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.

ASPIRE AT THE Y

No matter who you are or what neighborhood you grow up in, the Y is a place for anyone who needs us.

In Clinton County, we are working to combat childhood obesity, build confidence, and show children what they can achieve by their participation in youth sports.

Aspire at the Y is a partnership between the Clinton County Family YMCA and the Center Township Trustees Office to provide complimentary youth sports and swim lessons to children who reside in Center Township. Proof of residency through and ID or a piece of mail is required.
