Now Enrolling - Spring Sports
Youth basketball at the Y combines team play and individual skills in a fun and supportive environment. Children develop basketball skills including passing, receiving, shooting, footwork and dribbling. Not only will children have an opportunity to improve their technique, but they'll also build social skills, gain confidence and develop leadership skills.
Basketball is offered year-round at select Y locations, and many more Y locations in the Winter season.
Youth Flag Football
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.
Kids can stay active and learn a lifelong sport through instructional play with tennis at the Y. Sessions offer a positive environment where the focus is learning strokes, the rules of the game and court awareness. In addition, Youth Tennis gives young people an opportunity to build confidence, find their strengths and make friends.
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.
