YOUTH LEAGUE : Soccer and Volleyball

Manager: Bohdan Pryjmak;

Our mission is to provide the Ukrainian  youth of NYC a place to  play soccer and volleyball while maintaining a focus on fundamentals and having fun.  We will be be providing quality coaching and continual skill development throughout all levels.  In staying the course of our mission, our plan is to focus on the continual skill development of the player and team work as a whole.  Our goal is to have every player noticeably develop both their technical skills and game knowledge throughout the course of the season.  In order to accomplish these golas, we will rely on the coaches to provide instruction that replicates our philosophy.  Coaches will emphasize the pursuit of fun, allow kids to be creative and take chances in order to expand and improve their skill sets, while pushing them to play outside of the comfort zone. 

We welcome your participation!  If interested to play or to coach, please contact Bohdan.

Youth league soccer will start up again on May 22nd, 2021 for registered players from our previous season.  We will be in touch when registration opens for new players. Volleyball is temporarily on hold due to COVID-19. More details soon about when we will start volleyball again, along with some new fun activities for the kids! As of May 22nd, practices will take place 4:30-6pm at the East River Park; John V. Lindsay East River Park Athletic Field -Grand Street Mini Soccer Field (between Delancey and Grand street between the FDR drive and the East River).
