Sports Academy

Welcome to the YMCA Sports Academy home page!

We are extremely honored that you have chosen the YMCA as your and your child’s recreational sports outlet.  We pledge to give you our best and to serve your child in sport, character and ministry.

At the YMCA Sports Academy our goal is two-fold…7th-9th Grade BBall League

First to provide top-notch sports training programs that are designed to assist each participant with the growth and development of their individual skill levels while teaching teamwork and sportsmanship.  Secondly, we strive to use the avenue of sports to teach and incorporate the character values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

This mission and message is accomplished by our sports staff in many forms through a variety of youth and adult sports programs and leagues.  So be sure to check out each sport category to find a program that fits you or your child’s passion…and on behalf of the YMCA and its sports staff, thanks for letting us serve you and your child through sport and ministry.
