GET IN THE GAME
At the Athens-McMinn Family YMCA, sports and recreational activities are something special. Friendly competition, lots of variety and a supportive environment means team sports and recreation is fun again. Whether your child misses "suiting up" or is new to team sports, the Y's sports leagues provide a perfect opportunity to be active, social and reconnect with friends in the sport they love. Basketball, tumbling and T-Ball are just some of the options available to get your child on the court or on the field. We also offer various sports camps throughout the year to work with you kids on technique, skills, and team work.
Instructors and Coaches - often volunteers and many parents - model fairness and hard work while emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values in our sports programs. We are always looking for volunteer coaches that will recognize achievements large and small and understand that winning is not just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team. Everyone plays - Everyone wins!!!
