Youth Sports Leagues

The YMCA provides an opportunity for boys and girls to learn sports in a team environment with personal coaching to help with the development of their skills.

Skills! Teamwork! Sportsmanship! And, most importantly… Fun!

The Y nurtures the potential of children through the YMCA’s Youth Sports programming by strengthening character in our youth, engaging families, and building lasting relationships. Participants in these programs build skills, learn about teamwork, and focus on sportsmanship. Families are presented with second-to-none volunteer opportunities as coaches, team parents, and committee members.

The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.  And the benefits are far greater than just physical health.  Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning a new skill or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.

Every week following, each team will play a different team, and will compete to reach our own Basketball Finals!

All parents will receive a schedule before the start of the season to plan for their scheduled times each week.
