Youth Sports Philosophy

All Bath Area Family YMCA Youth Sports Programs are designed to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.  We build strong kids and strong families by showing respect, caring , honesty, and responsibility for teammates, opponents, coaches, officials, and fans.  The purpose of youth sports is to provide a wholesome environment where youngsters are given the opportunity to build self esteem, develop assets that assist in teaching communication, learn the importance of staying fit, enhance their leadership skills, and have FUN.  It is the goal of the Y to provide youth sports programs that furnish participants with sport specific skills and values that are useful on the court, playing field, gym, or in relationships with family and friends.

Objectives - The purpose of any program at the Y is to help participants grow spiritually, mentally, and physically.  There are seven objectives that characterize all Y programs:

Grow personally: A positive competitive gymnastics team experience can build a child’s self-esteem and self-confidence.

Learn values: Honesty, respect, caring, and responsibility.

Appreciate diversity: Learn to respect people regardless of age, abilities, incomes, race, religion, culture, or beliefs.

Improve personal relations: Learn to care and communicate with teammates.

Become better leaders: Learn the give and take necessary to work toward the common good.

Develop specific skills: Train skills and progressions necessary to help them succeed in the sport.
