Youth Programs

The YMCA aspires to have an outstanding developmental program that will provide a high quality experience to every athlete and volunteer coach in our youth sports programs. Our youth will learn the skills, tactics and strategies of the game while having fun. The young athlete will develop positive characteristics of good sportsmanship and teamwork while strengthening self-confidence and learning life-time fitness in an atmosphere that strengthens family and peer relationships.

Our Goals Are:

  • To build self-esteem
  • To teach social skills - values, communication, human relations
  • To teach physical skills, fitness, and health
  • To develop responsibility and decision-making skills
  • To enhance leadership skills - in youths and adults
  • To build relationships among peers and between parent and child
  • To support and strengthen family life
  • To create a FUN experience for children and their families
