At the Y, sports and recreational activities are something special. Friendly competition (even with yourself), lots of variety and a supportive environment means team sports and recreation is fun again, and it makes for a healthier lifestyle and a good story or two.
Whether you miss “suiting up” or are new to team sports, the Y’s sports leagues provide a perfect opportunity to be active, social and reconnect or start fresh with a sport you love. Basketball, soccer, pickleball and volleyball are just some of the options available to get you back on the court or on the field.
When kids play sports, they get more than just exercise. Besides being physically healthier, they have higher self esteem and a healthier body image. The benefits of playing sports go far beyond the physical. Kids who play sports perform better in school, develop better interpersonal skills and work better in groups.
YMCA Youth Sports places a priority on family involvement and healthy competition rather than rivalry. They teach the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others.
