Our Approach to Youth Sports

Our sports programs keep kids active, teach friendly competition and introduce healthy practices for life. Explore our activities and learn why physical activity is so important for a child’s growth and well-being.
Our sports staff, coaches and volunteers encourage children to reach their full potential. Sports and recreation at the Y create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, learn to work as a team and connect with positive role models — all in an inclusive environment.

No Tryouts -- Everyone Plays


At the YMCA of Wayne County there are no tryouts - everybody plays!! Kids as young as three begin learning basic skills and working together as a team. Youth Sports provide a fun introduction to soccer, volleyball, baseball, football and basketball and help keep kids active. In the process, kids learn to care about others, be honest, show respect and be responsible.
