TOUCH DOWN FOR SOME FUN!

This recreational program is designed for those who want to learn how to play the sport, brush up on the fundamentals, practice tactics, skills, improve their game and most importantly - have FUN!

Our focus is on football education, participation, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Players will be moved all over the field to play multiple positions.

Teams will have at least one practice during the week with games scheduled on Saturdays. This league is co-ed for boys & girls grades 1st through 6th with individual grade divisions.

YMCA programs are made possible thanks to Volunteer Coaches:
Parents and Guardians are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches - as well as being their kid’s greatest fan.

Volunteer Coaches

The YMCA relies on volunteer coaches for the success of the league. 

Volunteer coaches are assigned during team placement - some teams do not have any parents or guardians volunteer to coach. In those cases the Sports & Recreation Director will look for one of the parents or guardians on the team to become the designated coach.

The YMCA can provide training resources and practice plans for each coach. Volunteers help develop their community through cause-driven leadership.
