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. Participants will work daily on skill building and travel to other Y locations for Friday Play Days, this allows them to put their hard work into action. We encourage kids to bring their own specialized sports equipment (cleats, shin guards, glove, etc.), all fundamental equipment will be provided by the Y. A wide variety of sports are offered for kids of all skill levels and abilities.
