President's Message

October 2017

Greetings, 

As SEYO President, I want to welcome you to another exciting year of youth sports. Founded in 1964, SEYO currently has eight affiliated organizations, AFMC, JETS/JETTS, NYS, OCBC, OCO, SOC, VFW and WPC.  Last year’s winter basketball season had 166 teams competing at various gyms throughout Orange County. 

The key element in our success over the years has been the hard work and planning by our Board of Directors and other volunteers. They are dedicated to ensuring that our basketball and baseball programs grow and thrive in our communities. Youth sports has and will always continue to evolve, what remains unchanged are these individuals’ passion and dedication to our league and the kids. They continue to work diligently to contribute toward the continuous improvement of SEYO.

The South East Youth Organization is an instructional league for boys and girls in Second Grade through high school. SEYO organizes games, officials and facilities for youth to participate in sports at all skill levels. SEYO emphasizes sportsmanship, fair play and balanced competition across member organizations, teams, coaches and players. SEYO strives to have the best experience possible for our families One of the primary aims of SEYO is to make our league the best possible experience for everyone. We set the expectation that all SEYO players, coaches, parents and spectators always exhibit the highest level of sportsmanship and conduct throughout the season.  This league mandate is one of the reasons SEYO is one of the premier youth leagues in Southern California. 

We want every SEYO athlete to develop the ability to compete and grow.  We focus on all players’ participation, enjoyment and skill development, while maintaining the sportsmanship and friendship that has brought them together playing the game they love. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your invaluable support to our league. Together, we can strive to achieve new heights for youth sports.  I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as we cheer together for our kids, our community, and our future.

Sincerely yours, 


Jennifer Villanueva
SEYO President 2017-2019
