Youth Sports has adopted the philosophy of the National Alliance For Youth Sports (NAYS) by striving to place the athlete first and winning second in our athletic program. Parents should support their young athletes sports experience and de-emphasize "winning at all cost". Your participation is encouraged. Having fun, improving skills, staying in shape, and experiencing friendly competition are the benefits we hope your child will receive from this program.
