In a nutshell, it was rainy, then sunny, then rainy again! Our ASC teams maintained their focus and held their own in league play. We were truly excited to offer the opportunity for our U14 and older teams to play on The College of St. Rose Plumeri field.
Some highlights of the season:
Our U8 teams received compliments from other teams about their character, conduct and increased skills from the beginning of the season to the end. That's what it's all about. They hosted our fourth annual U8 friendly the last weekend of April. It was a great day!
Our U10 girls and boys were lead by some of our best developmental coaches Gary Wright and Jackson Sekhobo. These teams enhanced their skills and started learning the greater concepts of soccer.
U12 Girls held a strong showing all season and finished clinching second place in CDYSL league play.
U12 Boys in Division 2 and 3 claimed their second place title at the end of the season. They highlighted their talents at multiple tournaments in the area throughout the year.
U14 Boys had a wonderful season in the Division 1 level of play for CDYSL. They received trophies for their first place finish. They also had a chance to play in the Empire Cup in June. This is an honor bestowed on high quality teams. Congratulations!
Our U14 and U17 girls teams had some injuries that sidelined their play throughout the season but they fought hard. Both teams finished strong with beating some of the higher ranked teams.
Our U16 boys teams had a growing season. They are a fun team to watch. We are excited to cheer them on during their Albany High School soccer games.
Our U19 team coached by Dave Weiss, Albany High's Varsity coach, gave an opportunity for us to support our older students. Team member Tyler Stempsey was honored with the CDYSL scholarship.
We are looking forward to the 2013-2014 season!
