Did you know that basketball and volleyball were invented by early YMCA leaders?

Our sports programs develop more than skills—they develop character. We offer a variety of programs for youth and adults, including recreation and league sports. Coaches—often volunteers and including many parents—emphasize teamwork, cooperation, and developing the values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Faith.

Baseball, soccer, volleyball, flag football, karate, basketball, gymnastics—check out the sports offerings at your Y and get in the game. Improve your skills, make new friends, be active with other kids and learn to love a sport at the Y. Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. The YMCA has been America's leading swim instructor for more than 100 years. Ys offer swim lessons for all ages but our aquatics programs extend beyond instruction. We also provide recreational, competitive and specialty aquatics programs for all ages and abilities, including parent-child classes, water exercise and therapy, water safety and rescue, and water sports. Teen centers, group exercise, triathlon training, dance clubs, skateboarding, arts—there's a lot more than sports at the Y, giving kids the chance to exert energy, try new things, make new friends … and be kids! "Swim, Sport, and Play" programs vary by branch. For details, contact the YMCA nearest you.
