NYS offers amateur sports programs through a volunteer base for all people to have the physical, mental, and moral development of amateur athletics, to promote good sportsmanship and good citizenship, and to serve the youth, the family and the community through participation in youth sports.
The mission of all of our programs is to strengthen the individual, the family, and the community through participation in youth sports. Each program is centered around sportsmanship and emphasizes fun and the importance of fair play.
NYS offers a wide variety of sports for kids ages 3 to 16 years old. In 2004, NYS added 8-Man Tackle Football to its lineup and now operates both 8-Man and 11-Man Tackle Football programs with over 15,000 participants per year. Hundreds of tackle teams look forward to our annual National Tackle Championship tournament, held every summer in San Diego, California.
