About SYA

Smithsburg Youth Athletics:

Smithsburg Youth Athletics was originally called CSL.  It was formed in 1976 to provide sporting opportunities for the youth in the Smithsburg and surrounding area.  We provide year round  athletic leagues for children in preschool thru 12th grade in a wide variety of sports and skill levels.

Mission Statement: 

Our objective is to focus on player development at all levels of play by building their skills, confidence, fitness, and sense of community and teamwork. We are also committed to the development of our coaches through coaching courses, online resources, and learning from more experienced coaches. Finally, we will promote and encourage a high standard of sportsmanship and fair play.
