Age Groups

This sport is for boys and girls ages 3 to 17 years old.  The children are grouped together in divisions that are broken down into 2-year increments.  

3-4 year old sports are instructional clinics that introduce children to a sport and prepare them to play at the league level.

Age limits may vary by branch, so check with your local YMCA for league details.
