The Y is a national leader in youth sports and out-of-school programming, with a proven track record of engaging, encouraging and empowering kids through sports. We want all kids to have the opportunity to try out different sports and gain the self-confidence to reach their full potential. By focusing on learning the skills and team work needed to play sports, we inspire girls and boys to get active. Plus, friendships grow as kids play sports, encourage one another and have fun together!
All of our baseball leagues are co-ed to offer boys and girls the opportunity to join a local baseball league. We offer three introductory levels of coed baseball: tee ball, coed baseball coach pitch and coed baseball advanced coach pitch leagues. Register your kids today in one of our leagues to inspire kids to stay fit and have fun.
One of our most popular local sports leagues, we have basketball leagues for players of all skill levels. We have a men’s basketball league for all players 18 or older and leagues for players under the age of 18. Members and non-members can join each league as long as there’s room on the roster.
Youth and adult flag football leagues are a way for everyone to stay active and enjoy football. Non-tackle football reduces the risk of injuries while teaching youths the fundamentals of football so that they can enhance their skill and have fun. The flag football league keeps kids and adults active.
Kids as young as four years old can join us at Countryside YMCA to learn how to play soccer, improve their speed and coordination and learn how to play as a team. Our indoor leagues are available for kids aged 4 to 10, and most of the games are on Saturday to make scheduling easier for parents.
There are so many advantages to signing your children up for the Y’s sports leagues. Sports can help your children:
When children play sports, they develop critical healthy habits that will follow them for the rest of their lives.
The Y’s sports leagues help kids stay physically active, making it easier to maintain a healthy weight. In addition, when physical activity becomes a part of a child’s normal routine, it’s much easier for them to carry these habits into adulthood.
Physical exercise can help children:
Sports also help children develop confidence and develop interpersonal skills that will benefit them throughout their entire lives.
Playing sports is a great opportunity to socialize and make new friends. They also learn how to play (or work) with others and become team players – another important life skill.
Joining a sports league means making a commitment to attending practices, games and other events. Children learn discipline and commitment by showing up and being held accountable for their actions.
