SIA After School Sports

   Spokane International Academy After School Sports Program



SYSA’s partnership with Spokane International Academy will provide recreational youth sports programs at SIA. Students actively attending SIA are eligible to register online for this program. SYSA intends to build upon the strong SIA community spirit and pride with these programs.

SYSA’s philosophy promotes building communities and providing each child with the opportunity to play no matter the ability to pay. Each of the programs offered will give an opportunity for athletes to try a new sport or work on fundamental skills to better themselves at a sport they would like to master.

SYSA will rotate 7 different co-ed sports programs throughout the year, providing training and sports experiences for students ranging from kindergarten through 5th grade.

Indoor Sports: Basketball, Wiffle Ball (baseball skills), Cheer, and Speed & Agility
Outdoor Sports: Flag Football, Volleyball, and Soccer
