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.
Prior to attending your first practice, all participants must read, sign and return the CDC Concussion Awareness Form. Please open the link:

Research shows that children who participate in afterschool programs are more successful in academics, are healthier, and more often maintain positive behaviors. Afterschool Programming at the Y is specially geared to achieve these results.
The Y’s curriculum framework offers comprehensive, age-appropriate, engaging care. Afterschool Programming focuses on eight core content areas: arts and humanities, character development, health and wellness, homework support, literacy, math and science, service learning, and social competence and conflict resolution.
The YMCA has recently adopted The Y’s Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Standards for Early Childhood and Afterschool Programs. These standards, when implemented fully, will show the Y’s commitment to being one of the largest and healthiest providers of early childhood education and afterschool programming in the nation.
