YOUTH SOCCER

Youth Soccer

 

The YMCA fall and spring soccer programs are progressive programs with age-specific levels.

Every child gets to play in a safe, exciting and fun atmosphere. We encourage fair play, positive competition, and family involvement.

Parents are encouraged to volunteer as coaches and helpers.

Care to Coach - If you love kids and have basic soccer knowledge, you can make an impact as a volunteer coach. Must have basic knowledge of youth soccer, and be the main contact/communicator for team families.  Children of parent coaches will not be charged for the season. 

Equipment Needed: The YMCA provides jerseys. We strongly suggest shin guards for all ages. Cleats are suggested as well, sneakers are acceptable to play in if desired. Cleating must be 100% plastic. We recommend Play-it-again sports for your sporting purchases.
