Kick it into Action

Soccer is the perfect sport to get your child active as they dribble, pass and shoot their way to fun and excitement.

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.

Soccer is offered at most Y locations in the Spring (March-May) and Fall (August-October) seasons. Bitty Soccer is also available for players ages 3-5.
