Our sports programs for children focus on the development of healthy lifestyles, the valuse of cooperation and fair play, the involvement of parents in a positive support roles, and individual children rather than the sport. Our coaches and leaders assure that the programs are developmentally appropriate, contribute to the YMCA goals for children and families, and reflect the organization's mission that everyone, regardless of sex, race, national origin, religion, or physical ability, is welcome to participate.
