Develop sport-specific skills in an environment that focuses on teamwork and sportsmanship
In the YMCA sports classes, we focus on skill development and strengthening those skills throughout the duration of the sports program.
Youth Sports emphasize the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility while focusing on three key elements:
By stressing teamwork and the Y’s core values, our sports leagues help teach youth how to be both good sports and good citizens. At the Y, what happens off the field is just as important as what happens on the field.
Our emphasis on teaching and personal improvement fosters an ideal environment for Youth Sports participants to learn and develop their athletic skills.
We recruit parents, community members, and adult athletes who are committed to providing a positive experience for everyone. Each of our Youth Sports Coaches goes through a YMCA Coach's Orientation and commits to modeling the Y’s core values.
The Y is for everyone. Financial assistance is available.
Please note that not all youth sports programs are offered at every branch. To see what your local branch is currently offering, please click the View Program Guides button to the right or contact your center's Director of Youth Sports.
