Welcome Matt Guinto
I am beyond excited to be working with Athelite Performance Training, Jenton and the high-level staff that makes up the APT team. Being part of the area's premier training opportunity that brings players from distances as far as my hometown of Syracuse NY( the place I grew up and began to play this beautiful game) surrounding areas and everywhere in between. Jenton has built an incredible relationship here with the local NEPA/ Upstate NY communities and the growth pf the company is a testament to the results driven program that prides itself on building personal relationships and mentoring the clients in all aspects of training. Having built its second top of the line facility in Scott Township will APT to impact so many more players/ clients of all levels to attain the individual goals they have set. I'm just psyched to be a part of it! As the head men's coach at Marywood, one of my goals is to find ways to help improve the level of youth soccer in the area, and I felt joining APT was the best way to do that. I am looking forward to working with all ages, levels, and players, the APT staff and everyone who is part of the APT program.

In that 2019 season, the Brewers posted impressive Liberty League victories over Bard, Union, St. Lawrence, Clarkson, RIT and then 22nd-ranked Ithaca at home in late October. Vassar advanced to the Liberty League Tournament, shouldering a tough 1-1 draw to RIT that saw the Tigers advance on penalty kicks.
