(Via ENYYSA) – The five Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) 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––support the Eastern New York Xpressway League (ENYXL), whose inaugural season kicked off in September and concludes this month.

“Our five Downstate leagues asked to start a league where their teams can diversify the competition they play in but not have to travel a great distance to go to games,” commented Eastern New York President Richard Christiano. “The ENY Xpressway League accomplished this when it kicked off this fall on fields in New York City and on Long Island.”

Six teams are competing in the ENYXL Boys-Under-10 Division, 10 squads are playing in the Boys-Under-11 while the Boys-Under-12 Division has four teams. Because of the diversity of teams from different leagues, there was concern about competition but nearly all games have been very competitive. Plans are afoot to add girls divisions in 2016.

ENYXL, using the slogan of the Roadway to Great Soccer, derives its name from the 17 local expressways that connect our soccer clubs and fields so chances are that families drive on an expressway in traveling to games. 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. The first “e” of expressway was dropped in the new league’s name to create the unusual acronym of ENYXL.
