Building Skills, Confidence, and Character

YMCA Preschool Sports encourage and promote healthy kids, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others. Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches—as well as being their kid’s greatest fan.
