It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you learn the game. At the Burbank Community YMCA, our Youth Sports programs are character driven and kids develop all of their skills, from passing and dribbling, to teamwork and sportsmanship. Just as important, they learn firsthand the benefits of being healthy and active and that virtual games just can't compare to the real thing. We are committed to an "everyone plays" philosophy, so there are no benchwarmers and all children are active, engaged and having fun.
The Burbank YMCA stresses child-oriented attitudes by keeping winning in perspective, having fun, improving physical fitness and working with the whole child. We want the quality of play to improve in order to meet the needs of all participants whatever their ability and skills. The YMCA accomplishes this by training adult volunteers in clinics and workshops that the child comes first and winning comes second. Competition will happen in youth sports without any external pressures. It is important to keep competition at a level appropriate for the athlete.
The goal of the Youth Sports program is to help the child grow to his/her fullest potential in mind, body, and spirit. Activity helps the body grow; thinking advances the mind; and belief makes our spirit grow.
Youth Sports always needs great volunteer coaches for the Youth Basketball and Indoor Youth Soccer programs. Please consider using your talents to encourage, guide and train young athletes at the Y!
