Washingtonville Soccer Club is pleased to announced that registration for our 2017 Spring In-House and SNOOPY Programs are now open. Further details can be found on our In-House page.
Washingtonville Soccer Club’s Director of Coaching Attila Nyiri is currently attending the FC Barcelona Youth Football Meetings. The two-week event is held yearly for the coordinators and directors of the FC Barcelona youth program to meet and discuss the progress of the youth system for players U8 – U17. While attending the event, Coach Nyiri will be given the opportunity to coach and impart his knowledge to those in attendance through lectures on the “Effectiveness of Tying the Correct Practice Methods to the Right Level of a Players Psychological Development“ and “How Players can Deal with Stress During Practices and Games.”
The event is mainly for those coaches and directors that are employed by FC Barcelona. Coach Nyiri was invited in recognition of his commitment to the Barcelona Method and Style of Play and implementing it in youth soccer programs in the United States.
So far during his visit, Coach Nyiri has had the opportunity to speak with several members of the FC Barcelona staff including Pere Gratacos, Head of Training and Knowledge who is also the head of “La Masia.” “La Masia” is the name used for the FC Barcelona Youth Program. Coach Nyiri also was able to spend time with Joan Vilar, Head of Barcelona Methodology.
A goal of the visit is for Coach Nyiri to begin the groundwork for a future cooperation between the Washingtonville Soccer Club and FC Barcelona.

The Washingtonville Soccer Club is proud to announce two of our Travel Players won the State Championships at the 2016 Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge which was held at West Point on October 23, 2016.
After winning the Regional Round earlier in the day, Jenna Belcher and John Kaste out scored the regional winners from Upstate and Long Island.
The competition is designed for players 9 to 14 years old to demonstrate their skill and accuracy while taking a penalty kick. In the regional and state round, each player is given 25 shots from the penalty spot. The goal is divided into a point grid and players are awarded points by the location of their shot.
Jenna is a member of our '05 Girls Lady Lightning and John a member of our '02 Boys FORCE.
Jenna is the State Champion in the Girls 10 Year Old Division and John in the Boys 13 Year Old Division.
Congratulations to them both on their accomplishment.
