Youth Sports

Get in the Game with Youth Sports!

Through youth sports at the Y, kids can be active, build confidence, learn new skills and make friends. Our youth sports focus on building healthy habits for life and teaching children to support each other, both on and off the field. Centered on the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, you can be confident that your child’s team will embrace positive competition and fair play. Our teams value effort given more than games won, fostering positive self-image and respect for others.

Competitive Youth Sports Clubs and Teams

Club sports at Osage Prairie YMCA give young athletes the opportunity to compete regionally and develop their skills under the direction of our highly qualified coaching staff. We offer year-round competitive swim options with our Neptunes and Tridents swim teams OPY Club Swim, and we also offer competitive volleyball through OPY Club Volleyball.

Learn Healthy Habits

Youth Sports at the Y teach a love of the game and moving your body, helping your kids build a strong foundation to stay healthy for life.

Build Character

It’s not whether you win or lose – it’s how you play the game! Youth sports at the Y teach good sportsmanship and resilience – skills that will benefit your child both on and off the field.

Support Development

Moving your body in youth sports helps strengthen children’s muscles and bones. It also helps children build their concentration and attention span, benefitting them in the classroom, too!

Volunteer Coaching Opportunities

Join in the fun! As a volunteer coach, you can make a lasting impact on the lives of our community’s kids. You’ll help our young athletes develop their skills, build confidence, and learn important life lessons about teamwork, sportsmanship, and perseverance.

Our coaches empower kids to the best they can be, and they also get a front row seat to the magic that happens every youth sports season. For more information, about upcoming volunteer coaching opportunities, contact or call 417-667-9622.
