Registration is now open for youth of all ages to participate in the Ventura Family YMCA’s Spring II Session. This spring the Ventura Family YMCA has many different classes and sports offerings for their local youth including, swimming, ballet, baseball, football, tennis, basketball, and many other sports.
This is a great way to give children an introduction to a new sport or help them improve their skills in a sport that they already play.
Participation in YMCA sports provides a fun learning experience for all players regardless of their ability. Kids learn the basics of the sport, develop skills and sportsmanship, get playing time and enjoy an encouraging environment.
The Y’s Youth Programs Director recalls his past experiences as a child athlete helping shape who he is today. Vinny Savelich stated “When I think back on my time playing sports as a kid, I see how my teammates and coaches shaped me and helped establish my self-confidence and identity. These experiences really gave me the right direction to succeed in life, which is something that makes me feel really good because I can give back this type of help to our Y kids.”
The Y emphasizes the success and improvement of each team member rather than winning. The leagues offer competition to challenge every child’s ability and focus on fair play and teamwork.
Registrations close before the beginning of the Y’s Spring II Session, which runs from April 11, 2016-June 4, 2016.
