The Levittown Gunners have enjoyed a great deal of success in nearly a decade as a youth soccer team.
This spring, they added the Boys Under-17 Eastern New York Premier League championship to their overflowing trophy case. They scored four times as many goals as surrendered, 28-7, in their four wins and one loss during the recently completed ENYPL season.
Levittown has previously won division championships in the Long Island Junior Soccer League and Eastern Development Program (EDP) plus State Cups and a range of premier level tournaments. Last month, six Gunners represented the U.S. in Barcelona at the World 5-A-side championships as the winners of the Gatorade US National 5-A-Side championship.
“From their start as a youth team at 10 years old playing in the LIJSL, the Gunners have committed themselves to a brand of soccer that is focused on continual player development and preparation for playing in college,” Levittown coach Gary Book said. “Their dedication on the field and in the classroom has been exemplary as the boys have achieved a level of understanding and application that portrays itself vividly on the field and has been admired by the college coaching community.”
