FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TORONTO LYNX U17 BOYS SAIL TO VICTORY AT THE COLUMBUS CUP IN NEW YORK
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2007 (TORONTO, ON) The Toronto Lynx Juniors program opened the 2007 Fall Showcase Season on a high note over the Thanksgiving weekend with a U17 Boys tournament win at the prestigious Columbus Cup showcase tournament in Brooklyn, New York. The Junior Lynx U16 Boys also distinguished themselves at the event, reaching the semi-finals. The performances capped off a strong weekend for the Lynx Juniors program at the annual tournament which attracts many collegiate coaches from around the United States in search of potential recruits for their NCAA programs.
Toronto Lynx Academy Director Duncan Wilde was especially pleased with the performance, noting "Our boys applied themselves very well in tough conditions in New York. It was extremely hot for most of the weekend, and with all the games being played on field turf it created a very demanding challenge for the players. We also have brought in several new recruits to the squads and it is exciting to watch them develop as we prepare our program for the 2008 season."
Kamran Dehreyah and John Costa took charge of the two squads for the weekend and will now shift their focus on to preparations for the Wallkill College Showcase to be held in Upstate New York in early November. The coaches have a limited number of spaces left for elite players wishing to participate in the Junior Boys Fall Program. Interested players should contact the Lynx at email@example.com.
Under 14 Elite Boys Training Kicks Off Sunday
The new Toronto Lynx Juniors elite player training program begins this Sunday, October 14 at St. Joan of Arc School in Maple. The program is open to boys born in 1994 and 1995, and will feature weekly sessions every Sunday held in tandem with the regular Junior Lynx training program. The sessions will be presented by the Toronto Lynx senior coaching staff.
The U14 Boys training program is the first new initiative for the Lynx Academy since the recent announcement of the club’s affiliation with Bolton Wanderers FC of the English Premier League. Identified players from the sessions will have an opportunity to participate in the Junior Lynx trip to Bolton, England at March break 2008.
Further information and registration details are available directly from Academy Director Wilde at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Junior Lady Lynx Prepare For College Showcase Season
The Toronto Lady Lynx Junior Girls program is currently in fall training and continuing their ongoing recruitment efforts in preparation for 2008. "We have recently attracted a number of high-quality prospects into the Lady Lynx Juniors program," commented Wilde, "and we are hard at work preparing for our first college showcase event in Wallkill in November. There are still opportunities for new players to visit our program, join in the training and learn more about the Junior Lady Lynx program."
The Junior Lady Lynx will be fielding teams at the U15, U16 U17 levels in 2008, and interested players and parents are invited to contact Duncan Wilde for further information at email@example.com.
