At the Y, we know there is much more to a game than the final score. A child’s involvement in youth sports gives them the chance to learn about teamwork, achievement and friendship, all while having a great time. Our sports staff, coaches and volunteers encourage children to reach their full potential in an environment where they'll belong and thrive.
The goal of our Little Champs programs at the YMCA is to help grow and cultivate young children’s minds and bodies. We believe in creating and giving a positive experience of participating in these sports while emphasizing essential and fundamental skill development, self-esteem, fair play, and physical fitness. All while giving the children a positive introduction to the sports with the help of their parents and focusing on letting the kids become more independent to prepare for youth sports.
YOUTH & TEEN SPORTS
The goal of our youth sports programs at the YMCA is to focus on a deeper and more defined level of skill sets within each sport. We strive to coach our youth to focus on improving and building their sportsmanship, teamwork, and skill development. We create a fun and positive environment where youth can build their self-esteem and socialize with peers their age. These programs are great for beginners or those new to sports to work on improving and refining their skills.
Our students not only learn the physical requirements of martial arts but also by instilling core values such as integrity, concentration, self-control, perseverance and leadership.
One of the best ways to engage in your community is through sports! Join fellow members in one of our many sports programs designed to build community, keep you fit, and simply have fun.
The goal of our Adult Leagues at the YMCA is to create a safe and enjoyable experience for adults to come unwind, meet new people and compete in a friendly game. We strive to creat leagues that maintain a fair, competitive and recreational environment that embodies teamwork and sportsmanship. These leagues are great for adults of all skill levels to play in.
