About SYA2019-05-07T14:56:30+00:00


Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization giving kids, ages 4 to 19, the opportunity to play and grow. With 13 sports programs running throughout the year, SYA and our 2,500 volunteers have created a healthy, positive environment where kids have learned the values of teamwork and competition for more than 40 years.

Your donations to the SYA Sports Park will help future generations capture that special moment when they hit their first ball, make their first basket or score the winning touchdown.

As the largest multi-sports youth association in Northern Virginia, SYA is proud to provide full and partial scholarships to offset the registration fees of families who need financial assistance.

"Growing up in Clifton VA, my introduction to sports was through SYA, where I played baseball and basketball for 8 years" Matt Welsh Virginia Tech Football 2003 - 2007
