Sports, Wellness & Recreation


Through a variety of sports, recreation, and wellness programming, kids of all ages, abilities, and interests come to the Y to have fun!   While having fun, each of our youth programs is designed for kids to build self confidence, make friends, and develop physical, emotional, and social skills.

Youth Sports

Our sports department strives to provide kids with the opportunity to fall in love with new sports in a fun, instructional, and low-pressure environment.  Participants develop skills in the sport, along with discipline, teamwork, conditioning, and sportsmanship.

Youth Wellness

We strive to provide wellness programs that help kids and teens develop and maintain healthy lifestyles at the Y and beyond.

Youth Recreation

Kids just want to have fun! We love providing a place and programs here at our Y where kids are able to be kids in a safe and fun environment

Youth Basketball League

The goal of the Y-Ball program is to develop the whole basketball player; providing each participant with an opportunity to improve basketball skills, develop gameplay, and build friendships, all while having fun and fostering a love for the game.
