THE SYLVANS WAY
Our aim at Sylvans Sports Club is to create a happy and safe environment where football and other community activities can be enjoyed by all, regardless of age, gender or ability.
We are a family united by sport, embedded in our local community. We aspire to become the leading community sports club in the island. We want to provide facilities and coaching to the highest possible standard and to ensure that those playing and watching at every level feel proud to be part of our club.
Sylvans SC is built on integrity, respect and the pursuit of excellence. On the field, we will never take a backward step. We strive not only to win, but to win in the proper way. We play hard, but we always play fair and give the ultimate respect to our opponents and the rules of sportsmanship. We never compromise on these principles. Never.
We are proud to be part of our community. We aim to be socially responsible, to be good neighbours and to help save the planet as much as we can. But ultimately, any club is only ever as good as its people and in this we are truly blessed, be it the players, coaches, supporters, and all those behind the scenes who make things happen.
“Sylvans in the heart of the community, for the community.”
