Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association to launch ENY Xpressway League in fall 2015
(Via Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association) – The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association has introduced the ENY Xpressway League (ENYXL), which will kick off in fall 2015. The new league will start small with small-sided games in the Under-10 to Under-12 age groups for both boys and girls travel teams.
The five Eastern New York leagues with clubs in New York City––Big Apple Youth Soccer League, Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League, Long Island Junior Soccer League, Metrokids Interregional Soccer League and Staten Island Youth Soccer League––will be contributing teams.
“Our five Downstate leagues asked to start a league where their teams can diversify the competition they play but not have to travel a great distance to go to away games,” commented Eastern New York President Richard Christiano. “The ENY Xpressway League accomplishes this when it kicks off this fall on fields in New York City and on Long Island.”
ENYXL derives its name from the 17 local expressways that connect our soccer clubs and fields so chances are that families will be driving on an expressway in traveling to away games in New York City and Long Island. From the most well-known expressways such as the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, Cross Bronx Expressway, Long Island Expressway and Staten Island Expressway, to those that are not as well-known like the Bruckner, Clearview, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Gowanus, JFK, Lincoln Tunnel, Major Deegan, Nassau, Sheridan, Throgs Neck, Van Wyck, West Shore and Whitestone.
