Youth Sports & Rec
Our Youth Sports philosophy is simple – everyone plays and everyone wins. We emphasize good sportsmanship, fair play, and healthy competition with coaches who focus on teamwork and skill development.
We are excited to offer Youth Sports introduction and training as young as 3 years old! Our Preschool Sports Program is an excellent opportunity to introduce your little one to Soccer or Basketball practices as young as 3 years old, while our Youth Sports League will spark the competitive interest with team competition as young as 4 years old!
At this time, we have not yet resumed Preschool Sports due to Covid. We hope to have Preschool sports relaunched in the Fall.
Preschool Sports opportunities for children ages 3-5 years old. This is ideal for children who have not had any formal exposure to organized sport practice in the past. These sessions are practice-only formats designed for sport introduction basics.
Our preschool sports sessions run for just 4 weeks, 45 minutes each week and are FREE for members! Non-Members are welcome to register for just $35/session. We offer Basketball Sessions and Soccer Sessions. Pre-registration is required. Parent Participation is encouraged and Childwatch is available for siblings who are not participating.

We can also help your kids take their game to the next level with PRIVATE TRAINING SESSIONS. Lessons are available for individuals, small groups and teams throughout the year for Soccer, Football, Basketball, Volleyball and Swimming. The cost for four sessions of 30 minutes is $68 for Y members and $88 for non-members. Group rates are also available. If you are interested in Private Trainings, please email Bob Voeller for additional information.
If your kids are in our afterschool program, we provide transportation from most Martin County middle and elementary schools. They’ll come to the Y for afterschool care, then can jump right into youth sports, swim lessons or swim team activities. No need to leave work early – we’ll get them where they need to be!
The YMCA is unique when it comes to sports. We believe that sports offer a very effective way to teach participants about life skills and values. The relationships they build on the court/field translate directly to their ability to communicate off of the playing field. It’s all about positive, healthy relationships.
We are always in need of VOLUNTEER COACHES! If your team is listed please consider coaching this season. Being involved in our child’s sports team is something you and your child will always remember, start making great memories now!
