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 Baseball Camp

Participants will learn how to catch, throw, and bat in a fun team atmosphere. Each participant will receive a t-shirt. Whether your child is a beginner or has sights set on the major league, we build a strong foundation where players have fun, gain self-confidence and strengthen skills and teamwork. But most importantly, youth baseball at the Y is about more than just a game, it is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
