Somerton Youth Organization is a private PA non-profit that has been encouraging youth development by providing opportunities for personal and athletic growth since 1955. SYO promotes sportsmanship, self-esteem, and the development of life skills by engaging youth in sports while providing a safe, healthy, positive environment where the youth of our community can learn the fundamentals of sports.
SYO is operated entirely by dedicated volunteers looking to serve and better our community.
BASKETBALL UPDATE: as of now, everything is still in a holding pattern. The major issue is available facilities for teams to use. The City and suburban leagues we enter rely heavily on the use of public school facilities. There is some hope that once the schools open back up 100%, and sports are being played safely, the facilities will become available. ￼￼
That being said, SOMERTON BASKETBALL WILL HAPPEN, it just may have a different look. IF there is LEAGUE basketball, the leagues won’t be starting up until mid to late January.
Our plan: 1) we are looking to start tryouts Monday 11/9. 2) we will form teams as if we are preparing for league play. 3) teams will practice once a week. 4) once things become clear, or a little clearer, we will decide what to do. League play, tournaments, multi age Inhouse, skills and drills are all options. 5) the traditional Inhouse program WILL start January 11, 2021
Hope this helps!
