Scouting for players was done via local college rosters and direct contact with college coaches. At the beginning of the 2011–2012 season, the club came to an agreement with Fairleigh Dickinson University to use University Stadium as the team's home field. Sponsorship agreements were also announced with a shirt sponsorship deal from El Al Israel Airlines in addition All Ways Travel and Data Life.
