Youth Flag Football
TIME: Practices begin week of August 19. Games played on Saturdays, September 7-October 19
In Youth Flag Football, the focus is on teamwork in a positive and structured environment. Children will learn how to throw, catch, run routes and other aspects of the game that will keep them active and help them develop skills such as hand-eye coordination. In addition, children will have an opportunity to develop leadership skills and build self-esteem as they improve their technique.
FEES: Vary by Center
With an emphasis on fair play and fun, soccer at the Y is progressive with age-appropriate rules to help teach the game and keep it fun at every level. Our soccer program focuses on sportsmanship and teaching the basic skills including kicking, passing, dribbling, shooting, defense and working as a team.
Our volleyball leagues are designed to develop fundamental volleyball skills while learning teamwork, strategy, and sportsmanship. Skills taught include serving, passing, setting, hitting, and the rules of the game.
Players ages 3-5 are introduced to fundamentals of the sport through instructional practices and scrimmage games. Programs are offered year-round and vary by center but may include cheer, baseball, basketball, flag football and soccer.
Adaptive / Challenger Sports
Athletes are assigned to teams by age and ability, and are coached by volunteers. A volunteer buddy is partnered with each athlete to offer assistance as needed throughout the game, allowing parents to relax and cheer from the sidelines. Sports fundamentals are taught through drills at practices and during games. Fitness classes incorporate physical activity with lessons on nutrition and healthy living.
