VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!! ALL GRADE LEVELS.

 

SYSO is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, organizing and administering youth sports programs for the children of Somers. SYSO is not a town run (Parks & Recreation) program. The Philosophy of SYSO is to encourage a healthy level of competition while stressing safety and participation for all, regardless of skill or ability. If you are interested in learning more about ways you can help, please contact the Commissioner.

 

Dear Parents, Coaches and SYSO Basketball Players, we hope you all had an enjoyable summer. Welcome to SYSO Boys Basketball for the 2013-2014 season. We are extremely excited about the upcoming year. Our program continues to grow and develop year over year, last year we had a tremendous turnout, and we are expecting an even larger number of registrations this season.

 

The SYSO Boys Basketball Program’s philosophy for the upcoming season continues to be to provide a fun, worthwhile basketball experience for our children. Specifically, we encourage our young players to develop an appreciation and understanding for the game of basketball in a fun and competitive learning environment.

 

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. SYSO Boys Basketball places an emphasis on teaching our young players to gain a healthy respect for opponents, coaches and officials. Behavior outside the beliefs of SYSO Boys Basketball will not be tolerated. Simply stated, we as parents must set a good example for our children.

 

Please understand that especially in Grades 4 and above requests for specific team placement cannot be honored.

  

Lastly, 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 our young people in our community is enormous and must be shared by all. SYSO policy states that if there is an insufficient number of volunteer coaches and administrators for a particular league, that league will not play for the current season.   Please don’t sit back.  Volunteer your time and energy and become a part of your child's basketball experience.

 

Thanks for your commitment to our young people. We are looking forward to another great season.
