PLEASE NOTE: To the extent possible, teams are formed from players living in the same general neighborhood. Because of the large number of children in the REC program, SYC can not guarantee consideration of special requests for placement, coaches or teams. Issues such as carpools, day care, work schedules, etc., should be worked out by the individual parents.
