In addition to our SYC Recreational (Rec) Basketball Program, SYC offers a County Basketball program. SYC County Basketball participates in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (“FCYBL”) with other select teams from participating youth clubs throughout Northern Virginia. The program is for 5th-8th grade players ready to participate in a higher level of competition. Unlike our Rec program where all registered players are placed on teams, our County program has tryouts where coaches evaluate and select players for their teams.
NOTE: SYC County teams are restricted by FCYBL rules to players residing in zip codes assigned by FCYBL. SYC’s zip codes: 22150, 22152, 22153, 22039, 22079, 22310 & 22315. Two zip code exceptions are allowed per team. No player living outside Fairfax County can play via a zip code exception.
Tryouts are FREE.
Start Date: Immediately following tryouts and player selections.
End Date: early March 2023
