Adult Sports

Sports, fun and exploring new interests aren't just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there's the added benefit of being connected to others. That's why you'll find a range of recreational activities at the Y. With something to offer everyone, there's no such thing as being too old to get in the game.

When kids play Y-Sports, they develop more than skills—they develop character. Instructors and coaches—often volunteers, including many parents—model fairness and hard work while emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values in our non-competitive programs. Our volunteer coaches recognize achievements large and small and understand that winning is not just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team. Everyone plays, everyone wins.

Summer Sports Camps (June 5-August 4, 2017)

YMCA Sports Camp focuses on improving sport skills through teamwork and friendly competition for preschool and youth age groups. There will be a variety of sports to choose from with each session lasting one week. Sports campers will be given the opportunity to learn and develop new skills, and play games. Read more on our camp page!
