Sports & Play

Sports CourtTeam 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, 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.
