Sports & Recreation

For many youths the Y is a starting point. Where they learn about becoming and staying active. Where they develop healthy habits and skills that they can utilize throughout their lifetime. It is so much more than just the physical activity and health; it’s about gaining confidence, building relationship and becoming a great teammate. Participating in Y sports and programs is about building the child from the inside out.

CREED FOR YMCA YOUTH

 I pledge to play to the best of my abilities; win with dignity and lose without guilt.
 I pledge to respect my coaches and teammates, to be responsible for my actions, and to be caring and honest to all I come in contact with.
 I pledge to build character in myself and keep striving to improve in spirit, mind, and body.
