The Seven Pillars of YMCA Youth Sports


Everyone Plays

Welcoming and accommodating participants of all backgrounds, abilities, and skill levels, and actively working to remove barriers to participation.


Safety First

Ensuring the safety of all participants through proper equipment, rules enforcement, and trained staff and volunteers.


Fair Play

Encouraging good sportsmanship is essential. Participants should learn the importance of fair play, respect for opponents, and how to handle wins and losses with grace and humility.


Positive Competition

Cultivating an environment where healthy competition values effort and improvement above winning alone. Emphasize the value of competing to the best of one’s abilities, respecting opponents, and learning from victories and defeats.


Family Involvement

Parents are encouraged to support their children positively and respect the decisions of coaches and officials. Involvement provides a sense of belonging for young athletes.


Sports For All

Inclusive sports programs welcome and accommodate participants of all backgrounds, abilities, genders, and skill levels. They actively work to remove barriers that might prevent certain individuals or groups from participating.


Sports For Fun

Above all, youth sports should be fun and enjoyable. When children and adolescents have positive experiences in sports, they are more likely to stay active and engaged throughout their lives.

Volunteer to Coach

Help kids reach their full potential by volunteering to coach youth sports at the Y! Athletic experience isn’t required–just the ability to model the values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility, making sure everyone gets a chance to play and have fun!

Financial Assistance & Special Pricing

The Y is here for ALL. Financial assistance, including insurance-supported programs, is available to help pay for memberships, programs, camps, and sports.

Frequently Asked Questions

Team assignments and coach information will be communicated to registered participants before the start of the season. Please be patient as we rely on volunteer coaches. Keep an eye on your provided contact information and Playerspace.

Each player is required to wear shin guards for practices and games. We recommend soccer cleats for all players in 2nd grade and older but they are not required. We ask that each player brings their own soccer ball to practices and games.

Practice and game schedules and locations will be shared by the coach or through YMCA Playerspace or email. These will be provided no later than the week before the first practice.

Our programs welcome parent volunteers as coaches, team parents, or helpers. For coaching positions, visit our website to begin the background check process. We provide ample support for volunteers.
