YMCA sports offers children an opportunity to learn how to play most sports in a less-competitive environment. All of the sports programs have implemented special rules dictating guaranteed playing time for all participants that ensures your child a great opportunity to play.
The YMCA views its sports programs as a vehicle to instill its Four Core Values, including honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility into all of the participants. The YMCA puts a large emphasis on teaching the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship, and does so in a less competitive, instructional environment where a child's self-esteem is lifted guaranteeing a higher level of success.
The goal of the YMCA is for every child is to have a fun, safe, and productive experience in any sport offered, as the YMCA believes that the overall well-being and success of the athletes is more important than winning.
