Q: How are teams formed?


  • Individually by school areas, grade and previous team assignment. 
  • Friend and/or coach request. No guarantees. 
  • The YMCA has final jurisdiction. 

Q: Why are teams divided by grade levels?


  • The YMCA believes it is important for participants to play with their friends in their own grade level. 
  • It is possible to play a grade level above. You will not be able to sign up using online registration. 
  • It is not possible for a child to play a grade level lower. 

Q: How are Coaches selected?


  • All coaches of the YMCA Youth Sports leagues are volunteer. 
  • Volunteering to coach a youth sports team can be a rewarding experience and a service to the youth of our community - but most of all - tons of fun! 
  • The YMCA will provide manuals, a clinic and mentors to get coaches started. 
  • Please mark on the registration form if you are interested in coaching.

Q: What about practices?


  • Practices are set up by the coach in cooperation with the players once per week for 1 hour. 
  • May begin after Coach Packet Pick-up.
  • Contact your coach about practice questions or cancellations. 

Q: How should Coaches and Fans conduct themselves?


  • Coaches/spectators need to remember that the Youth Sports leagues are designed for young people. 
  • We strive to incorporate a positive, low-key, less stressful, noncompetitive atmosphere for our participants. 
  • Inappropriate/negative behavior will not be permitted. Expulsion from the league is possible. 

Q: What about Financial Assistance?


  • Financial Assistance applicants must apply in person at our office, and the application will take 7 to 10 business days. 
  • Payments are based on income, number of dependents, etc. 
  • Payment is required when registering. 

Q: Registration Information?


  • Deadlines are established by our office to ensure time to prepare for the season. 
  • YMCA Member and Non-member rates are available online.
  • The Youth Sports office does not take registrations over the phone or fax machine.
