Youth SportsYMCA Youth Sports introduces children the basic skills of a sport, while developing sportsmanship and self-esteem and being part of a team. Coaches are needed to operate the Youth Sports Program. Parents, friends and older siblings are encouraged to volunteer. Experience is not necessary. YMCA staff will train all coaches on coaching strategies and techniques. Programs vary by branch and may include soccer, volleyball, flag football and more. Contact your local YMCA for more information.
