Westchester Youth Soccer League Rejoins Eastern New York

By Randy Vogt, Director of Public Relations, Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association
July 18, 2022-The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is thrilled to announce that the Westchester Youth Soccer League (WYSL) is affiliated once again with Eastern New York. The WYSL was previously affiliated under the Eastern New York umbrella from the league's inception in the mid-1970’s until 2014.
“Eastern New York has a lot to offer, including the State Open Cup and the Challenge Cup, which are good fits for our players and teams, as well as more squads to play against,” explained WYSL President Samuel Arnoff. “Our league has many multi-sport athletes that do not just want to play soccer year-round and they play other sports or perhaps they also concentrate on playing a musical instrument too. We have been speaking to Eastern New York President Richard Christiano and US Youth Soccer President Skip Gilbert over the past couple of years about making the switch back to Eastern New York.”
The WYSL registers approximately 15,000 players under the age of 19 in 50 clubs, mainly in Westchester but also in New York City plus Putnam and Dutchess counties. These teams are registered in the WYSL and play in the Westchester Cup, Westchester Premier, Summer League and Camps.
“We are very excited to have the Westchester Youth Soccer League return to Eastern New York,” commented Eastern New York President Richard Christiano. “Centrally-located in Eastern New York, the WYSL programming is as diverse as the many players they serve.”
WYSL President Arnoff. concluded, “The right thing for the kids was to come back to Eastern New York. We’re excited to be back!”
With approximately 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 10 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. For more information, please log on to
