Our youth sports classes and leagues are designed to help kids develop a love for sports, build skills and teaching the fundamentals of the game. 

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.

Preschool Sports & Sports Tykes
