At the Y, we believe all children should have the chance to learn healthy lifestyles, grow in leadership skills, and thrive among their peers. Our Youth Sports program approaches that belief in three ways.
The West Cook YMCA offers exciting sports programs. Whether its gaining the confidence that comes with learning a new sport or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork or learning new skills, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole athlete, inside and out. Selecting a sport program to participate can be as simple as selecting one you or your child have enjoyed. However, sometimes it makes sense to think through your/your child’s fitness goals and what you enjoy doing. Sports offer the opportunity to participate individually or as a team, and challenges participants in different ways through endurance, speed, mental toughness, teamwork, strength and coordination.
Shoot and score with Biddy Ball for your child. This program is designed to teach the basketball basics of passing, dribbling, shooting, defense and teamwork in a fun and entertaining instructional class setting.
This program is designed to teach basic fundamentals of soccer in a fun and exciting way. Dribbling, passing and shooting will be covered through activities that keep everyone moving. This program is great for coordination and self-esteem.
Families and children will learn and play a variety of sports, which include basketball, kickball, T-ball, floor hockey, soccer, etc. Please register the child for the class and the 1-2 adults who would be attending (already included in the fee).
Build on fundamental skills through high intensity, challenging drills for intermediate to elite athletes to take their game to the next level. Skills include game time situations, making moves off the dribble, and finishing at the basket.
Come join us for fun in this fast paced activity. We will learn the fundamentals of floor hockey, work on stick handling, passing, positioning, shooting and other hockey skills through drill instruction. We will play a short game at the end of each day.
