Superior Douglas County Family YMCA

YOUTH SPORTS

The Y Youth Sports Program is an excellent way to introduce your child to the popular sports of flag football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, and t-ball. This program teaches the skills in each sport, while also focusing on the development of hand-eye coordination and motor-skills. Players learn the concepts of team work and fair play while interacting with other children. These programs place a high emphasis on having fun & ensuring that each player has equal opportunity to play.

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 provide information on the registration form.
CURRENT PROGRAMS

T-Ball

A great intro to America’s Pastime for all youth entering a 4K program, through 2nd Grade! Coaches work on the basic skills during Tuesday practices and players test these skills during Thursday games. Playing time is equal amongst all participants with emphasis placed on skill development.

Practices begin June 12 and games begin June 21.

Practices are Tuesdays and games are Thursdays, both at Bayside Baptist Church in Billings Park. Each are scheduled to last one hour. YMCA provides all necessary equipment except baseball gloves/mitts. Every player received a team shirt to keep.
