League History

In 2007, our inaugural year, was the creation of the first New York State West (NYSW) sanctioned youth soccer league in Northern New York.  In 2007, we had five (under-12) boys teams and six (under-12) girls teams.  Five new clubs were formed and have become affiliated with NNYYSL and NYSW.

In 2010, the NNYYSL had 70 teams with 12 affiliated clubs. The growth in soccer by players, coaches, parents and fans has exploded.  There is a true community spirit of "Building a Soccer Community

In 2013, the league created a U7 & U10 program. Over 100 youths participated, playing two days a week from mid June though the end of July.  This season also brought about the addition of a new club.  Our end of the season festival was reformatted as a one day playoff day held at the Indian River High School.  This was a great way to end the season with not only a regular season winner but also playoff day winner.

NNYYSL is one of the few remaining travel leagues in NYSWYSA.
