The YMCA takes a holistic approach to youth development, even on the field or court. At the Y, sports staff, volunteers and coaches all strive for the vision of helping youth realize their potential through an emphasis on friendly competition, participation for all children, and a steadfast focus on teamwork and sportsmanship.
Additionally, participation in youth sports programs and exposure to positive role models like coaches help to build the character and social skills to succeed in many endeavors, even academics.
By building character on the court and field, YMCA youth athletes become champions beyond sports, and no matter the score.
The YMCA offers a variety of sports across the greater Houston area, includingbasketball, volleyball, soccer and NFL flag football. Teams are forming now! To secure a spot for your child on a YMCA team near you, visit ymcahouston.org.
