Youth soccer player making a kick

Awesome parents of soccer superstars! If you’re on the lookout for ways to keep your little champs active, healthy, and full of joy, we're here to help kick off your understanding of why signing them up for soccer at the YMCA is a total game-changer. Get ready to help your kiddo as they lace up their cleats and join us on the field! 


Super Soccer Skills 

Soccer isn't just a ball-rolling, goal-scoring extravaganza—it's a fantastic way to keep your kids fit as fiddles! At the YMCA, our caring coaches are here for your budding athletes, helping them build strength, agility, and lightning-fast reflexes. Who knows, they might just become the next Messi or Rapinoe! You could also join them on the field as a volunteer coach and lead them to the winner’s circle.  


Teamwork Makes the Dream Work 

We believe that teamwork makes the dream work, both on and off the field. Your child will be part of a soccer squad that's all about high-fives, encouraging each other, and playing together like a squad of superheroes. We'll teach them how to communicate, cooperate, and score goals as a team.  

Good Sportsmanship Equals Good Times 

No red cards for bad attitudes here! We take sportsmanship seriously, and our soccer programs are all about playing fair, cheering for everyone, and showing up to share good vibes only. Kids in our programs learn the importance of being gracious winners and resilient players, even when the ball doesn't roll their way. 


Score Friends and Smiles 

At the YMCA, we’re all about creating a big, diverse family of awesome humans. By joining our soccer community, your child will meet fellow players from all walks of life. Whether they're defending goals with new buddies or trading high-fives after scoring epic goals, kids form friendships that'll last longer than the season.  


Soccer Fever for Life 

Once your kid gets a taste of soccer life at the YMCA, they'll be hooked for life! We'll help them nurture a lifelong love for the game, whether they continue to play as they grow or simply cheer on their favorite teams. A passion that'll stay with them through thick and thin, rain or shine, and bring a smile to their face for years to come.
