"Supporting our local youth and communty"
The Southern Indiana Sports Recreation and Youth Center (SISRYC) was created out of a Community Town Hall on August 1st 2013 which was sponsored by a small group of citizen's who were seeking interested in creating a youth center. Just a few weeks later, our Board of Directors was formed and we started our journey.
After much discussion, it was determined that we could have a much broader reach to go beyond our youth to reach our senior citizen's and all those in between as well! The idea would also go beyond the limits of the city of Mitchell to include our surrounding communities and friends for our vision would benefit everyone in the local area. Aside from aiding to the needs of our youth, SISRYC would host a variety of sports leagues and tournaments bring thousands of people to the area throughout the year thus providing an economic boost to the local economy. Businesses, Schools, Cities and Towns would all benefit from SISRYC.
SISRYC became a 501(3)c non-profit organization in July of 2014. Plans are to renovated the old Pamida Building on Teke Burton Drive next to the Mitchell City Park into an indoor Sports Recreation and Youth Center! Estimates have been gathered to determined the cost and time needed to transition the building into SISRYC and we are looking for businesses, corporations and/or private donors to help make it a reality! Fundraising has begun with a full slate of events coming in the spring of 2015. You can click on the building layout tab to view and see the variety of things SISRYC will provide as well as youth programs and senior citizen's programs too! If there is a need, SISRYC will be able to provide that need.
The local VFW POST 9107 continues to support the local youth and community with another donation of $7,500 to the
Southern Indiana Sports Recreation and Youth Center!
