Soccer

YMCA soccer leagues offer a safe and productive environment for your child to learn the fundamentals of soccer as well as the importance of teamwork.  Children will have an opportunity to play the game from different positions during the course of the season.  Equal playing time, sportsmanship, and fun are emphasized.  A good pair of athletics shoes or cleats and shin guards are required.
