ACHIEVING MORE AS A TEAM
When kids play sports, they do more than just exercise. They develop higher self-esteem, perform better in school and work better in groups. YMCA youth sports programs teach kids the fundamentals of the game while emphasizing the importance of teamwork. Above all, kids who participate in YMCA youth sports have a lot of fun.
SPORTS LEAGUES AND CAMPS
At the Y, our sports staff, coaches and volunteers all share a singular vision of helping all youth reach their full potential in life. We leverage the excitement and passion around recreational and competitive programming to create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models.
KEEPING YOU INFORMED
To keep our families and coaches informed during the season, the YMCA utilizes Team Sideline to communicate all league information, including practice and game cancellations and all other scheduling updates. Upon registering your child to participate in a YMCA youth sports league, please be sure to sign-up to receive email and/or text notifications from Team Sideline.
VOLUNTEER AT THE YMCA
We are blessed with a supportive community of volunteers who donate their time and talents to coach in our youth sports leagues. All YMCA volunteers must complete background and reference checks before beginning to volunteer in our programs. Make a difference in a child’s life by signing up to volunteer as a coach in our youth sports leagues today!
