youth sports classes

The Ann Arbor YMCA offers a range of youth sports classes designed to teach basic skills and emphasize the concepts of teamwork, cooperation 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 stress participation and fun so that all participants can enjoy a positive experience in our classes.
