What Makes Youth Sports at the Y Special?
Y sports encourage children to develop themselves as athletes through healthy competition while discovering new friendships and cultivating core values they can use both on and off the field: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
Sign Up For Winter Youth Basketball League
Our Youth Basketball League teaches children to develop their skills through healthy competition while building new friendships. Players learn fundamental basketball skills and participate in competitive games.
Fun, Safety, and Confidence in the Water
Swim lessons at the Y help members who want to learn a life skill by increasing their knowledge, ability, and stamina to build smart, strong swimmers, and confidence. Y swim lessons skill-based instruction that maximizes physical activity, emphasizes safety, and elevates character development. We stress positive values and give members the opportunity to practice them, growing their self-esteem and self-worth, while they have a great time.
View our swim lesson level guide to find the right class for you.
Parent and Child lessons feature family-style swim lessons where a parent is in the water and attending with their child. Lesson plans and activities designed to help parents teach Y swim skills with swim instructor support. One child per parent in the water.
Levels 1-3 help preschoolers learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills — swim, float, swim and jump, push, turn, grab.
Levels 1-4 feature socially distanced in-water activities where kids learn from a swim instructor in the pool with them.
Levels 5-6 feature socially distanced in swim lane activities where kids learn from a swim instructor on the deck.
Levels 4-5 introduce basic stroke techniques of front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, and butterfly while teaching continued water safety. For swimmer's safety, they should be able to swim 15 yards independently on their front and back.
Level 6 refines stroke technique on all major competitive strokes and encourages swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle. For swimmer's safety, they should be able to swim front crawl, back crawl, and breaststroke for 25 yards.
Levels 1-3 introduce personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning swim, float swim and jump, push, turn, and grab.
Levels 4-5 help students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.
Health and Safety
Throughout the pandemic, we’ve consistently adapted our programs in partnership with our local health departments to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We focus on creating a clean and healthy environment for everyone with protocols that include masks and distancing, as well as regular cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting by our trained staff. Kids stay together in small groups with minimal exposure to other groups.
Learn more about all health and safety protocols.
During general registration, each member can only register for one class. During late registration, each child will be able to sign up for multiple classes but not two of the same. If there are multiple children in the same household, each one can register for the same class.
Membership is required for active participation in all parent and child programs, including Parent and Child Swim Lessons, and Toddler Gym. Membership is not required for parent viewing. However, one non-member parent/guardian with youth-only accounts may access the Y with the youth member. Photo identification and standard check-in process required.
How Our Youth Sports Leagues Help Develop Leaders
Values-Based: Coaches encourage building positive relationships, developing conflict resolution skills, and improving self-confidence in players.
Individual Growth: We believe every child deserves a chance to learn, grow, and thrive through youth sports participation.
Skill Development: Players learn to work as part of a team, practice to improve their skills, and work to become their best selves.
