  • Participants are strongly encouraged to come dressed to play upon arrival.
  • Participants are asked to avoid arriving to their sports event no more than 10 minutes before the start time to avoid overcrowding. 
  • Participants are to check in with their sport coach if there are any questions or concerns.

Accommodation Process

The Y considers the individual needs of every person and the ability of the program to meet those needs. Please inform the Y during the enrollment process if you or a family member requires any special accommodation. This information enables the Y to better meet your needs or those of a family member, within available resources and to the extent reasonable. All staff that will be working with you or a family member with special needs will be informed of how to care for or meet those needs.

    Please contact your regional Senior Sports Director for any questions or concerns regarding YMCA of the North Sports Department COVID-19 policies and procedures.
