Register Now for Fall Youth Sports What Makes YMCA Youth Sports so Special?

August 23, 2011

 As the summer is winding down and families start thinking about back to school and fall activities for kids, the YMCA is gearing up for their fall youth sports season.

What makes YMCA Youth Sports so special and what should parents consider when selecting a sports program for their young athlete? Kids learn so much through sports, such as skills and positive attitudes they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. Enriching their personal development is the goal of YMCA Youth Sports, a unique sports program that combines the YMCA’s philosophy of fair play, teamwork and inclusiveness with program concepts and resources based on the latest youth sports research.

 

As a result of this research, the knowledge of sport scientists who have spent their careers studying children’s sports and the practical wisdom of YMCA youth sports directors who have guided literally millions of young people through sports programs, the Seven Pillars of YMCA Youth Sports was developed.

 

Everyone Plays: We do not use tryout to select the best players, nor do we cut kids from Y Youth Sports. Everyone who registers is assigned to a team. During the season everyone receives equal practice time and plays at least half of every game.

Safety First: Although children may get hurt playing sports, we do all we can to prevent injuries. We’ve modified each sport to make it safer and more enjoyable to play. Sports Directors and Coaches are instructed to make sure the equipment and facilities are safe, to teach skills that are appropriate for children’s developmental level, gradually develop the players’ fitness levels so they are conditioned for the sport and constantly supervise the athletes.

Character Development: YMCA programs teach the YMCA values of Honesty, Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Faith. We are more interested in developing children’s character through sports than in developing a few highly skilled players. The YMCA strongly believes that it’s necessary to teach the values so that we can build strong kids and families.

Positive Competition: Competition can be a positive process when the pursuit of victory remains in the right perspective. Learning to compete is important for children and learning to cooperate in a competitive world is an essential lesson of life. Through Y Youth Sports, we want to help children learn these lessons.

Family Involvement: YMCA Youth Sports encourages parents to be involved appropriately in their child’s participation. In addition to parents helping as volunteer coaches, officials and timekeepers, we encourage them to be at practices and games to support their child’s participation.

Sport for All: YMCA Youth Sports is an inclusive sport program. That means all young athletes are included rather than excluded regardless of their race, gender, religious creed, characteristics or ability. We ask our adult leaders to encourage and appreciate the diversity of children in our society and to encourage the children and their parents to do the same.

Sport for Fun: Sports are naturally fun for most children. They love the challenge of mastering the skills of the game, playing with their friends and competing with their peers. Coaches and parents are reminded not to over organize or dominate the activity to the point that it destroys the child’s enjoyment of the sport. Sports are for kids . . . let them have Fun!

 

The Y Youth Sports program encourages and promotes healthy and strong kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team building as well as individual development, a positive self image and a sense of fair play & mutual respect for others. Caring adult coaches and volunteers create an asset rich environment in which children learn and practice the core values of responsibility, honesty, respect, caring and faith. YMCA Youth Sports programs are a great start to a lifetime of fitness and values. As with all programs at the YMCA, Youth Sports is also centered around our mission; To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

 

Registrations are underway for the fall sports season.  The sports to be offered include Soccer for ages 3 – 11, Baseball for ages 6 – 11, T-Ball for ages 3 – 5, Volleyball for ages 6 – 13 years, Tiny Tot Basketball for ages 3 – 4, Basketball for ages 5 – 13, NFL Flag Football for ages 5 – 13, and Cheerleading for ages 6 – 12. . (Age eligibility as of 09-01-11). Registration deadline is August 28 with the season scheduled to begin early September.  Most games are played on Saturdays.

 

The YMCA offers limited financial assistance to individuals and families, who substantiate a need, so that YMCA programs are accessible to every person in our community regardless of income level. Everyone is welcome.

 

To register please stop by the South County YMCA located at 6145 Shadowbend Place or 8100 Ashlane Way in the Woodlands For more information, please call 281-367-9622 or visit www.ymcahouston.org/south-montgomery-county.  On line registration is available for current members at http://www.ymcahouston.org.
