Kickball

Fun for all ages! If you're looking for a game that will have every player running and laughing, you need to sign up for kickball! 7 week sessions

The first week runs from 5:30-6:30pm and is used for rating purposes, rules, and sportsmanship expectations. The players are then divided into 4 teams for the remainder of the program, based on age and overall skill. 

The program schedule will consist of weekly games that will all be played on Monday evenings.  
Each team will play for 45 minutes (5:30-6:15pm or 6:15-7:00pm).

Parent’s Night - We ask for one parent from each family to join us in a fun game and take on the kids!

Flag Football

Get your kids involved in Flag Football at the YMCA! Click below to see league offerings at our different YMCA facilities. 

Due to the Emergency Order from Governor Evers, we have had to make a few adaptations to be able to safely offer this program. Since social distancing is not always possible during flag football games and practices, the following adaptations were made with much consideration for the safety of the players, coaches and spectators: Face coverings must be worn by all players and coaches at all times and spectators/households must social distance from others while watching. If you are unable to social distance, we strongly encourage wearing a face covering.
