THE ORGANIZATION South Central Outdoors for Youth (SOY) is a non profit organization started in 1991 for the express purpose of encouraging youth’s interest in the outdoors in a safe and controlled environment, with knowledgeable volunteers on hand to instruct and promote that interest. Its founders and volunteers believe that by giving youth and their parents/guardians a free day of various outdoor activities, children have the opportunity to experience various sports without cost to the family. If the child decides to continue with the sport, there are many knowledgeable volunteers available to give information and instructions. In addition to teaching various activities and encouraging interest in the outdoors, the South Central Outdoors for Youth (SOY) is achieving other purposes; to conserve and maintain our natural resources, introduce youth to safe, wholesome, legitimate and lifelong recreational activities; instill in the youth a relationship to the land and great outdoor interest; introduce youth to our natural resources in hopes that they become the responsible stewards of our natural resources; and to impart adequate knowledge to our youth concerning the necessity of conservation. And we also have a lot of fun!
We hope to see you there!
