Many positive aspects of psychological growth can result from sports participation including higher self-esteem, social skills, discipline, and respect for others. As with all YMCA programs the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are stressed through all our sports programs.
YMCA sports camps are offered for children who want to develop skills and techniques while learning the value of teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play. Each camp will include drills, skill development, learning the rules of the game, and actual play.
Let’s face it, life is busy and stressful so adults need activities to help reduce stress. The Y has so many choices to help with that. We can help you form an exercise and nutrition plan, but why not also try something new?
