Adult Sports

Sports, fun and exploring new interests aren't just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there's the added benefit of being connected to others. That's why you'll find a range of recreational activities at the Y. With something to offer everyone, there's no such thing as being too old to get in the game.

New Early Bird Registration Pricing for Youth & Toddler Sports! Beginning in July 2017, we will offer early bird registration pricing for our youth & toddler sports. Post-registration fees will be in place after the registration deadline. Sign up early and save!

​Youth & Toddler Sports has a new look for 2018!
Our athletes will receive a brand new reversible jersey to use & keep for all their Y Sports...included with your program fees! Lose the jersey or want an extra? They will be available for purchase.


When kids play Y-Sports, they develop more than skills—they develop character. Instructors and coaches—often volunteers, including many parents—model fairness and hard work while emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values in our non-competitive programs. Our volunteer coaches recognize achievements large and small and understand that winning is not just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team. Everyone plays, everyone wins.

Toddler Soccer

Both boys and girls ages 2-5 are welcome to participate in the Y’s instructional indoor soccer program. Game days will consist of 30 minute practice and 30 minute game. Fundamentals and good sportsmanship are stressed. Volunteer coaches are always needed.
