April 8, 2014-The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association's (ENYYSA) Facebook page went live in February 2013. In the past 14 months, nearly 17,000 have liked us on Facebook and they are receiving daily updates on our Olympic Development Program, Premier League, State Cup and special events plus Eastern New York programs such as TOPSoccer, scholarships, coaching education, referee courses and many other important items.
You can log on to the Facebook page here:
By comparison, the Facebook page of our parent organization, the United States Youth Soccer Association, has 10,000 more likes than we do but they are a national body and we are a state organization. And we have nearly 7,000 more likes than the Facebook page of another national youth soccer organization, US Club Soccer.
We hope that you “like” our Facebook page, which was designed by Fuse Marketing, a youth marketing firm with offices in Manhattan and Burlington, Vermont. Eastern New York has contracted Fuse to develop our social media and mass media presence to insure that we have in place a professional channel of information distribution to all our members.
With 123,843 youth soccer players––68,587 boys and 55,256 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 11 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 Special Children. 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.
