Deer Park Wolfpack after winning the 2015 State Open Cup title
By Randy Vogt, Director of Public Relations, Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association
June 27, 2016-The Deer Park Wolfpack of the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) have won the Boys-Under-15 Eastern New York Premier League (ENYPL) championship during the Spring Season.
With a 7-2-0 record in the ENYPL, this is one of many trophies for Deer Park. The team lifted the 2015 Rocco Amoroso Cup, the trophy for the Boys-Under-14 State Open Cup title in the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA), as well as the Long Island Cup and many tournament titles.
“I believed the team has had the ability to rise to any challenge put before them. This team at Under-10 was LIJSL Division 4 and rose all the way up to win the State Cup last year, which is an example of this ability,” commented Deer Park coach Joe McGarty. The Wolfpack has been together for the past seven years.
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 11 leagues throughout the association, which covers the entire state of New York east of Route 81.

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 turnedaway.
