About Us

History:

NEYSO was established in1978 in San Antonio, TX. NEYSO operates in the heart of the city inside McAllister Park and Specht Rd.  NEYSO offers soccer programs for children ages four through fifteen. NEYSO programs are intended to develop good character, mental and physical fitness, and interpersonal skills through soccer activities.

Special Teams was started in 1987 by Ray Lange.  This program was eastablished to give handicapped athletes the opportunity to play soccer. We are proud to declare our organization the HOME of Special Teams.   

In addition to rec soccer we also offer the opportunity for our players to compete in a more competitive environment. In 2015 we partnered with the city's best competitive soccer program known as Lonestar.  

Finally,  NEYSO created a league for adults that are looking to play in a fun, family environment. NEYSO Nights is a 6v6 league that plays on Friday nights under the lights.  NEYSO Nights 6v6 was created as an outlet for those seeking to play for their first time or just can't hang up the boots.

Benefit to the Community:

NEYSO provides extensive health and wellness benefits to the San Antonio community by offering soccer programs year-round for children ages four through nineteen. There are many benefits to providing athletic programs for youth in the community. NEYSO volunteer coaches teach teamwork and life lessons through soccer. Athletic activity is a great way to fight childhood obesity as well. During registration periods, NEYSO will begin attending numerous community outreach events by visiting local schools to promote soccer for all children, regardless of financial status or skill level.

NEYSO works closely with the San Antonio City Parks and Recreation office, but is not subsidized by the city or funded by taxpayer dollars in any way. It is through donations, grants, community and local support that NEYSO is able to expand and grow to better serve the San Antonio.
