Preschool/Bitty Sports

Your kids will love our instructional sports programs that introduce them to the fundamentals of sports of all sorts! Parents love that the YMCAs four core values—respect, responsibility, honesty, and caring—are infused into every class so that kids focus on the value of sportsmanship and healthy competition, rather than rivalry, right from the start! And every kid plays! These programs encourage team building, individual development, positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others.
