Our Approach to Youth Sports

At the Y, our sports staff, coaches and volunteers all share a singular vision of helping all youth reach their full potential in life. We leverage the excitement and passion around recreational and competitive programming to create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models.

Y Youth Sports Pledge

I pledge to play the game, the best I can, to be a team player, to respect my opponents, the rules and officials, and improve myself, in spirit, mind and body.

Our Y Sports Programs emphasize sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork; emphasize the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility; keep winning in perspective; enable all participates to play in every game; include family involvement; include coaches and officials training; emphasize skill development; emphasize using volunteers as coaches and officials; and are open to all segments of the community.


Have fun and stay active at the same time! Children 3 – 14 years old are welcome to participate in our Winter Youth Co-Ed Basketball Program.

Youth participating in basketball activities can be a great form of exercise that also helps form team-building skills and a sense of community.We offer outstanding opportunities for the entire family to be involved; learning new skills, making new friends and beginning a lifetime of physical activity that promotes health and well-being. Parents are encouraged to volunteer as coaches or in many other roles under the guidance of Y staff.
