Youth Sports Programs

Empowering Children With Friendly Competition!

The Juniata Valley YMCA nurtures the potential of children through the youth sports programming by strengthening character in our youth, engaging families, and buidling lasting relationships.

Participants in these programs develop skills, learn about teamwork, and focus on sportsmanship. They set individual and team goals, building confidence, increasing self-esteem, and improving physical conditioning. Youth will have the opportunity to learn social skills and establish healthy habits that can last a lifetime. There are even opportunities for family involvement through volunteering as coaches, team parents, and committee members.
