coach Andy Williamson. She graduated Sum cum Laude in Fiber Arts. Senior year she started her career in coaching as the Assistant Coach for the Women’s Varsity Soccer team at Groves High School in Garden City, Georgia.
After college graduation, Jes moved to New York City, where she continued to pursue coaching. In 2006 she coached her first team for Manhattan Soccer Club. Other than the head coach for Crew, Jes is Academy Director for the GU10 program.
Manhattan Soccer Club has become more than a job for Jes; it has also become her family. In the summer of 2009 she married fellow Coach Ray Selvadurai. Their daughter Ella, already a Crew fan, is showing up at some Crew's games, much to the delight of the team.
