Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. Individual sports and recreational activities improve the health of the spirit, while exercising the body.

 

YOUTH SPORTS

Sponsored by Parkview Physicians Group

In the YMCA sports, we focus on skill development and strengthening those skills throughout the duration of the sports program. Youth Sports emphasize the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility while focusing on three key elements:

  • Character Building
    By stressing teamwork and the Y’s core values, our sports leagues help teach youth how to be both good sports and good citizens. At the Y, what happens off the field is just as important as what happens on the field.

  • Skill Development
    Our emphasis on teaching and personal improvement fosters an ideal environment for Youth Sports participants to learn and develop their athletic skills.

  • Caring Adults   
  • We recruit parents, community members, and adult athletes who are committed to providing a positive experience for everyone.
