Hello Southport Community,
It’s that time of year again! SYBL will be kicking off year #4 and we are as excited as ever for the upcoming season! The program has high expectations from the High School to the Middle School and on into the youth program. Coaches from the top down are beyond excited to get back to work on continuing to build the program back to elite status. Our mission is to continue to teach the game of basketball at the highest level and to teach what it truly means to be a Southport Cardinal!

This year has brought some ups and downs due to the COVID-19 virus and we continue to work closely with the Marion County Health Department to follow proper health protocols in ensuring the safety of the players, coaches and the community.
