Build Good Sportsmanship at the YMCA

The Harrisburg Area YMCA provides a place where everyone plays and everyone wins! That’s why we work hard to provide youth sports teams for all ages and abilities. We offer youth sports programs for every interest. We focus on both healthy living and youth development in a safe and fun atmosphere.  Your child can join the fun and stay healthy and active with some friendly competition!

All youth sports teams and programs offer a comfortable atmosphere for your children to learn their sports while making friends. Kids and teens playing sports at the Y will see their skills improve while being part of a team with goals bigger than themselves.  There is value in playing on a team, and we encourage youth to join our sports teams in order to learn valuable new skills, discipline, and encouragement.

No matter what programs you enroll in, our welcoming staff helps children build self-esteem, develop teams and interpersonal skills, and help youth realize their positive mentally and physically. Whether you’re learning a new sport and its basic fundamentals or advancing your skills in a particular sport, the YMCA offers programs for all levels from beginner to advanced athlete.

Sports offer a great avenue for youth to learn a variety of skills and develop their character. Find out what sports are available at a branch near you!

Child Safety

At the Y, child safety and protection is our number one priority.  Our goal is to help educate parents and children on how to be safe from child abuse in any environment with the skills they learn at our Y.  Our team is trained in comprehensive and innovative practices around child safety to ensure your children are safe in our care.
