Where do I find out more about the SOC Sports Group?
would like more detailed information about our group please contact
one of our officers.
If I join SOC will I have to participate in many fund raisers?
Fund raising is an important part of our
organizational activities. These activities provide the funds for running the
organization, awards for our players and offset costs involved with
gym rentals. But we recognize that our members have busy lives
and currently participate in a small number of fund raisers.
Where do you hold practices?
We have held basketball practices in various gyms in
and around the Whittier areas. Each year is a challenge to
secure a location for our youth to practice and we are very careful to
stay in good terms with the hosting gym. This year we are
holding practice at La Serna HS in Whittier on Saturdays.
Do you have any other family activities?
We hold joint activities with the Suburban Optimist
Club of Buena Park our parent organization. There is the annual
Christmas party for the Little Stars and Pee Wee teams and in the
summer we have a year
end picnic . This year we are planning more fun family
events outside of organized sports.
