June 13, 2020-With no organized soccer games or training currently taking place in New York State because of the coronavirus outbreak, the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) has been thinking outside the box to improve local youth soccer.
So Director of Coaching Tim Bradbury, along with our excellent instructional staff, has been hosting Webinar Weekends. On Friday nights, webinars are posted and are designed for coaches, club and/or league administrators (pretty much anyone involved in player development) to grow their knowledge base, gain new ideas and make new connections.
Queensborough United SC President, Director of Coaching and Founder Sean Peckett discussed how he’s keeping his players engaged and touching the ball through virtual team training sessions
B/W Gottschee coach Michael O’Neill spoke about how getting to know each player and treat him/her as an individual improves the overall performance of the team
Sports psychologist Dan Abrahams talks about performance techniques
The Weekend Webinars are continuing in June.
With approximately 100,000 youth soccer players––both boys and girls––and more than 25,000 volunteers, the non-profit Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) stretches from Montauk Point, Long Island to the Canadian border. Members are affiliated with nine leagues throughout the association, which covers the entire state of New York east of Route 81. ENYYSA exists to promote and enhance the game of soccer for children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 19 years old, and to encourage the healthy development of youth players, coaches, referees and administrators. All levels of soccer are offered––from intramural, travel team and premier players as well as Children With Special Needs. No child who wants to play soccer is turned away. ENYYSA is a proud member of the United States Soccer Federation and United States Youth Soccer Association.
