Sports

Meet friends, learn new skills, improve your fitness and most importantly have fun!

 

The Y offers exciting sports programs. Whether its gaining the confidence that comes with learning a new sport or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork or learning new skills, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole athlete, inside and out.

 

Selecting a sport program to participate in can be as simple as selecting one you or your child have enjoyed as a fan. However, sometimes it makes sense to think through your child’s fitness goals and what you enjoy doing. Sports offer the opportunity to participate individually or as a team and challenges participants in different ways through endurance, speed, mental toughness, teamwork, strength and coordination.

 

Learn a new sport or refine existing skills under the supervision of caring, skilled, and supportive Y coaches and instructors. Choose from team sports or leagues, sports camps and clinics.
