We believe that through sports youth can learn valuable life lessons in teamwork, perseverance, cooperation and sportsmanship. Our participants learn that success comes from practice and hard work and that being part of a team brings unique challenges and rewards. We recognize that children are our future and that our programs help prepare them for their roles as tomorrow’s citizens and leaders. The Page Youth Center was founded and incorporated in 1984 by a group of local individuals with the vision to enhance the lives of Santa Barbara area youth by using sports programs to build character, self-confidence, physical fitness and sportsmanship. In 1991, to meet the increasing needs of the community, PYC completed its 23,000 square foot sports facility which features a 16,000-square-foot gymnasium suitable for a variety of sports.
