Children reach their full potential when they are healthy in spirit, mind, and body. That's why the Y has committed resources to a wide range of youth development programs such as team sports! The Y connects kids to caring adult role models whose example and leadership teach critical character values and life skills ranging from how to be a good student, a good sport, and a good citizen. We will introduce the concept of each seasonal sport, develop the skill level of every player, promote teamwork and encourage sportsmanship. We see every season as an opportunity to invest in every child's potential and support families in nurturing their child's healthy lifestyle. The Y is a leader in youth development programs for the Sandhills community. Come join us to get in the game!


The YMCA Youth Sports Program helps kids become not only better players but better people as well. It's a progressive program, with multiple age-specific levels. Every child gets to play and the games are safe, exciting and fun. We encourage fair play, positive competition, and family involvement.
