2015-16 Boys Basketball Season 

Welcome to the SYSO Boys Basketball 2015-16 season.  We are extremely excited about the upcoming season and as our program continues to grow and develop.   Below are some key items for the upcoming season and the overall program.

Boys Basketball Leadership Team

As aligned with the Somers Youth Sports Organization (SYSO) guidelines & bylaws, we have created a Boys Basketball Leadership team designed to lead & develop all aspects of the program in a proactive and transparent manner that focuses on the overall development of our children as basketball players, as individuals, and as members of a team.

 The Boys Basketball Leadership Team consists of the following people:

  • Commissioner – Mike Miskiewicz
  • Assistant Commissioner – Court Ingraham
  • Treasurer – Jonathan Kass
  • Coach/Player Development Director – Chris Violante
  • Player/Parent Representative (Health & Safety Director) – Joe Healy

Each role will be instrumental in the overall success of the Boys Basketball Program and has been approved by the SYSO Executive Board.

Objective of the Boys Basketball Program

The SYSO Boys Basketball Program’s philosophy is to create a recreational and competitively friendly environment in which children of varying skill levels have fun playing basketball thru teaching fundamental skills, rules and strategy of the game. Our goal is to model and teach competitiveness with an emphasis on good sportsmanship while providing a safe environment for all participating players. Our core belief is to stress the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork. We expect all of our players, coaches, parents and officials to conduct themselves properly at all times in a respectful manner.

Upcoming Season Information

In Town Recreational Program:

  • Registration is now open for In Town Recreation Basketball. As in the past we will have “Grade Specific” Divisions starting with our 2nd Grade Clinic and continuing through to the 9-12th Grade League. We intend to have combined Divisions for the 3/4th Grade, 5/6th Grade, and 7/8th Grade, although this is subject to change based on the total # of registrants per each Division
  • In addition we have created a Playing Guidelines & Rules document for the In Town Recreational Program. I encourage you to review the document which should provide an understanding of our objectives as well as some key informational items for the In Town Recreational Program.

  • Try outs will be during the following weeks: Week of 9/21, 9/28, and 10/5 (Monday & Tuesday nights) – a player must attend 2 out of the 3 tryout sessions to be considered for a team.

  • Travel Coaching – if you (or anyone who you know) are interested in coaching one of our Travel Teams the following is now mandated criteria:
    1. You are an SYSO registered member and meet all the requirements of the Somers Youth Sports Organization to coach
    2. Prior to September 25th the individual must submit the following information as to why they would like to (and feel qualified to) coach.
      • Coaching Philosophy / Background Information / why they would like to coach (should be brief – no more than 2-3 sentences on each). Applicants information should be sent to the following email address: m.g.miskiewicz@gmail.com
      • Based on the applicants and the information provided, coaches will be selected.
      • Coaches are not determined until after all tryouts are completed

Volunteers

Our program will only be as good as the parent volunteers that make up our coaching and administrative staffs. We are all parents in the community and lead hectic lives. The amount of time and energy needed to provide a positive basketball experience for the young people in our community is enormous and must be shared by all.  Please consider volunteering your time and energy and become a part of your child's basketball experience.

Thank you for your commitment to our young players and the Somers Basketball Program. We are looking forward to another great season.

Best Regards

The Boys Basketball Leadership Team

Mike Miskiewicz, Court Ingraham, Jonathan Kass, Chris Violante, and Joe Healy.
