About

"The objective of Homedale Youth Sports, Inc. is to implant firmly in the children of the
community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, respect for authority,
and to encourage each child to maximize their full potential in the skills necessary for each
sporting program, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger, and happier children and will
grow to be good, decent, healthy, and trustworthy citizens." --HYS Mission Statement
 
Homedale Youth Sports, Inc. (HYS) is a
charitable organization founded in Homedale,
Idaho in January of 2008. Due to our
classification as a 501(c)3 charity, contributions
to HYS are tax deductible.
In the fall of 2007, a small group of parents met
to discuss the possibility of creating an
independent organization to improve the
quality of youth athletic programs in
Homedale. Riding the success of a 2007 flag
football league, these parents wanted to
extend that accomplishment into the baseball
and softball programs.
HYS approached the city of Homedale with a
proposal to take over the baseball and softball
programs from the city, and listed the following
objectives for their newly-formed group:
• Develop a non profit organization that can
successfully accomplish the mission statement
in a fiscally responsible manner.
• Development of sustainable leadership,
Board of Directors, coaches, volunteers, and
officials for youth sports.
• To have and stress a universal code of
conduct for players, parents, coaches and
leadership.
• Provide all children the same opportunity to
participate and learn an activity, regardless of
financial situation.
• Continuity between what is taught as part of
Homedale Youth Sports programs and what is
taught in the interscholastic programs they support.
 
 
• Creation of a positive environment that is as
enjoyable as it is instructive.
• Promote good stewardship of the facilities
utilized.
• Serve as a liaison between the community
and the city of Homedale to keep
communication fluid, seeking what is best for
the community and youth sports.
The city of Homedale agreed with the proposal
and has since worked closely with HYS to serve
the Homedale community. Enabled by an
exclusive lease with the city, HYS has served as
a steward of the Sundance Park complex in
Homedale, helping to fund numerous
improvements to that facility including: a new
playground, a renovated storage building,
thousands of dollars of diamond dust for the
five infields, a 1000 square foot tent canopy,
numerous new picnic tables, new dugouts on
all five fields, and new sprinkler systems for all
five infields.
In the year 2009, Homedale Youth Sports
sponsored 29 sports teams and 320 young
athletes. Generous contributions from the
community allowed us to offer full scholarships
to 13 kids and also helped to keep our players
fees down to manageable levels.
 
The strength of HYS comes from the support of
our greater Homedale community, and we hope
to use that support to continue to strengthen
and broaden all of our youth programs.
