North Reading Youth Soccer's 22nd Annual Fall Kickoff Classic
North Reading Youth Soccer's 22nd annual Fall Kickoff Classic was a huge success. More than 5,000 players, family members and friends flocked to North Reading during Labor Day weekend to watch hundreds of soccer games played at Ipswich River Park, Maguire Field, and the Arthur Kenney turf field. As with each tournament, coaches, players and fans marveled at the tremendous facilities in North Reading that enable NRYSA to run such a successful tournament. A total of 84 teams participated in the Classic, which once again was directed by Bill Barrows, in his fifth year, and the incredibly dedicated Classic crew.
This year, we had teams from as far away as Kennebunk, Maine and Litchfield, New Hampshire to the North, and Dedham and Hopkinton to the Southwest.
