YMCA Youth Sports help build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities by allowing each child the chance to play without the pressure of competition or tryouts.

Skill development and healthy lifestyles are emphasized along with the YMCA Core Values:

  • caring,
  • honesty,
  • respect, and
  • responsibility.

At the YMCA we stress fun and skills over winning and competition, in a safe, supportive, and healthy environment. The benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out!
