YMCA Sports Classes

Age 3 through grade 8

(Please register for the grade your child is currently in or entering)

In YMCA Sports classes, kids will meet weekly to develop their skills through a variety of age appropriate skill drills and team-building exercises for a variety of sports. The session kicks off with a focus on skill development and advances to teamwork concepts which may include light scrimmaging and positive competition. Trained YMCA staff leads each class with help from qualified volunteers.
