March 22, 2019-The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce tryouts for our Young Olympians program in partnership with the Red Bulls.
The tryouts will be held on Sunday, April 7 at five venues in New York State:

Nassau County: Peter Collins Soccer Park, 1425 Old Country Road, Plainview, NY 11803
Suffolk County: Pro Game United, 759 Long Island Avenue, Deer Park, NY 11729
Boys and girls born in 2009 will try out between 4:00 and 5:30 pm while boys and girls born in 2008 try out from 5:30 to 7:00 pm, at all five venues. Tryout cost is $35, which covers April 7 as well as the second round of tryouts on April 14 (for those players who are invited back).
The Young Olympians Program, designed specifically for boys and girls born in 2008 and 2009, provides Eastern New York’s nine affiliated youth leagues the opportunity to send its best players to train in the program, providing a connection between Eastern New York's Olympic Development Program
(ODP) and the New York Red Bull Youth Programs. Kids will be selected for the multi-session program after tryouts and will wear the blue, yellow and white Eastern New York ODP uniform with a Red Bulls logo on the right sleeve.
“The Young Olympians program is to give players a feel for ODP and we are delighted to welcome back the Red Bulls for our second year as partners,” commented Eastern New York ODP Chairperson Jim Volpe. “We have expanded the program by adding an age group.“
