Youth Sports

Everyone plays. Everyone wins. Youth Sports strive to enhance every child’s personal growth and development, sports skills, and fundamentals. Fair play and sportsmanship, values and a sense of teamwork and physical fitness are incorporated into all we do. And, on top of that, kids have fun!

Our programs fill kids’ discretionary hours with positive activities and caring, adult attention. Coaches – often volunteers, including many parents – emphasize teamwork and cooperation over winning at any cost. Developing good values is far more important than developing the next superstar.


Youth Flag Football

Flag Football is one of America’s most exciting sports and this program will introduce your children to the fundamentals of the game. We lead drills and games that teach the skills and positions of football as well as important values that are used on and off the field, all in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment. Kids will get a feel for football as they work on fundamentals of throwing, catching and playing as a team in this no-tackle sport.

Buddy Ball

Buddy Ball is a non-competitive recreational league for boys and girls ages 5 to 20 with special needs. Each player is paired with a buddy to assist the player as needed on the field and in the dugout. Not only do the players experience the thrill of participating in a baseball game, they also experience team play and camaraderie.


 

Youth Basketball

NO ONE TOPS OUR LEGACY.

Did you know that Basketball was invented by the Y in 1891 at the International YMCA Training School?

Dr. James Naismith was given the challenge of creating a game that could be played indoors during the cold winter months. Hanging simple peach baskets and using a soccer ball, Naismith created the game of basketball and wrote the first 13 rules of the game.

From building stronger skills to gaining self-confidence, basketball at the Y is about more than just the game, it is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
