Youth Sports

We are focused on nurturing the potential of every child. Through the Y’s youth sports programs, we want to help children improve their skills, make new friends, be active with other kids while learning sportsmanship.   Activity helps the body grow; thinking advances the mind; and belief makes our spirit grow.

Our sports programs provide children with opportunities to learn specific sports skills in a supportive atmosphere. The programs are conducted with emphasis on the positive personal growth of the child. We balance the development of physical skills with other important aspects of sports, such as leadership, teamwork and cooperation. Above all, kids who participate in Y youth sports have a lot of fun. And our philosophy is “everybody plays, everybody wins.”

Each sport is a six-week season with one practice held during the week and games played on Saturday mornings.  All practices and games are held at Freedom Field in Ocean Springs.  All teams are Co-ed.  Your fee includes the sports jersey, team equipment and trophy.

We’re seeking volunteers interested in encouraging, guiding and training young athletes at the Y.  Our volunteer coaches make YMCA youth sports possible, and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character. We rely on volunteers to coach sports leagues throughout the year. Contact your Y for details on how you can get involved.
