CHARACTER FIRST, COMPETITION SECOND

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. The youth sports programs are structured to provide each child an equal opportunity to improve.

Instructional Programs

  • Skill Progression
  • Game Knowledge
  • Character Development
  • Fun
  • Simulated Games

Each eight week instructional program is focused on giving each child an equal opportunity to improve in game fundamentals, game knowledge, sportsmanship and teamwork, appropriate competition, and most importantly fun.  As the program progresses from week to week, the instructors will be spending less time on instructional drills and more time on game strategy through simulated games.  Children are divided by grade level in each instructional program.
