Make Youth Sports Work for Your Family!


May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, and the YMCA of the Greater Tri-Cities understands that youth sports can be a big commitment – but there are ways to make it work! The Y offers scholarships to help combat any financial barriers. All of our sports programs play games right here in our area, so travel costs are not an issue.

Remember, children need 60 minutes of activity every day and sports can help them get it! Weekly practices and games build activity into their routine while giving them all 3 types of activity they need:

  • Aerobic (making their hearts beat faster, like running)
  • Muscle Strengthening (building muscle with activities like throwing)
  • Bone Strengthening (activities like jumping)

When children and teens can do a mix of activities – like running, jumping, skating, swimming, throwing and playing – they get the mix they need to stay healthy!
