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.

Preceding his return to the United States in 1998, Coach Nyiri spent time in Germany as head and assistant coach to a myriad of professional, semi-professional, and youth soccer associations. While in Spain, he worked closely with Laureano Ruiz (former coach of FC Barcelona), as a head coach, personal assistant, instructor, and translator.
Coach Nyiri will be incorporating the various methods and strategies he has acquired throughout his soccer career, especially from his experience with Laureano Ruiz, with our players and coaches. This will begin with Coach Nyiri organizing our upcoming tryouts on May 7, 11 and 14, 2016. Coach Nyiri will also hold camps this summer based on the Barcelona Style of play. The first will occur June 27-July 1, 2016 at our Shaw Rd. Complex in New Windsor NY.
