BITTY & YOUTH PROGRAM GUIDE (Spring-Summer 2017)
BITTY SPORTS (Ages 3-5)
Our goal is to get kids to play and give them a positive, fun experience so they want to keep playing! Bitty Sports is an introductory program specifically for kids ages 3-5. Our games are designed to introduce kids to the basics of sports in creative, imaginative ways.
Bitty Sports are not sports leagues and we want parents on the field and court with our coaches! As a team, we can make sure your little athletes have a great time!
We offer Bitty Basketball, Soccer, T-Ball, and Cheer throughout the year.
BITTY T-BALL (Saturdays)
BITTY SOCCER (Tuesdays)
At the Y, we want kids to learn confidence while they learn to kick a ball and shoot a basket. We do not keep score or track of standings in any of our sports leagues because we want kids and parents to focus on fun, learning, and fitness! Nowhere else will you find sports for our prices because we think everyone should have the opportunity to play.
YOUTH INDOOR T-BALL (Ages 4-6)
This is a great option to learn the game of baseball, especially during the rainy, spring months! Our leagues emphasize teamwork, skill building, and most of all-FUN! Individuals of every ability and experience are welcome to play. Teams will have a weekly practice during the week and a game on Saturdays. Acceptable footwear includes flat-soled shoes, turf shoes, or molded cleats with rounded studs. For ages 4-6.
YOUTH INDOOR SOCCER (Ages 5-14)
Youth soccer at the Y is for kids who have never played before and for kids who want to keep playing when the weather is bad because we have the only indoor soccer facility in the area, the YMCA Sports Center in Bakerview Park! Year round we offer indoor soccer leagues for kids ages 5-14.
YOUTH BASKETBALL (Grades 1-4)
Youth Basketball is offered for kids who need to learn the basics in a safe, welcoming environment! Basketball has a special place in our heart…it was invented at the Y! Teams in the 1-2 grade league are coed, teams in the 3-4 grade may be coed depending on registration.
YOUTH INDOOR FLAG FOOTBALL (Ages 6-13)
If your child(ren) wants to play football all the time, then 4v4 indoor flag football at the Y is for your family! Give indoor flag football a try! Our league is for 1st-6th graders and for families who want to leave the overly-competitive atmosphere outside and just want to play! This is a great option for kids and parents who aren't quite ready for full contact and/or kids to really learn the basics of the complex game of football.
YOUTH VOLLEYBALL (Grades 3-8)
Join us for youth volleyball on our sports court at the YMCA Sports Center! This league is designed to emphasize skill development and fun. Participants will learn the basics of serving, setting, passing and spiking in a non-competitive environment.
