Youth Sports Mission Statement
The YMCA Youth Sports Program strives to help youth become not only better players, but better people as well. We do this by incorporating the YMCA Focus Areas of being for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility into everything we do. Our programs promote healthy youth, family involvement, skill development, healthy competition and most importantly FUN!
Youth Sports Philosophy
At the YMCA, we know that to stick with anything, you must experience success. We want all of our participants to experience success, by improving their skills and having fun; so that they will continue to make sports and being active a part of their lives. We accomplish this by focusing on our Core Values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and these key aspects:
The YMCA of the Fox Cities is an Activate America YMCAs. This means that we are encouraging everyone to be active, including youth! Sports are a great way for kids to be active.
Friends & Family
Our Youth Sports Programs are also designed for kids to play on the same team as friends and to make new ones. Playing on a team is a great way to get to know other kids and families. Youth Sports Programs also give parents the opportunities to coach their children and enjoy sports as a family.
Our leagues are instructional leagues. This means that our focus is teaching fundamental skills and how to incorporate them into game play, all while having fun!
Our goal is that every participant is having fun. To help ensure this, we make sure that everyone plays and plays fair. We focus on teamwork and fun, instead of winning and losing!
