YMCA Youth Sports & Fitness

The Lancaster Family YMCA is the starting point for many kids to learn about becoming and staying active. YMCA 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.

The Lancaster Family YMCA, Lancaster Rec, and the School District of Lancaster have joined together to offer an initiative called “Every Girl Invite a Girl” #everygirlinviteagirl. Our goal is to reach more girls in our community and engage them in youth sports so they can make lifelong friendships, encourage each other as teammates, and learn new skills to succeed.Shirts are given for free to girls who come in as a pair to register for our youth sports programs. You can also help support this program and spread the word about this initiative by purchasing a shirt for $12.
