Youth Sports Leagues
YMCA Youth Leagues allow children to be part of a team with a goal of having fun and learning to enjoy the sport without the pressure to win. Scores are not kept and every player gets equal playing time. Call the front desk at the YMCA with any questions. Youth leagues run during the 9-month school calendar and are held on Saturday mornings.
We are looking for volunteer coaches who are interested in changing lives and becoming ‘Professional Role Models’. Our goal is to teach technical skills as well as to help youth gain a sense of achievement, relationships and belonging. Our YMCA curriculum in ‘The Playbook’ is used to teach the core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility. Coaches will be trained how to recognize and prevent child abuse, understand their role as a mandated reporter, and concussion prevention training- along with a national background check.
