Youth Sports

Be goal oriented! At the Lakeland Hills Family YMCA, kids develop all of their skills, from catching and dribbling to teamwork and sportsmanship.

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. Youth Sports are offered year-round and always need great coaches. Use your talents to encourage, guide and train young athletes at the Y!

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.

Youth learn new skills, make new friends, develop essential character traits, and set individual and team goals. This improves self-confidence, promotes diversity, increases self-esteem, and improves physical condition. The positive time with family and friends in this environment strengthens our communities. Youth Sports puts emphasis on healthy relationships between adults and youth as well as family, with a goal to build social skills and sport skills with all participants for the future. Open to non-members.
