As one school year comes to a close, it's time to start thinking about next school year! Give your kids something to look forward to in YMCA Flag Football!
We offer a league with one game per week on Saturday mornings at Valley Stadium on the artificial turf! This means no rain-outs and no dirty clothes! Practice once per week on a night of the team's choice to maintain a balanced lifestyle for your young athlete.
Here at the YMCA, everybody plays and everybody wins. We guarantee equal playing time for everyone and opportunities to play different positions. Everyone likes to win, but we focus on character development through the YMCA 4 Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Caring and Honesty.
Teams are coached by parent volunteers (background checks for all) so this is a great opportunity to bond with your kid(s). What's that? You don't have any background in football? That doesn't mean you can't coach - maybe as an assistant! Organizing the kids in practice or handling team communication are great ways anyone can help!
Interested? Talk to the parents of your child's friends and get a team started! If you have questions or would like to get started, email me at Derek.Hannah@dmymca.org.
It might be too early for your child to go sports crazy, but it's never too early to start picking up the life tools that sports can teach. The Y is the perfect place for both those reasons.
