We're proud to offer a variety of sport options for kids of all ages. Whether it's sports clinics, workshops or training programs, there's something for every kid who wants to try a new sport or improve skills all while having fun. No matter the sport, we emphasize teamwork, fair play and building better people, not just better athletes.

T-Ball & Coach Pitch

The Y's tee-ball and coach pitch programs are a great way for your child to explore a new sport, increase self-confidence and work within a team atmosphere. Kids aged 3-7 years old are welcome to play. Beginner and Intermediate tee-ball will teach the fundamentals of baseball, while coach pitch is for those ready for the next level of play! The first two weeks will be practice with games the final three weeks.

Summer Sports Clinics

Half-day sports clinics are designed to give your kids a full immersion into unique program opportunities. Participants will develop new skills while learning about each sport and will also focus on the four core values of the YMCA of caring, honest, respect and responsibility. For Summer 2021, we're offering the following:  

  • All Sports
  • Dodgeball
  • Soccer
  • First Tee Golf
