In the fall of 2015, grade 4, 5, & 6 soccer teams joined the John Werner Youth Soccer League based out of Arlington, VT. JWYSL has a total of 10 teams playing each other throughout the fall soccer season. The participating towns for JWYSL include Arlington, NorShaft (North Bennington and Shaftsbury), Manchester, West River, Bennington, Cambridge, NY, Berlin, NY, Taconic, NY, Hoosick Falls, NY, and now, Twin Valley. This is a huge shift in our program, however, one that we believe will be very beneficial to our kids and we feel is necessary for our soccer program to progress and to maximize the benefits to our student athletes. There will be approximately 8-10 games played, 4 to 5 games will be played as home games at Twin Valley Elementary School. All games will be played on Saturdays.
Please visit http://johnwernerysl.org/ for more information on this great opportunity that awaits our 4th 5th and 6th grade soccer teams.
For our Pre K, K, and 1st graders we will continue with our Saturday morning clinics where our youngest athletes learn the foundational skills of soccer. We have added new programming this year for our 2nd and 3rd grade players, offering smaller format local games instead of the clinic format from the past. We believe these program changes will better allow for a consistent progression of skills towards the larger 4th, 5th and 6th grade levels of play.
TVYS is excited to offer these improvements to our soccer program and we look forward to the continued expansion of Twin Valley Youth Sports for the young athletes of our community.
