• Backyard Sports Cares is dedicated to providing high quality sports programming to young athletes with limited access to community programs in order to:

    • Build a lifetime devotion to sports and the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.
    • Enhance social and leadership skills.
    • Provide community building experiences that can have an enduring impact on participants’ lives off of the playing field
    Who We Are

    Backyard Sports Cares (BYSC) is the nonprofit 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.

    How We Do It

    Backyard Sports Cares employs a dedicated group of skilled Teacher/Coaches who serve as instructors and role models.  These professionals are assisted by young athletes and student leaders who volunteer as peer mentors. The program consists of weekly skill sessions and competitive game play for boys and girls in Pre K through high school.  Current sports offerings include soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, fitness and martial arts.  In addition to providing programs at our own facility, Backyard Sports Cares has partnered with schools and community agencies to offer on site early morning, recess, afterschool and summer sports activities.
