Capture the Moment!

Every year thousands of kids particpate in SYA sports.  With 13 sports, there’s something for everyone. While the sports may be different, the kids share one thing…the moment. The moment when a child does the extraordinary. It can happen on a field or in a gym. It’s the moment that is captured in their eyes, their smile, their voice. It is the moment when the joy of sports is realized. 

Join SYA and capture the moment.
