Family-Friendly Registration Process

Our registration process will allow you to choose the practice day and time that is most convenient for your family (except for volleyball). The practice day and time that you choose at registration will determine your team. Early registration is strongly encouraged as each team has a set number of participants and once a practice day and time has reached its player capacity that team will be full.

No waiting lists will be formed once a team is full.  We strongly encourage parents to check the website or call the branch to find out if an opening on a team has occurred.

PlayerSpace

This is an online sports platform that is utilized for simplifying communication among coaches, players and YMCA sports staff. PlayerSpace is where you will find your roster, practice and game schedules, as well as contact information for those on your team. If you do not have a PlayerSpace account, you will receive an email asking you to set one up once the teams have been assigned. If you have an existing account, please log in after the date that teams have been assigned. PlayerSpace will be used for basketball, soccer and volleyball.

Be a Coach!

As is the case with all recreational leagues, the Y program is built on dedicated volunteer coaches. If you are a great role model, have a fun-loving attitude, enjoy working with kids, and have good communication skills, you are qualified to become a head coach! The Y provides coach training and practice plans, along with help from staff members when needed. Coaching couldn’t get any easier! If you are interested, contact the Y staff listed below and tell them you want to make an impact this season! Coaches, please make sure to register your child as soon as possible to ensure they have a spot on the team, as we cannot hold spots on any team.
