YMCA Youth Sports Keep Kids Active and Healthy

At the YMCA of Metro Denver, our youth development philosophy is grounded in 150 years of lifting up kids and helping them reach their full potential. It's a philosophy centered on two critical factors: creating a unique sense of belonging and always incorporating the pure fun and joy of childhood.

We offer five seasons a year, each season offers a variety of sports for your player to experience. Our coaches are background checked and trained to provide a rewarding experience for your child.

Each member parent and guardian pledges to provide positive support, care, and encouragement for his or her child and for all other children participating in youth programs by following the following Parent’s Code of Conduct:

  • I will encourage good sportsmanship by creating a positive sports environment for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice, or other youth sport event.
  • I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my child ahead of my personal desire to win.
  • I will insist that my child play in a safe and healthy environment.
  • I will remember that the game is for the youth, not adults, and will do my best to make youth sports fun for my child.
  • I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans, and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or ability.
  • I will help my child enjoy the youth sports experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectful fan and assisting with coaching.
