Victory Isn't Just A Score

The youth sports program at the Y has four goals regardless of the skill level of each child:  skill improvement, knowledge growth, character development, and most importantly fun. Each instructional program is focused on giving children an equal opportunity to improve in game fundamentals, game knowledge, sportsmanship and teamwork, appropriate competition, while having fun.  Children are divided by combined age groups in each instructional program based on enrollment. We believe an important component of YMCA Youth Sports is the concept of fair play and respect for oneself, one's opponent and others involved in competition. Players, volunteer coaches, officials, and spectators share a responsibility for fair play and good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship for the YMCA is encompassed by the concept of positive character development.
