Seconding the above. Albany Youth Soccer. I played for many years with this organization. Absolutely excellent experience. Good mix of fun and hard work. Very diverse group of kids and coaches. Well organized. Many other kids I knew growing up in Albany played as well. In my opinion this is the integral kids sports experience.
