CURRENT YOUTH SPORTS

Winter Developmental Basketball

Basketball at the Y will look a little different this Winter. Our focus will strictly be on developing your child’s skill level and less on competitive play. Players will sign up for one practice night and will meet for seven practices. Each practice will last an hour with 30 minutes of skill development and 30 minutes of an inter-team scrimmage. Players will receive a jersey and medal at the end of the session.   

Ages: 3-14
Season: 7-Week Season | Jan. 11 – Feb. 25, 2021
Cost: $50 members, $85 nonmembers

SCUFC/YMCA Spring Soccer

Participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out. Practices include specific drills to help children develop motor skills and improve coordination, but most importantly, the Y soccer league emphasizes teamwork, fair play, self-confidence, and fun. Volunteers coach our teams to help build skills and encourage character development in a non-competitive environment.

Age Groups:  3-6 (Soccer Start), 7-19 (Rec League)
Season: Feb. 15 – May 1, 2021

Adult Sports

We believe 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. Whether you miss “suiting up” or are new to team sports, the Y’s sports leagues provide a perfect opportunity to be active, social and reconnect or start fresh with a sport you love. We hold adult basketball, flag football, soccer and volleyball leagues throughout the year and offer tennis lessons.
