Coach and Volunteer

Positive Activities and Caring Adult Attention

A mainstay of YMCA offerings for young people, Y youth sports programs fill kids' discretionary hours with positive activities and caring adult attention. Coaches - most often volunteers, including many parents -- emphasize teamwork and cooperation over winning at any cost, developing good values over developing the next superstar. Basketball and volleyball, both YMCA inventions, are popular youth programs, as are flag football, T-ball, and soccer.
