YMCA YOUTH SPORTS


At the Birmingham YMCA, all sports programs follow the YMCA mission. We believe that if we focus on good sportsmanship, individual development, and are helping players develop healthy spirits, minds, and bodies, we have bettered our communities and youth as a whole. The YMCA focuses on caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility as our four core values to teach a child good sportsmanship. Players develop all their skills, from dribbling to teamwork to catching and throwing. They see the benefits of being healthy and active and build relationships with peers in a recreational environment. Giving youth the opportunity to develop in a safe and competitive recreational space where valuable life skills are gained is what our youth sport programs do for our community.

HOW WE DO IT...


Volunteer Coaches:


Our YMCAs rely on the help of our volunteers to deliver the best experience for our youth in all our sports. They are the direct link between players and the  inshaping the quality of the sports YMCA. They support the league directors in shaping the quality of the sports program and communicate to parents on a regular basis. All of our coaches undergo yearly background screenings, safety courses, and child abuse prevention courses to ensure the safety of our young players.   

       
Our Players


Every player is placed on a team and coached by a volunteer. There are no try-outs or cuts. Our goal is that each partic-ipant will play at least half of each game. All players will have the opportunity to play different positions in the game if the sport allows.

Membership is just the beginning of belonging
