Keeping Fun in the Game
Our youth sports programs develop lifelong skills and confidence, encourage kids to be active for life and most importantly, are fun.
Approximately 70% of kids stop playing organized sports by the age of 13 because they say it’s not fun anymore.

Parents play an important role in their child's decision to keep playing sports, as illustrated in the videos below. At the YMCA, we keep fun in the game. Our coaches focus on building strong skills so kids can play at any level, but more importantly, they help kids learn teamwork, leadership and sportsmanship—skills that will help them excel throughout their lives while staying active and healthy.
