What It's All About...
For more than 45 years Newcastle Youth Sports is a community organization that promotes the character and physical development of our youth. Our mission is to provide a quality experience for our players and their families. Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership Newcastle Youth Sports Baseball, Football and Basketball programs assists youth in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By giving the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Newcastle Youth Sports Little League program is designed to develop superior citizens as well as superior athletes. Our goals are to promote the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play. And , of course, to teach our youth the great games of Baseball, Football and Basketball.
In an effort to promote these goals, we seek out parents , guardians, coaches, and donors to get involved in any way they can and serve as role models for the great youth of the Tri City area. The objective of the youth Athletic programs offered by N. A. S. A. is to offer a rich year-round schedule of participatory athletic activities that teach our players the proper skills for Football, Baseball, Basketball and more importantly, for life. N. A. S. A. will provide a solid foundation so that area youth can be challenged to succeed to their highest potential in the sports programs they choose, led by an exceptional, caring staff, in a safe and positive environment enhanced by our community support.
The Park Brings History To Our Generations
One of the great things about having a community park and organization for our youth is when you have the history behind it. Our history brings families like the Corbin’s that have years of hard work and many hours spent out at this park. For instance, Randy Corbin and his dad, Bob, dedicated their time and efforts to build the park where it stands today. Randy signed up his son Cameron to play in the Little League program and spent many hours watching him grow, develop character, courage and loyalty. Now a new generation has began. Cameron Corbin has been out at the park working on improvements. And now his son, Bridger, is signed up for his first year of T-Ball. Those same character building skills, courage and loyalty have began again. And that’s only one of the many families that this park brings History to our Generations.
Where We Are Headed
We are very excited to be expanding the opportunities for our youth. We want to reach additional members of our community with additional sports that can be added to the organization. As many of you may already know, we have also been very active with Park improvements this year. We have had a great response from our community with donations and materials for some of the improvements. This, however, takes a lot of time and commitment and we look forward to seeing our community step up and take care of the Park that our youth will continue to grow and develop into those superior citizens and athletes. If you would like more information on how you can positively impact our youth, please contact NASA.
