Did you know that basketball and volleyball were invented by early YMCA leaders?
Our sports programs develop more than skills—they develop character. We offer a variety of programs for youth and adults, including recreation, league sports and clinics, as well as girls-only teams. Coaches—often volunteers, including many parents—emphasize teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values. Youth, from preschoolers to teens, and adults get to learn the fundamentals of a new sport or practice their favorite one, cultivate a love for the game and socialize with their teammates.
Youth sports at the Y span across indoor and outdoor courts, soccer fields, Y gyms, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
Learn more about youth sports at your Y this season and year-round. Offerings at our branches throughout Silicon Valley include youth basketball league and clinics, soccer, martial arts, baseball, football, youth strength training and fitness, rock climbing, ballet, and even Gym Ventures for toddlers. We have options for everyone to play, work on their athletic skills, and stay fit and healthy, all while forging lifelong bonds with others in the community.
Youth Sports programs vary by branch. For details, contact the YMCA nearest you.
