Our Youth Sports Program Guidelines Include:

  • Strict sanitization and cleaning protocol have been implemented; including a minimum of 15 minutes between each clinic to allow for proper sanitization.
  • Each participant is asked to utilize hand sanitizer upon entry.
  • The Y requests that each participant brings their own ball for their safety. If necessary, the Y will supply a sanitized ball for the participant.
  • Handwashing is prioritized; youth and staff will wash their hands after every activity.
  • Any changes due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic will be communicated quickly. Should the season be postponed or cancelled due to health official guidelines, full or partial refunds will be issued based on the amount of games played.
