Youth Sports & Fitness

The Y is the starting point for many kids to learn about becoming and staying active. Our youth sports programs promote healthy habits that they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. We place priority on family involvement, the value of participation over winning, and team building as well as developing as an individual, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others.
