Youth

The YMCA’s philosophy on Youth Sports is for kids to have fun and learn new skills. The purpose of the program is to offer youth the opportunity to enjoy playing under conditions that will foster skillful play, fellowship, team loyalty, and a finer appreciation of the sport. We focus on cooperation and not competition. There are no tryouts for a team and everyone is guaranteed playing time. We teach your child the fundamentals of each sport, and just as important, we focus on the YMCA’s character development traits of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.
