Clinton County Family YMCA

YOUTH SPORTS

All YMCA Youth Sports programs are designed to teach children the fundamentals of each sport while emphasizing the six pillars of good character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, citizenship, fairness, and caring.

In addition, our team sports programs encourage sportsmanship and family involvement, provide all participants play time, aim to keep winning in perspective, emphasize safety and progressive skill development, train volunteers to be coaches and officials, and are open to all members of our Clinton County Family YMCA community.

The cost to participate in youth sports is $30 for Members and $60 for Non Members. If you are a resident of Center Township, there is no cost for youth sports courtesy of our Aspire at the Y program. If you are outside of Center Township and need financial assistance to enroll your child in one of our programs please fill our a Financial Assistance application at the front desk.
