The YMCA strives to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We emphasize teamwork, good sportsmanship, self esteem and a respect for one another. YMCA Youth Sports leagues are different from competitive club leagues in that everyone receives equal practice and play time. We’ve also modified each sport to make it safer and more enjoyable to play. Through our sports programs, we grow all participants regardless of ability, gender, race, or religious creed. We encouraging parents and coaches to support our kids with positive reinforcement and believe competition is a positive process when the pursuit of victory is kept in the right perspective.
YMCA youth sports register players whether you are a YMCA member or not and play among other YMCA branches. Our leagues are divided into age-ranges (3-14yo) and are both co-ed and gender specific. Registration is on-line (first-come) and you select the practice day (Team) convenient to your schedule. Our leagues are officiated with experienced YMCA staff. Our coaches are volunteers and given tools to make their efforts pay off. Flag Football, Soccer and Girls Volleyball are offered in the Spring and Fall. Baseball is a summer sport and basketball is offered in the winter months.
All our Sports leagues include: Registration onto a roster, (10) practice weeks and (8) concurrent game weeks, full uniforms and player achievement medallions. The success of our youth sports programs depends on volunteer coaches and keeping them informed. Our branch now offers a comprehensive sports orientation and training/clinic course for each of our (5) core sports. All coaches need to fill out and submit our Request To Coach Form and we highly recommend enrolling in our free Sports E-learning Course.
All YMCA Youth Sports depend on all participants to behave in accordance with common-sense responsibility and character. To codify our expectations, we have adopted a Code Of Conduct policy whose guidelines are a minimum listing, but is not limited to, best practices for a rewarding and pleasurable experience for all. In those situations where behavior is deemed outside of our core values, and directed to either fellow participants, family members, staff or officials, the YMCA reserves the right and responsibility to dis-associate our program from that individual(s). Coaches are mandated to read, sign and return this form prior to coaching any team within the Birmingham YMCA branches.
The YMCA is the place where many youth will begin their journey on becoming and staying active and developing healthy habits that will continue throughout their lives. And, the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in aquatics at the YMCA is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
The recreation pool is 25 yards long, with a depth range of 0 - 4.9 feet. It is covered in the off-season for year-round availability. The whirlpool is located between the girls and boys family locker room.

If the child does not pass the test or does not want to take the test, he or she will receive a red wristband and will need to do one of the following: the child must wear a life jacket; or if no life jacket is worn, an adult 18 or older must be in the pool with the child no more than an arm's length away.
All participants under the age of 14 must follow these guidelines.
