Sports Youth Leagues | West Suburban YMCA

Youth Sports Leagues

Our leagues offer children a safe and positive environment, supportive coaches, and new friendships while they learn and improve their skills. We put your child in the game with children their age/skill level as they learn sportsmanship, develop their skills and gain a sense of accomplishment, no matter the outcome of the game. Each program utilizes the Y’s seven principles: everyone plays, safety first, fair play, positive competition, family involvement, sports for all, and sports for fun.
