The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they'll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it's gaining the confidence that comes from learning to play a sport or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
When kids play sports, they develop skills beyond the field. Through healthy competition, kids can discover their personal best, have fun and be a part of a team. Modeling fairness, cooperation and hard work, our volunteer coaches recognize achievements, large and small, and understand that winning isn't just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team.
Like many youth sports programs, volunteer coaches lead players through drills and games that build skills, develop coordination and enhance a love of the game. But what makes us special is our philosophy. We make sure everyone participates. The YMCA Youth Sports philosophy is based on equal participation, fun, skill development, physical fitness, teamwork, sportsmanship, family involvement and volunteer leadership
