Spartanburg - Always doing.

The City of Spartanburg youth sports programs exist to help children in the development of positive life skills and self-concepts. Our mission is to provide safe, enjoyable recreation opportunities for all participants.

It is our mission to teach the basic skills and fundamentals of the sport, which young people need to be able to play in a safe and nurturing environment, where all children will have the opportunity to play regardless of skill level.

Finally, it is our mission to ensure that each child has a positive, rewarding experience while participating in the programs, and that each child will learn the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork, honor, and integrity while sharing with their coaches and teammates the emotions of success and failure.
