Backyard Sports Cares (BYSC) is the non profit 501(c)(3) division of Backyard Sports, the leading provider of community team sports programs for kids of all ages in Westchester County. Established in 2005, Backyard Sports is committed to replacing today’s “win at all costs” mentality of youth sports with an approach that promotes increased self confidence and a lifetime love of sports while maximizing the athletic potential of each participant. Backyard Sports Cares was created to bring these ideals to children who have limited access to traditional youth sports programs, including children with special needs.
Our programs serve as a bridge to neighborhoods and participants from various demographics and cultures. Through collaborative partnerships, BYSC offers quality sports programming that builds skill development but more importantly builds long lasting relationships and teaches life lessons that will help underserved and special needs children build a better future for themselves and, as a result, for our community.
Collaboration with other youth development organizations has been a key ingredient in the success of our community outreach programming. School districts, after school programs, local youth bureaus have joined with BYSC to create programs that serve the unique needs of their community. We welcome the opportunity to meet with organizations or individuals who are interested in bringing BYSC programs to their community.
