Youth Sports

Fun + Fitness

At the Y, our sports programs keep kids active, teach friendly competition and introduce healthy practices for life. Sports and recreation at the Y create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, learn to work as a team and connect with positive role models — all in an inclusive environment.

The 7-week winter session of Youth Dance + Sports programs runs 1/3 to 2/20. Early registration for Members opens on Monday, December 6, non-member registration opens on Monday, December 13.

Note: Due to the fact that the youth participating in Basketball Fundamentals are largely ineligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, all participants and accompanying adults will be required to wear a mask. This will help protect this unvaccinated population and will mirror the protocol they follow during their school day. We appreciate your cooperation!
