December 2, 2013-The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce that Cheryl Reynolds, who coaches the Yorktown Youth Hurricanes in the 5th, 6th and 7th grade division, has been selected as our Boys Recreation Coach of the Year. This recreation team plays under the umbrella of the East Hudson Youth Soccer League (EHYSL) and Eastern New York.
Cheryl started helping out on Wednesday Night Soccer and fundraising plus soon moved into coaching so she could spend more time with her sons.
"Her team runs like clockwork and she is very organized and energetic," the club’s George Distelhurst said. "She is everything this organization is looking for!"
Cheryl’s husband, John, stated, "Everyone comments on how well organized our team is because of her. She has a great understanding of the boys and what makes them tick. Her enthusiasm is contagious and she makes all the boys feel special. She gets the most out of her team every week."
In addition to coaching, Cheryl ran the concession stand at the Yorktown Youth Soccer Club’s annual intramural tourney plus is past PTA President at Mildred E. Strang Middle School and is actively involved with ASK (Alliance for Safe Kids).
Her husband concluded, "She is truly amazing!"
