HARRISON, N.J. – The Red Bulls announced Monday a  youth development partnership with the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association.

“We are excited to add ENYYSA to the Red Bulls family as a Youth Development Partner,” said Dave Jervis, Red Bulls senior director of training programs. “Through this new program, we will be able to extend the Red Bulls’ deep connection to the New York youth soccer community, providing players access to a high-level training environment and a direct connection to the Red Bulls development system.”

Through the partnership, a Young Olympians program will be created acting as a stepping-stone to the full Olympic Development Program with the goal being to develop young talent and expose them to the ENYYSA alongside the Red Bulls player development pathway.

Training locations will be located throughout Queens, Staten Island, Hudson, Nassau and Suffolk counties.

“ENYYSA is thrilled to begin this new journey with the New York Red Bulls,” ENYYSA president Richard Christiano said. “We look forward to continuing to enhance the development of our youth players.”

Each player will have the opportunity to be outfitted in an ENYYSA/Red Bull New York branded uniform.

One team of boys and girls from all the targeted regions will be selected to represent the program in a regional festival and tournament at the Red Bulls Training Facility.
