Sports are one way the Y nurtures the potential of youth and teens. Youth sports provide a structured opportunity for kids to learn the game, improve technique, stay active, build social skills, gain confidence and develop leadership. The focus is on teamwork in a positive environment where everyone plays and everyone is a part of the team.

YMCA Tournaments take playing sports a step further, showcasing teamwork and skills in action in a tournament setting typically runs throughout a weekend at several different YMCA branches. Our tournaments are open to Y teams and all teams. Rules are posted in advance and games are officiated by certified referees. First-place teams in each division receive individual trophies and second-place teams are awarded individual medals.
