LIJSL To Hold Moment Of Silence Ahead Of Fall Season Opening Weekend On September 10-11

At the recent Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) Annual General Meeting on August 6, it was unanimously agreed to have a moment of silence to honor the victims of 9/11 before every game on the weekend of September 10 and 11, 2022. 

“We all know people who died on 9/11, including those in the soccer community, so we will once again honor them by having a moment of silence,” ENYYSA President Richard Christiano said. “None of our current youth players were alive then so I hope that our gesture will lead them to ask questions of their parents and find out more about that tragic day.”

Sept. 10-11 is the opening weekend of the 2022 LIJSL fall season.
