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.
- We teach and strengthen the skills of every child for the sports they love to play.
- We instill and develop the YMCA character values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility through key elements such as teamwork and good sportsmanship.
- We ensure that every child enjoys the time they spend in our programming by making friends and having fun.
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.
