Overview

Sports leagues are a great way for teens in grades 9-12 to stay active, continue honing their skills, meet new friends and have fun. Sports vary by location and time of year.

Leagues include the space and equipment needed to play, plus an official to score each game. The YMCA does not provide uniforms. You play a minimum of 8 games over 8 weeks
