Our Philosophy

ysrc philosophy v1Our Philosophy

Those who believe that youth sports can have a profound effect upon the youth of our nation must also realize that such influence depends heavily upon the quality of the adult leadership.  Supportive adults need not only the knowledge and skills to conduct safe and enjoyable sports programs, but also the value systems that allow them to realize that healthy child development, not the outcome of the competition, is the most important indicator of success.
