The Long Island Rough Riders will be kicking off their season this month in the 2016 Super-Y-League. The Rough Riders have been a member of the SYL since 1999 and this year they will be entering a total of 7 team across the league.
The teams are Boys Under-11 through to Boys Under-16 and Girls Under-13 and Under-14.
The Long Island Rough Riders are always a competitive team in the league and last season saw two of their teams reach great success. The BU14 team made it to the championship but, sadly, came up short. They will look to finish the job this season and be crowned champions of the league.
The GU14 team won the championship in December last season. The girls ended their season with a 4-0 victory against SABA NYC for the championship. A big part of this team’s success was attacking early and staying aggressive.
“We emphasized earlier in the tournament, coming out strong, really taking it to them and playing our game right off the bat.”, said head coach, Meghan Frey.
Frey’s team will look to keep the same intensity as they attempt to repeat as league champions
