Soccer training underway at CNYFSC

The second session of Youth Soccer games and skills training begins soon at Central New York Family Sports Centre (CNYFSC).

The CNYFSC Youth Soccer season for ages 5 to 15 years old will be held from Jan. 30 and 31 through April 24 and 25.

"The first session has been a successful one, said the CNYFSC Program Coordinator Jeff Knittel. "All of the players are learning the game while getting great exercise in the winter months. The coaches have done a great job of making it fun and competitive for all the players."

"The games will be used as another training tool to help each player maximize his/her potential," Knittel added. "Player Development is the number one priority. We believe at this level players should get an opportunity to play equally and learn in an enjoyable environment."

CNYFSC Youth Soccer game information

The CNYFSC Youth Soccer games will be played every Saturday or Sunday beginning Jan. 30 and 31 (day is determined by age group). Each player will receive nine games and the season will end Jan. 23 or 24 with playoffs. Games will begin anytime between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. and last approximately 50 minutes (two 25-minute halves).
