The Y is a starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active and developing healthy habits for a lifetime. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Through YMCA youth sports programs, kids gain self-confidence and build positive relationships that lead to teamwork and good sportsmanship. In every sports league, Y staff and volunteers use fun practice activities and games as teaching tools to help all children improve their skills and develop a lifelong passion for physical activity.
YMCA YOUTH SPORTS PHILOSOPHY
We are focused on nurturing the potential of every child and teen. Through the Y's youth sports programs, we want to help children improve their skills, make new friends, and learn to love a sport at the Y.
Our sports programs provide children with opportunities to learn specific sports skills in a supportive atmosphere. Our sports programs are conducted with emphasis on the positive personal growth of the child. We balance the development of physical skills with other important aspects of sports, such as leadership, teamwork and cooperation. Above all, kids who participate in Y Youth Sports have a lot of fun.
The Y strives to provide your child with the best Youth Sports experience possible. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
