Sports & Play
Team sports at the Y build character and self-esteem. Participants cultivate values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Kids will not only learn the fundamentals and how to work together on a team, but also who they are and what they can achieve.
Our programs include parent child, pre-school, youth, special needs and teen enrichment programs. We offer dance, music, a sports sampler, tennis, basketball, softball, soccer, theatre, crafting, and more. We also offer more advanced classes for children who have taken our sports classes before.
Take a look at our current program guide located on our home page for a full list of programs.
