Kids In Sports

5 Week Sessions: July 1 - July 26

The Y has partnered with Kids In Sports, a team of sports educators, who’ve created an expertly designed curriculum that is innovative, age-appropriate, and fun!

Their multi-sport program for younger children grows with your child–from adult participation to separation classes. Older children learn the fundamentals of specific team sports, and at every age your child gains important life skills like taking instruction, working in groups, and sportsmanship. These classes begin to focus children on the principles of six sports (soccer, basketball, baseball, football, volleyball, and hockey), teaching fundamentals of sports moves and general game play rules.

Kids In Sports take pride in nurturing the development of your whole child. With a low student-to-coach ratio, they will help each child grow in the confidence and skills they need to succeed in sports, school, and life.

Home Run Heroes T-Ball Clinic

July 13 - August 17

Introducing our new summer T-ball clinic for children aged 3 to 5! Over six dynamic weeks, we’ll introduce your little ones to the world of T-ball with engaging activities tailored just for them. From learning the basics of batting, catching, and throwing to refining their skills in hitting, fielding, and base running in subsequent weeks, each session is packed with fun drills, games, and teamwork exercises. As they progress through the program, they’ll develop essential coordination, communication, and teamwork skills while having a blast on the field. Our goal is to create a positive and supportive environment where every child can thrive and build confidence, culminating in a fun-filled T-ball game at the end of the clinic.
