April 6, 2021-In 2020, the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) organized an XBox Tournament and the champion was Kevin Maldonado of the HBC B05 Fire from the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL).
This April, we are teaming up with our partners in the Empire State, the New York State West Youth Soccer Association, to hold a FIFA 21 E-Cup Challenge. The tournament will be held on Saturday night, April 17, kicking off at 5 pm. There will be two age groups, made up of 8- to 12-year-olds plus teenagers from 13 to 18. Boys and girls are both encouraged to participate.
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 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. For more information, please log on to http://www.enysoccer.com/
