When kids play Y-Sports, they develop more than skills—they develop character. Instructors and coaches—often volunteers and including many parents—model fairness and hard work while emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values in this program. Our volunteer coaches recognize achievements large and small and understand that winning is not just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team. Everyone plays, everyone wins!
Our YMCA offers year round sports leagues for children between the ages of 3 and 15 in Stockton and Lodi. For the younger participants (3-9 years of age), the emphasis is on building character, skills development and fundamentals of the game. Our older group (9-15 years of age) is a bit more competitive; the program keeps score and has a more intense atmosphere.
We impart the Four Values of the YMCA; Honesty, Caring, Responsibility, and Respect at all of our practices and games.
Our youth sports program is fee based with financial assistance available for those who qualify.
