The Webster Youth Sports Council is a youth sports advocacy coalition comprised of community sports groups in Webster. Additional members include the Webster Central School District Athletic Directors, the Webster Community Partnership and the Webster Commissioner of Parks & Recreation. The Council, formed in 1994, represents over 5000 players and 500+ coaches living in the Webster Central School District. Participation is open to all Webster Community youth sports organizations. The Council meets 10 months per year to discuss common issues, opportunities, and participant group status. As an example, WYSC received a $65,000 grant via Sen. Nozzolio, in 2002, to upgrade member storage facilities. No community in the state has an organization like it.
Three meetings a year, January, June and September are focused on coordinating the scheduling of facility space for member organizations for Spring/Summer, Fall and Winter seasons, respectively.
The vision of the Webster Youth Sports Council is to be the recognized leader in advocating for youth sports in the Webster community, focusing on being a model for:
Utilizing Webster School, Town and Community Group resources to enable superior youth sports programming.
Maximizing the utilization of existing community facilities to provide opportunity to all sports.
Community Sports/School District/Town Government cooperation
Promoting coaching excellence, training and quality leadership in all community sports organizations.
The mission of the Webster Youth Sports Council is 3-fold:
Act as the primary advocate for youth sports in Webster in promoting health, wellness and sportsmanship in the Webster Community by supporting and implementing age appropriate instructional, recreational and competitive opportunities for all skill levels.
Coordinate with the Webster Community Partnership, Webster Central School District and the Town of Webster to prioritize and schedule facilities for WYSC member group's use.
Capitalize on the unique spirit of cooperation between Webster Town, School District Athletic Departments, Community Partnership and community sports organizations to collectively focus on identifying and implementing the most efficient and effective means of promoting coaching excellence, coach and player training and quality leadership in all community sports organizations.
