The Sachem Golden Eagles capped their SYSL careers in a resounding manner. They were runner’s up in the Long Island Cup and won both Sportsmanship and U-19 Division 1. The Golden Eagles finished with an 11W-1L-2T record and the goal differential was an outstanding 46 goals for and 15 against in all competitions with 6 shut outs. Lifetime the team had 92 wins 24 ties and 54 losses. They went through a lot of ups and downs in their careers but a core group stuck together and persevered over time. Almost all of the boys are attending college and quite a few are going to play soccer for their college teams.
Coaching and training this team was a collaborative effort. Mike Donack and Stephen Byrne were the primary assistant coaches and Sandy Clavin and Kevin Organ were two of the best parent administrators I have ever been involved with. Sachem legend Frank Schmidt trained the boys until this year and my son Nick trained them in their final season.
I am going to take this opportunity to say good-bye to the coaching ranks of SYSL. This was my third team and it’s time to make way for some younger talent. Thanks to the Golden Eagles for a memorable last season and thanks to SYSL for their support over the years.

To provide a place for the more advanced player (fourth grade and older).
Travel teams are formed for the more advanced player. Selection to a Travel team requires a large commitment on the part of the player and parent. SYSL Travel teams are registered within the Long Island Junior Soccer League, which is the organization governing all travel soccer teams on Long Island. This program requires that you will have to travel throughout Long Island to neighboring clubs for any away games on your schedule. Although travel soccer is a competitive program, our goal is to focus on development, respect, team unity and sportsmanship. Teams are selected via "Try Out" process every June.
Congratulations to the following SYSL travel teams for their success during Columbus Day Weekend: BU11 BULLS(1st place East Islip Fall Classic). The following were played at Northport: GU11 SPEED(2nd place), GU12 EXPLOSION(1st place), GU13 BLAST(1st place), GU14 THUNDERBOLTS(2nd place), and the SURGE(2nd place).
