Find Youth Programs & Activities
At the YMCA, we want to help your child form lasting friendships, build character, and strengthen core values through a variety of programs, sports, and activities tailored specifically towards youth development.
Youth who participate in Y activities and programs will learn about the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership. They will also have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to help them perform to the best of their ability. We believe that the lessons learned through playing sports and participating in a variety of activities will be carried on with them throughout their lives. We incorporate the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility into all of our programmings; giving children the solid foundation needed to thrive in school and beyond. We are proud to keep the youth of Indiana active, engaged, and healthy.
