The YMCA Promise: Everyone plays. Everyone wins. YMCA Youth Sports strive to enhance every child's personal growth and development, sports skills, and fundamentals. Fair play and sportsmanship, values and a sense of teamwork and physical fitness are incorporated into all we do. And, on top of that, kids have fun!
YMCA Youth Sports programs fill kids' kiscretionary hours with positive activities and caring, adult attention. Coaches - often volunteers, including many parents - emphasize teamwork adn cooperation over winning at any cost. Developing good values is far more important than developing the next superstar.
The Quincy Family YMCA offers basketball, baseball, T-ball, flag football and tackle football for children ages 3-16. Contact the Quincy Y for more information. Y programs and services are available to the entire community, and no child is turned away due to inability to pay. Scholarships are available through our financial assistance program for those who qualify.
YMCA Sports Pledge: to be a team player and to respect my teammates, my opponents and officials and to improve myself in spirit, mind and body.
