By Randy Vogt, Director of Public Relations, Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association
March 18, 2019-The non-profit Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce that Miguel Castro has joined our team at our office in Rockville Centre. He is our new Communications Associate.
Miguel is working part-time with us until he graduates from SUNY-Old Westbury this May. The Elmont resident is Media Communications Associate at the college, working for OWWR (Old Westbury Web Radio) and The Catalyst newspaper.
Born in Colombia and speaking both English and Spanish fluently, Miguel has a soccer background, having played every position except goalkeeper with the Franklin Square Raiders of the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL). When he was 16 years old, he realized that he was not going to be the next Messi so he decided to devote himself to the media part of the sport.
Additionally, Miguel is a big fan of Liverpool and the United States Men’s National Team.
With over 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.
