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.
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 just $15/month for members! Non-Members are welcome to register for just $40/session. We offer Basketball Sessions and Soccer Sessions in a skill-building practice format. Pre-registration is required.

Functional Sports Training – Next Session is TBA . . .
This all new approach to Youth Sports will combine Sport-Specific training for either Football or Soccer with a Sports Conditioning component to enhance your athletes speed and agility. A 4 week training program designed to enhance your off-season workout or supplement your current workout. Broken down by age division, this series will be age appropriate, so it’s also a great way to get your younger athlete back into the sports mode without a full season commitment. Session Calendar with practice days and times will be released when the next session dates are released.
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!
