The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce that we will be launching the ENYYSA National Qualifying League in the spring of 2023. This premier league is by invitation only and longtime soccer ambassadors Jim Vogt and Jim Kilmeade, the Co-Directors of the league and working under the guidelines of US Youth Soccer, will be culling and analyzing match results to invite the top teams in Eastern New York.

The ENYYSA National Qualifying League is from Under-13 to Under-17, both boys and girls, and 8-10 teams will make up each division. Just below the US Youth Soccer National League PRO (Player. Recruitment. Opportunity.), there will be promotion and relegation from the National Qualifying League into National League PRO.

“We are looking to work with each of Eastern New York’s nine leagues to get to the point that every one of the National Qualifying League games will be showcases, for the players and their teams,” explained Co-Director Jim Vogt. “We are particularly interested in finding that one great team in clubs that are shut out of other premier formats because the other squads in that club are not nearly as good.”

“With the National Qualifying League, we are trying to emulate what US Youth Soccer is currently offering its best players, putting egos aside and giving the game back to the players,” added Co-Director Jim Kilmeade.

National Qualifying League games will be played only during the spring so not to interfere with the fall high school season in New York. Teams that win their division will receive automatic advancement into the quarterfinals of the State Open Cup the following spring.

Additionally, all National Qualifying League players will automatically qualify for the second round of tryouts for Eastern New York’s Olympic Development Program (ODP).

“With the kick off of the National Qualifying League next spring, Eastern New York will have a clear pathway into National League PRO,” stated Eastern New York President Richard Christiano. “We look forward for our best players to play top competition in our league without ever having to leave New York State.”

For more info about the league, please contact Eastern New York at 516-766-0849.

lol.. you qualify for second round of ODP tryouts if you happen to play on one of these teams, but if you get selected to interregional or national ODP camp, you still need to do all rounds of tryouts. Makes sense...

1. You have things reversed. It is EDP trying to compete with ENYYSA.
2. EDP is NOT a New York League. They are a New Jersey League.
3. For reference please review the following 2 links and get up to speed.
4. For those playing in EDP I still think many will face issues playing your games on Long Island and elsewhere in ENYland this coming season.

Every season Larry keeps saying there will be no EDP on Long Island and then EDP keeps surviving.

EDP will survive as Long Island is not their only area where they run leagues. The point you are missing is that EDP is NOT a New Ork league. If you bothered to comprhend what I have been writing you would know that this matter has been and continues to be a serious pain in the ass to USYSA, and this league and its pathway is the start of more changes to come.

Did you know (no, you don't) that this a serious matter that is being discussed at the highest levels of USYS and many other state associations besides ENYYSA.

I still say there are issue yet to be finalized as arbitrations and legal wrangling continues to go on. Next time you have a snide know-nothing comment have the balls to say who you are instead of being a useless shill or malcontent. Maybe then you can be taken seriously.

This league sounds great except the free pass on ODP to second round. That makes no sense at all. ODP is about individual merit, not which team you play for. That’s just absurd.

It’s not going to be great it’s another league. ENYYSA picked 2 guys who are completely out of touch with youth soccer to run a new league.

Once again, great job by ENYYSA missing the ball. They had a chance years ago to try and compete with Gary Grossman but didn’t, then they had a chance to compete with ECNL but didn’t and now they come up with this league being run by two guys who are older then you Larry!

Isn't there already a way to automatically qualify for NL PRO through the NL North Atlantic Conference? So they'd be looking to either get teams/clubs to pull out of the NL to do this or finding 8-10 other top level teams that are playing currently where? Seems like the landscape is constantly changing and hard to keep up with what's what anymore

I understand that it's a bit confusing and I'm going to get better clarification for everyone from ENYYSA. It seems that USYSA and the folks over at EDP are budding heads, and that there are changes by the current USYSA administration as it regards their relationship with EDP.

From what I can gather from a few cryptic conversations is that the State association's, and in this case ENYYSA, that they will be taking the lead and so be the on the safe side follow what you're reading from the official Eastern New York releases such as the original post to this thread.

EDP North Atlantic division would be watered down if the NY teams move to this new league. All the top team are from NY it seems more so than CT and NJ

That's the point. USYSA wants teams to move back to their State Associations in lieu of EDP. Remember, EDP is an out of state league and getting refs to play on Long Island and the Greater NYC area will be an issue.....caveat emptor.

There’s something else going on here. USYS has a contract with EDP to manage each of the Region 1 National Conferences (New England, North Atlantic, Mid Atlantic, and South Atlantic). If it wants teams to return to play under their respective state associations, all it has to do is stop using EDP to manage its leagues. If ENYYSA creates a league to directly compete with the North Atlantic Conference, it doesn’t make sense that it would be done with the imprimatur of USYS.

