Our Teams are set for 2017 Lehigh Acres Basketball, but we could still use some coaches to volunteer and other to help with score keeping, etc.!
SYAL sponsors a 10-week spring basketball league which culminates with a tournament. Practices have started on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the season begins the first week in March. The 2015 program saw 167 students and the 2016 program saw 144 students both were divided into three age groups with four teams for each age group. The play was competitive and the family support at tournament time was outstanding. The age range is 8 to 15 and the teams of made up of both boys and girls. Thank you to all the volunteer coaches, the dedicated referees and other program volunteers.
This past season of 2016 basketball was a huge success! The SYAL would like to thank the coaches for all the help and motivation they gave the team. Another huge thank you goes out to the parents for all their support and to the children who participated. The people were what made it another great year of basketball!
We expect 2017 to be another successful year at Veteran’s Park in Lehigh Acres and we’re excited to announce we’re in the planning stages of adding another program at the North Fort Myers Community Park and Recreation Center in 2018! For both leagues we’ll need support from volunteers, so please consider being a part of one these valuable programs which make a difference in the lives of Lee County youth.
