FCYSO is here to introduce the community in our youth to various sports that are played at the high school. FCYSO prioritizes recreational play during the younger years, focusing on fundamentals and getting players excited to come out and play.
Our POV on youth athletics:
1. We should encourage development in players.
2. Players should be having FUN. We need them to want to play the sport through 12th grade. We are mindful of burnout.
3. Recreational play is the priority in grades K - 4. As your players age up (5th grade +), when we have the numbers to do so we will create A/B splits to allow our more gifted athletes the opportunity to be more competitive.
4. We do support tournament play (competitive) if there is interest from parents. This is in addition to regular season play. This doesn't replace standard season team objectives.
The FCYSO board spends time learning and listening to the appropriate direction for your player. As children grow some develop early and others develop later. Our goal is to keep as many kids interested in the various sports as possible so we have enough players at the high school level.
The purpose of the Fort Calhoun Youth Sports Organization is to create a Youth Sports Program based upon the ideals of good sportsmanship, integrity, and teamwork taught through organized athletic activities. The primary goal is to foster these qualities within each individual child in a positive environment
