ROOKIE SPORTS

Play with The Y and experience why 90% of players want to play with YMCA again. Our Rookie Sports program is intended to introduce sports to young children through instruction from our volunteer coaches. Practices will be ran similar to a clinic to help teach fundamentals and basic skills. No structured game time will take place but coaches may decide to organize scrimmages throughout the duration of the program. This program is at no extra cost to members of the YMCA (excluding the $15 Jersey Fee).
