NEW YORK, NY, October 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Native New York City resident Albert Cyprys is always working on finding new and innovative ways to give back to his community. It is for this reason that Albert Cyprys recently founded a youth soccer league that spans his own neighborhood as well as surrounding neighborhoods. At first, participation in this youth soccer league was quite small, but Albert Cyprys is pleased to see that his idea is growing into a real project.
"I am extremely committed both to an active lifestyle and to my community," says Albert Cyprys
about why he started up the youth soccer league. "I really wanted to figure out a way to give back that would be fun for everyone involved. I love soccer and I also love working with kids!"
About the soccer league itself, Albert Cyprys notes that it has really taken off of the ground. Albert Cyprys muses that he believes that there was a need to be filled in his own community: that of a soccer league for young people that did not focus intently on competitiveness, but rather casual playing for simple enjoyment of the sport as well as for building skills and getting out and being active. Albert Cyprys
believes that many young people are afraid that they do not have the skills for competitive sports or are too shy to try it out. This is the purpose that the youth soccer league serves.
"Success was limited at first," notes Albert Cyprys. He believes that this is because information about his youth soccer league was relayed largely through word of mouth, but once there was some interest, the project began to pick up, says Albert Cyprys.
"I think kids did not realize at first that I am not out to 'whip them into shape,' nor am I interested in collecting dues or setting more rules than they can count," adds Albert Cyprys
. "I want to show young people that getting out and playing as part of a team can be fun and casual - it certainly does not have to be scary." Albert Cyprys also believes that his success comes from recognizing and working with children of all skill levels.About:
