Sports & Rec Committee/ Kick to the balls


Sports & Rec joins Social as one the most active SYCP committees. Monthly events rotate depending on time of year. Hiking and mini golf are popular in the warmer months, while game night and bowling are common fall and winter get togethers. A running club was started in the fall of 2013. We also have several teams registered in a variety of CRPR leagues, including softball, volleyball and bocce. For many of these leagues, registration fees are waived or reduced for due paying members as part of your membership benefits.

Sports & Rec also teams up with other SCYP committees to produce signature annual events. Punting for Pets, a flag football game held every fall, is organized with Outreach to collect donations for local pet charities. We also partner with Social for tailgates at Penn State and State College Spikes games.

Our greatest success may be our participation in the YMCA of Centre County’s Polar Plunge every December. Since 2009, 125+ plungers helped raise over $25,000, winning the awards for Most Raised by an Organization in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015.
