Youth Sports

16 Basketball1466 TeeBall 1The REC Youth Sports Programs help kids become not only better players, but better people as well. We have progressive programs, with multiple age-specific levels.

Sports instructions at the REC focuses heavily on teaching basic skills and fundamentals. Every child gets to play half of every game, and the games are safe, exciting, and fun. We encourage fair play, positive competition, character building, teamwork, and family involvement.

47 IMG_0162Sports have always been a mainstay of the YMCA offerings for young people and the REC will continue this. Our Youth Sports Programs fill kid’s discretionary hours with positive 66 TeeBall 2activities and caring adult attention. They also provide important exercise and physical development.

Coaches, often parent volunteers, emphasize teamwork and cooperation rather then winning 17 Basketball111at any cost, and developing good core values rather than over-developing the next superstar. Every child can excel at the skills that matter most. The primary purpose of all REC leagues is to provide a fun and healthy environment for youth to participate in sports. All rules and 39 IMG_0066regulations should be interpreted accordingly. Fair play, good sportsmanship, and respect for all are expected of all players at all times. The REC philosophy is simple: ATHLETES FIRST, WINNING SECOND.
