Team & Player Spotlight

Shining a spotlight on our teams and players! Go Rivertowns!


Fall 2022 was a great season for the Lynx (boys born 2012) who won their division! In Spring 2023, two of our 2010 girls teams ended their seasons at the top of the table! Congrats to the Lynx, the Cobras and the Warriors (pictured).


End of Spring Season, 2023

Volunteer parent coach Christian Gonzalez began coaching with Rivertowns when his son Nico was in 5th grade. Of 18 current players on the Rivertowns AYSO Manchester United team, 15 are graduating seniors -- which is a testament to the friendships and bonding that soccer can bring -- and to the recruiting powers of Nico. Many have been on the team for more than 6 years. These athletes have had Saturday training with Coach Chris for a decade and played competitive games against other AYSO high school teams all over the county for the past 4 years. Alongside Chris for the ride was Gerald Cohen, the team's dedicated volunteer referee, and father of players Alex, a senior, and Ben, a rising junior. 

Coach Chris shared his thoughts about his experience, as his son and many teammates' AYSO journey winds down. “It has been a great experience watching these boys grow, not just as players but also as outstanding young men. I will miss them.”

Congratulations to the entire team and its devoted volunteers on an amazing run, and a special shout-out to the team's graduating seniors: Nicolas G., Alex C., Ben R., Michael S., Jack S., Andrew R., Jeff P., Ryan C., Sam M., Henry F., Stefan C., Kyan C., Aneesh N., Yuval G.,  Mel B.

End of Spring Season, 2021

The Galaxy began as a Rivertowns United team nine years ago. Many of the players have been on the team for more than five years and six of the original 11 players were still on the team through Spring 2021, the team’s final season. These athletes have had many accomplishments - they have come in first or second place in their WYSL division nearly every year; they also won the WYSL premier division and represented RUFC in regionals; and they ended Spring 2021 at the top of the table with - another WYSL division win for their final season -- a fitting farewell and a sweet ending on a high note. Laura Hay and Will Jacobs have been the parent coaches from the beginning. David Downs joined as a coach two years later and has been pivotal in helping secure so many great wins.

Head Coach Laura Hay shared her thoughts as the team’s RUFC journey winds down. “Most importantly, these young men have learned lifelong lessons about teamwork, winning and losing, supporting each other on and off the field, and leadership. And while this Galaxy team will no longer exist, our players will carry these lessons throughout their lives. For all nine years we have loved seeing these boys grow while reinforcing a positive culture along the way. What a treasure and an honor to have David Downs on our side. The parents have been wonderful, supportive, and amazing cheerleaders. What a magical experience for all of us - we will remember this team always.”

Congratulations to the entire team and its devoted coaches on an amazing run, and a special shout-out to team’s graduating seniors: Luca D., Daniel E., Dominic F., Luca F., David H., Bryce J., Jakub K., Alec L., Malcolm M., Vincenzo S., and Rob W.!

We wish them all the best as they begin the next phase at colleges including Brown, Cornell, Lehigh, Muhlenberg, NYU, SUNY Albany, SUNY Binghamton, SUNY Oneonta, and others yet to be decided!

Hurricanes Shut Out Fox Premier Team! Belksy on Fire!

On April 11, 2021 -- a cold, rainy Sunday evening -- in Warwick, New York, the Rivertowns United G06 Hurricanes defeated the 2006 Fox Soccer Academy Premier Girls 5-0 to record the first NYCSL win in the history of our Rivertowns United Football Club!

The game was historic for many reasons.  The 'Canes squad, who have played together for seven seasons, notched its first headed-goal ever when Iliana Dimopoulos nodded home for a 1-0 lead -- and then recorded its second-ever goal-by-header five minutes later when Dimopoulos repeated her feat.

The stout defense was led by a strong performance from goalkeeper Sharyn Belsky, pictured below, who recorded a 5-save shutout.  Belsky was alert off her line all game and her distribution was flawless.

The Hurricanes are playing this spring 2021 season in the NYCSL's U15 Girls North Atlantic D1 Blue, and Fox Soccer Academy 2006 Premier Girls has a national ranking just outside the top 1,500 and a NYE ranking of 53.  With the win, the Hurricanes have taken an important first step toward their own national ranking.
