MAKE MEMORIES WHILE
STAYING ACTIVE & FIT
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.
Participating in sports at the Doris Miller Family YMCA or Waco Family YMCA is about building the whole child, from the inside-out, in a safe, nurturing environment.
The benefits are far greater than just physical health: They’ll also build positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork.
YOUTH SPORTS OFFERINGS
Our youth soccer league is the only league in the area that offers a division for 3-year-olds, which gives your child a great advantage to learn soccer skills a year early. Our league teaches children how to kick the ball, pass it, shoot at the goal and, most importantly, how to play on a team.
It's never too early to introduce the next generation to America's pastime.
