Why play soccer for Herkimer College?
Herkimer has established itself as one of the elite junior college soccer programs in the country. The Generals are known for their entertaining offensive style of play and disciplined defense. The program has won 26 straight Region III Titles (27 overall) and played in 16 NJCAA national championship games, winning 10.
Our Exposure And Opportunities
With the type of success we achieve, both on the field and in the classroom, comes national exposure. Past players have received athletic and academic scholarships to schools such as Syracuse University, Boston College, Ohio State, South Carolina, West Virginia, Coastal Carolina, Hartford, Bowling Green, Binghamton, Southern Connecticut, Lynn, Le Moyne, Barry University, and American International. The program has also produced seven NJCAA National Players of the Year, 11 Region III Players of the Year, three Region III Male Athletes of the Year, and more than 50 All-Americans. Several Generals have played or continue to play professionally.
Our Team Mentality And Discipline
Great team chemistry is expected on and off the field and a high level of commitment and personal discipline are key ingredients to being part of the Herkimer family.
Our Outstanding Experiences
Pre-season begins in mid-August with scrimmages against four-year schools. The Generals open each season with the Coliseum Soccer Club Classic that features four of the top-ranked NJCAA schools in the country.
Herkimer is part of Region III which is one of the biggest and strongest regions in the country. The winner of the Region III playoffs receives an automatic bid to the NJCAA National Championship Tournament.
Our Year-Round Dedication
The off-season program includes team practices and lifting in the winter, and spring outdoor games with four-year schools such as Syracuse University, Colgate University, Hartwick University, Binghamton University, and LeMoyne College. Players receive a summer workout program to follow to ensure that they will be mentally and physically fit coming into pre-season. This year-round process has helped the Generals to be one of the best junior college programs in the country.
Our Commitment To Helping Others
The team is very active in the community. We participate in activities like the Salvation Army’s holiday Adopt-A-Family program as well as the American Heart Association’s Heart Run and Walk, the Make-A-Wish foundation, and the Violence Prevention Awareness Program.
