YMCA - Odessa, TX



Programs > Youth Sports Programs

At the Odessa Family Y, our youth sports programs emphasize fun, participation, skills, safety, teamwork, low level competition, fair play, and family involvement. Kids as young as 3-years-old can participate in specific sports programs. All teams are organized on a neighborhood basis as much as possible and will practice once or twice a week. All practice sites, days, and times for each sport are determined by the coach at the coaches workshop. Game equipment is provided and the rules are modified to accommodate the young athletes. Each player will receive a T-shirt, quality coaching, and playing time in each game. Financial assistance may be available upon request.
