Sports & Recreation

Whether you miss “suiting up” or are new to team sports, the Y’s sports leagues and recreation programs provide a perfect opportunity to get active, get social and get connected with a sport you love. Adult sports programs include basketball, soccer, master swim, and our annual Senior Games.

And YMCA Youth Sports programs ─ soccer, basketball, flag football and tennis ─ develop more than skills. They develop character. With the help of great coaches and mentors, we instill the positive values, teamwork and confidence kids need to thrive.

Basketball Programs

If you're missing your old intramural days or you're looking for a little friendly competition, the Y has a number of opportunities to get you back in the game!
