CREATING FUN THAT LASTS A LIFETIME
YMCA Youth Sports provides kids a fun outlet for their energy and builds a foundation for a lifetime of success, fitness, and wellness. Our programs foster dedication, confidence, friendly competition, and teaches children how to collaborate and play well with others.
We define success as:
Kids learning age appropriate sports skills
Learning fun ways to stay active
Learning good sportsmanship
Teaching children the YMCA's core values: respect, responsibility, care, and honesty, and how to demonstrate these values when interacting with coaches, officials, parents, spectators, and their teammates
How we achieve success:
Parents and volunteer coaches who demonstrate the YMCA's core values listed above
Parents who are attentive to their children, involved in their games, and helpful to the coaches when asked
Volunteer coaches who understand and care about the development and achievement of each child
Volunteer coaches who have the time* to manage a team and possess the skills to communicate effectively with children and parents
*Most sports run about 7 weeks and require 1-3 hours per week per team.
Programs are for all children ages 3 through 12. Sports programs run throughout the year, with registrations held in advance and end one month prior to the beginning of each sport. After registration has closed, there is a $15 late fee and children are placed as space becomes available.
YMCA youth sports places a priority on:
healthy competition instead of rivalry
the value of participation over winning
individual development combined with team-building
sense of fair play
mutual respect for others
Parents and guardians are always encouraged to be more than mere spectators by contributing their time as volunteer coaches – as well as being their child’s greatest fan.
