We believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in sports, and YMCA programs provide a safe environment for youth to develop their potential, regardless of ability or background.
In YMCA youth sports, every child will learn the four core values of the Y: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Youth Sports Pledge "Win or lose, I pledge to do the best I can.
To respect my teammates, my coaches, my opponents, and officials,
and improve myself in spirit, mind and body."
The South Suburban Y’s Youth Sports Leagues for football and basketball are administered through the Walnut Creek YMCA. Please work with the Walnut Creek Y to sign up for those youth sports leagues. If you’re interested in other South Suburban Y youth sports, please contact the South Suburban Y at 515-285-0444. We have many exciting new programs being developed.
