RECREATIONAL SOCCER

 

I hope you all are having a great summer. 2019/20 Rec Soccer Registration is currently open. The Rec Soccer board has been working hard to get the teams ready for our upcoming season. We still need some coaches to ensure each registrant has an opportunity to play. If you feel you lack the experience to coach, the US Soccer Federation will be back out later in August to conduct coaches training.

 

Rec Soccer is introducing a new program this year, Tots Soccer. Tots Soccer will be a multi-week program for children 3-5 years old. Sessions will be held on Saturdays and include some basic skill building drills. More information to follow.

 

We are always looking for new board members to help our program. We don't care where you are from or how much expertise you have with soccer. If you have a good attitude and are willing to work to make our program better, we would love to have you. We usually meet the first Monday of the month. Email RecSoccer@saa-online.com for more information.

TRAVEL BASEBALL

The Flyers 2019 Spring/Summer season is officially over and Flyers teams are looking forward to competing in fall ball at either Heritage or Melas Park beginning in August.

A big congrats to the Flyers 12u Blue team that just returned from Cooperstown All Star Village with a 6-2 record finishing 10th out of 60 teams. The team made it to the last day of play and went further than any Flyers team since the 2010 team. Flyers lost to the eventual champion from California 9-6 which was that teams toughest game until the last. The Flyers organization is very proud of the boys for their great showing and representation of the program in New York.

Another great accomplishment from this past season was 9u Blue. That team went 39-3 for the season and was undefeated in MSBL A league as well as the end of season tournament winning the championship game. Their record in a tough league as well as in tournaments they played in throughout the season is a huge accomplishment and deserves to be recognized.

Tryouts for the 2020 season was a huge success. There were over 200 plus kids trying out for the program and there are still parents reaching out wanting to join. The program would like to welcome 8u coach Cornell Caldwell as well as new 9u Blue coach Michael Noe. The program is also very close to adding a third 10u team as well as a second 13u team for the upcoming season. More details to come.

Congrats to all Flyers teams on the 2019 season .