So now I'm confused - doesn't USYS ultimately run the National League or are we not talking about the new league trying to take that over, and this is really about the New York Club Soccer league (which is really just another regular league with very few teams at that top level). None of the other NL conferences are for just one state, and that's where the National League PRO feeds from - so does USYSA want teams moving back to the State Asso or does ENYYSA want that?? Doesn't make sense that USYS would want to hurt one of their conferences by allowing a State Asso to create a league that basically competes for the same top teams.... if they did, it would just weaken the NL North Atlantic Conference and their brand.

Let me be very clear. All of what you and will see is totally sanctioned, and blessed by USYSA. Let me go one step further that the contract with USYSA was done with the previous USYSA management, and the new sheriffs in town, in my educated opinion, will not be renewing the deal without some major significant changes. Let's just say that the EDP soccer whores made USYSA their bitches, again, my opinion.

Maybe post the actual release next time....you don't advance right from this new league to NL PRO, you advance to the NL conference - which then you would get to National League PRO - I knew it didn't sound correct.

FRISCO, Texas (July 12, 2022) — The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is pleased to announce that we will be launching the ENYYSA National League Conference Qualifying League in the spring of 2023. Access to the State Premier League will be via application and subsequent collection of team performance analysis carried out by respected soccer ambassadors and Co-Directors of the league Jim Vogt and Jim Kilmeade. The League will also work under the guidance of US Youth Soccer with a goal to provide a clear and understandable team and player pathway from Grassroots to Elite levels of play.

The ENYYSA National League Conference Qualifying League is available for boys and girls teams in the 13U to 17U age groups. Each age group will consist of between eight to 10 teams and will provide teams with qualification opportunities to either the USYS North Atlantic Conference or USYS Mid Atlantic Conference, which on behalf of the USYS National League are managed by EDP Soccer. The National League Conferences present teams with a chance to earn their place into National League P.R.O., which annually provides top league finishers with direct qualification to the USYS National Championships.

"It is important we provide more opportunities for players to earn their place in the National League Conferences. The ENYYSA National League Conference Qualifier will not only localize play but also ensure the right competition and game day environment occurs at every game,” said Simon Collins, USYS National League Commissioner. “Having the experience and professionalism of both Jim Vogt and Jim Kilmeade gives me great confidence that the players’ needs will come first. I look forward to seeing the league grow and further enhance the surrounding National League Conferences.”

“In a very confusing soccer landscape, Eastern New York State Association feels the time is right to unite the nine affiliate member leagues and provide elevated opportunities for their teams and players," explained Co-Director Jim Vogt. “There are times that players or clubs are not afforded the same opportunities. By the unification of the nine leagues, we hope to provide a team access to the next level based on their performance on the field – following the National League’s hashtag of #earnyourplace.”

“With the ENYYSA National League Qualifier League, we are trying to emulate what US Youth Soccer is currently offering its best players, putting egos aside and giving the game back to the players,” added Co-Director Jim Kilmeade.

ENYYSA National League Qualifier League games will be played only during the spring so not to interfere with the fall high school season in New York. Teams that win their division will receive automatic advancement into the quarterfinals of the State Open Cup the following spring.

Additionally, all players in the ENYYSA National League Qualifier League will automatically qualify for the second round of tryouts for Eastern New York’s Olympic Development Program (ODP).

“With the kickoff of the ENYYSA National League Qualifier League next spring, Eastern New York teams will have a clear pathway into either the North Atlantic or Mid Atlantic Conference of the National League,” stated Eastern New York President Richard Christiano. “We look forward for our best players to play top competition in our league without ever having to leave New York State.”

The paragraph from the OP (below) isn't correct, so either it was cut or where ever you got the initial release from they realized it wasn't what they thought USYS was allowing the league to be and it was changed. There is no direct linkage to the NL PRO - win the league and get access into the NL (likely 2nd division), so its below the NL not NL PRO, that's a huge difference.

"The ENYYSA National Qualifying League is from Under-13 to Under-17, both boys and girls, and 8-10 teams will make up each division. Just below the US Youth Soccer National League PRO (Player. Recruitment. Opportunity.), there will be promotion and relegation from the National Qualifying League into National League PRO."

SO maybe the league will be a decent option instead of the Long Island heavy first division of NYCS - I highly doubt any LI teams will be doing it....

What I posted was a cut and paste directly from ENYYSA. As far as your snide comment about your doubts about LI teams, jealous much or is this new league interfering with your soccer business🖕
