Kids who participate in week-long Summer Sports at the Y discover so much more than their athletic abilities. They build character, develop self-confidence and create healthy relationships through positive competition. Kids of all skill levels and abilities can choose from a variety of sports to explore this summer. Friday Play Days give participants the opportunity to put their hard work and new skills into action at the end of each week.
