As many of you know, we took significant steps over the past year to repair some of our fields. Doherty 1 and Doherty 2 were shut down for the Fall 2016 season so the weeds could be fully extinguished and the fields could be replanted. We are happy to announce that both D1 and D2 will be back in use for the Spring 2017 season. To make up for the loss of Doherty in the fall, we established a relationship with Tymor Park. Not only did we use the existing full size Tymor 1 field in the fall, but we also created a 2nd full size field at Tymor that was primarily used by our Limited Distance Travel program. The Club is happy to announce that at the end of this past fall season, we added a 3rd full size field at Tymor, next to Tymor 1 where a rarely used baseball field used to exist. If the weather cooperates and the seed germinates, we will have access to a 3rd full size field size at Tymor. Prior to the fall season, we worked with both the Parks & Rec as well as the Highway Department to install better drainage along the perimeter of Beyer Park Field. In the fall, we re-introduced Beyer Park for our younger travel teams and it seems to have gone well. We also added a full size field at Beekman Elementary School and received very positive feedback on its condition. In addition to Doherty, Tymor, Beyer, and BES, we of course have TCP. TCP continues to have the greatest usage because our entire In House program plays at TCP. This is done so that on Saturday mornings families do not have to run from park to park to see their children play. Unfortunately, this also means TCP requires the most maintenance. We continue to work with Beekman Parks to keep up with the usage, and they do a great job. Adding additional fields to our rotation will greatly help the condition of TCP by allowing practices to start later in the spring, thus giving new seed time to properly germinate. We will also rotate fields for the spring so that the heavily worn goalie boxes will no longer be goalie boxes.
The Beekman Youth Soccer Club is pleased to announce that we will be holding our 16th Annual Beekman Cup Tournament on Columbus Day Weekend. Girls play Sat, Oct 8 and Boys play Sun, Oct. 9.

The Beekman Youth Soccer Club is proud to announce travel tryouts for the 2016/2017 season. The Club is growing fast as evidenced by the creation of new travel teams, across several age groups, and the return of most of our existing travel teams. If you are interested in taking your soccer experience to the next level playing on a Beekman travel team is the way to go.
