Founded in 1981, Suffolk Youth Athletic Association is a non-profit, charitable, tax exempt whose sole purpose was to operate, conduct and maintain athletic programs for the Youth of Suffolk and the surrounding areas.
Today we service over 1,800 registered players, boys and girls playing sports year round. It takes over 25,000 volunteer hours to run and manage our programs on a yearly basis. We are privately owned and ran by volunteers. This includes Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Officials, Ground Keepers, and Concession Management, and a Board of Directors.
The past 30 years have been a period of tremendous growth for SYAA. From a small beginning, SYAA has grown to one of the largest privately operated youth sports organization in Virginia. We continue to operate as a volunteer program, stressing the need for parents to be active participants in their children’s endeavors.
SYAA is indebted to many local businesses, organizations, and individuals who have sponsored teams over the years.
Thank you for continued support of our organization because without the parents, organizations, and businesses, we would not be the organization that we have become.
SYAA operates over 25 fields for Baseball, softball, soccer, and Field Hockey. All are Privately owned by the Association, a rarity for youth sports organizations in the Tidewater Virginia area. We have teams playing throughout the Tidewater area and are “in season” year round.
Come out one Saturday and see the joy of the children and the pride of the parents.
We would like to give thanks to the following businesses or persons for their Sponsorships of teams and/or through the Capital Campaign:
