Ferndinand Picariello was born in 1966 in Uruguay, where he played as a youth in Club Atlético Peñarol. In 1974, Picariello's family started their roots in the United States -they lived in Jersey City, NJ. Ferdinand started playing with the very first leagues that started in Jersey City. Through his hard work and determination, he was recruited to play for the New York Cosmos youth divisions.
In 1999, he founded an adult soccer league, JCHASL, which has served over 5,000 players in Jersey City. As a supplement to the adult league, in 2011, a youth non-profit organization was incorporated to serve youth players in the community. In 2013, JCHASL Soccer School was officially recognized as a 501(c)(3).
