The Y is the starting point for many kids to learn about becoming and staying active. Our Youth Sports programs promote healthy habits that they'll carry with them throughout their lives. We place priority on participation over winning, team building, developing as an individual, fair play and mutual respect for others. 

Our programs are led by dedicated Y staff and volunteers who have a passion for youth. Youth will gain a sense of belonging while developing skills and values. At the Glacial Community YMCA, everybody plays!
