Chernomorets USA Youth soccer school was
founded in 1996 by coaches Aleksandr Rozenshtraukh and Boris Kraytman
and Merit coach of Ukraine Matvey Cherkassky.
When these three highly experienced,
talented individuals came to the United States and became aware of the
growing interest toward soccer as a sport, they decided to unite and
create a soccer program.
They shared a common philosophy – playing
soccer is beneficial in all aspects. This sport teaches discipline,
promotes health, and intensifies friendships.
Originally, they started with only five
participants, each different age and one Brooklyn school. As time went
on, their hard work and loyal involvement paid off. Their effective
practices attracted many people and each year the number of players has
been growing. The increase allowed for the use of more schools during
cold and rainy weather and outdoor soccer fields under pleasant
conditions. In addition, the training spread to Staten Island.
Their love for soccer, their commitment to
keep the younger population focused on education and sports allowed
Aleksandr Rozenshtraukh, Boris Kraytman, and Matvey Cherkassky bring
success to their school.
Today Chernomorets is a Soccer Club, with
players ranging 3-17 years old, grouped into age-appropriate teams,
participating in various tournaments and having eight professional
coaches supporting them all the way. Not only does Chernomorets provide
training throughout a year, but it also functions as a Sports Program
during school winter, spring, and summer recess.
The main goal of Chernomorets Soccer Club
(CSC) is to instill a healthy life style for our children through the
learning of soccer as a game and as a sport.
At CSC we set high standards. We value and
promote discipline, sportsmanship, and care. We teach our players to be
punctual, fair, and respectful. During our practices, children build a
strong character that lasts and we guide them to maintain the acquired
At CSC we personalize every practice. We
focus and work on areas of improvement with each player during, before,
or after practice. We encourage our children to aim high, reach far, and
go beyond the limits to succeed.
At CSC we emphasize the importance of health. We provide necessary tolls to help our children be or get into good shape.
At CSC we are committed to unity. Our
children form new friendships, fortify the existing relations, and build
stronger bond with their parents.
What Makes Us Unique
Chernomorets Soccer Club (CSC) is NOT just a sports club. We are a
community. We value our children’s parents’ involvement. We welcome
new ideas and appreciate our parents’ initiative, suggestions,
decision-making, and participation on the field. We join families at
holiday gatherings, parent meetings, and soccer games.
At CSC we exercise a reward system on weekly and monthly basis. We
recognize each player’s effort and honor everyone’ commitment.
CSC has created an environment in which you, as a parent, become part
of a team and your child, as a player, becomes part of a family. We are
one team – Chernomorets Soccer Club!
