Superior Douglas County Family YMCA

YOUTH SPORTS

Some of the best work comes from all the amazing Volunteer Coaches
Youth sports at the Y are a success in large part because of all the volunteer coaches! Each team in each league is coached, often by a parent, on a volunteer basis. Each Youth Sports program has opportunities for volunteers to coach, assist and referee games. If you’re a parent of a child enrolling in a youth sport and would like to be a coach, please answer accordingly in the online enrollment form for your chosen sport. If you don't have a child in the sport, contact us for more information. Jon Reimer: jreimer@superiorymca.org OR Shawn Pagnucci: shawnp@superiorymca.org.

ACTIVE Youth Sports programs



Indoor Soccer
For youth between the ages of 4 - 12

Here is a great warm-up for the outdoor season! Join our Y-Staff this season as a volunteer parent-coach or simply show your support from the sidelines as we work with your kids to develop soccer skills while also teaching them important character development qualities. Coaches benefit from our station-to-station practices & scrimmages designed to help all players gain in skill and confidence.

All practices are Tuesdays for 9-12 Division and Thursdays for 4-5 and 6-8 Divisions. Specific practice times depend upon league size. Please see schedules below for specific informati

All but two games are Saturday mornings at the Y. Specific game times depend upon league size, but will begin no earlier than 10:00AM.

Outdoor Soccer
For youth between the ages of 4 - 12

This introductory-level program is great for beginners but also competetive enough for seasoned "veterans." Did you compete in the Indoor Soccer campaign? Build off that momentum and enjoy the outdoor season as well!
New this year:
  • GUARANTEED small team sizes - based upon the division of play, teams are guaranteed to be held to player-friendly sizes to optimize time on the field.
  • COMMUNICATIONS will all come directly from YMCA sports staff!
  • SAFE SPORT ACT requires that all practices & games be directly supervised by trained adult YMCA staff. This will help keep ALL practices & games organized & productive!
  • SAME SITE PRACTICES & GAMES - all teams will practice and play games at the 28th St/Mall Drive soccer fields across from Superior Senior High School.
  • OPTIONAL TEXT ALERTS - we've begun to use Remind as an opt-in tool to receive text alerts for weather-related announcements along with any other change in schedule.
  • YMCA provided soccer balls, goals and cones for all practices & games
  • NEW NEW NEW! Working with Y-USA and their Character Development & Learning Institute, we are beginning to introduce some exciting new components into our practice plans that we believe will help answer the question, "Why do we do Youth Sports?" We believe that youth will leave our programs with more than "just" sport-specific skills.

  • Season begins with the Meet & Greet on May 11th
  • Play begins with practices May 14th for the youngest division & May 16th for everyone else
  • Games begin May 18
  • Season concludes on Saturday, June 29
