OSSINING, N.Y. -- Siobhan Kennedy and Rishy Vasishta traveled from their homes in Ireland and England to spend the summer coaching young soccer players in communities across the U.S., and the week they spent in Ossining has proved to be one of their favorites.
They told Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity, "The people in the community are so nice ... the sunsets are beautiful. ... I'm definitely coming back."
Councilwoman Kim Jeffrey and her family hosted the coaches, providing them with a welcoming home and an insider's view into Ossining.
Participants in the Ossining AYSO program report they have become better players as a result of the weeklong soccer intensive. The final week offered through this Ossining AYSO partnership with UK International Soccer continues until Friday.
