Rip Van Winkle Soccer Club / Northern Catskill Youth Association


We are a non-profit volunteer organization whose purpose is to promote the sport of soccer, to develop each soccer player to the maximum of his or her ability and goals, and to foster a spirit of sportsmanship and fellowship within and among its members. Keeping in mind that we want to develop players, we also recognize that it has to be fun so that the kids enjoy the experience and develop a lifelong passion for the sport. Our home practices and games are located in the Cairo-Durham School district and we accept players from any district in New York State.
Rip Van Winkle wants to thank the Greene County Youth Grant for its $5,000 donation to help build our new Soccer Fields!
