CYSO: 27 Years & Counting
Lou Toste and other Ceres Youth Soccer Organization leaders passed out trophies during the last day of the 2010 recreational season on Nov. 13 at Ceres River Bluff Regional Park.

Toste, outgoing president, thanked every player and parent.

"This is our 27th season," he said. "We've been very successful. We work very hard for this community. We do everything for the kids."

Over 1,200 boys and girls, aged 4-14, signed up for CYSO's 10-week recreational season.

The league featured 75 teams.

CYSO fielded under-6 boys and girls teams for the first time this year. More than 250 youngsters participated.

"We had too many kids, we could separate them," Toste said.

The 2010 season got underway on Sept. 11.

CYSO had to limit its enrollment because of a lack of space at Ceres River Bluff Regional Park.

Earlier this year, Toste and other organization representatives asked the Ceres City Council to consider adding a sixth field.

"It's very important the city supports us so we can have more kids out there," Toste said. "We need more fields."
