SYA participates with more than 20 other youth organizations in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (FCYBL) www.fcybl.org, a county-wide league that promotes competition, athletics, and good sportsmanship. FCYBL runs Division I and Division II leagues for boys and girls, ages 10 to 18 years.
SYA typically fields teams for Boys and Girls 5th grade to 8th grade. One of the many positive side effects of the SYA Travel program is its proven ability to prepare players to participate in high school level basketball.
The SYA Travel Program is intended for the advanced player — it is a competitive program. A series of tryouts are held where coaches select a limited number of players. Not all players are selected. Players must attend two tryouts to be eligible for selection. Players are encouraged to attend all tryouts so the coaches can make the best assessment of their abilities.
SYA Travel Basketball plays in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (www.fcybl.org). SYA fields teams for Boys and Girls 5th through 8th grade. Tryouts begin early October. Games begin in late November (late June for Summer Travel).
