Sports

The Hagerstown YMCA Youth Sports programs are designed to give your children a safe learning environment, where the focus of the Programs is on Physical, Social, and Mental development. A few of our programs are competitive programs, but most are based upon learning the fundamentals of the Sport while learning the four core values of the YMCA of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility.

YMCA Youth Sports have modified rules to maximize Fun and increase sportsmanship and Fair Play.

The YMCA relies on Community participation for our programs to run successfully. We have over 200 volunteers a year creating great programs for your children, so please consider being a coach! Come and experience what it feels like to teach a child the importance of being physically active , and how sports can become an integral part in everyone’s lives.

Volunteers are necessary to make our programs work. If you would like information on sponsoring a team or volunteering your time as a coach or referee, please click here for more youth Sports information.
