Basketball

Our basketball program combines team play and individual skills in a fun and supportive environment through our YMCA basketball leagues, clinics, or classes. Kids can develop their basketball skills including passing, receiving, shooting, footwork and dribbling. Not only will they have an opportunity to improve their technique, but they’ll also build social skills, gain confidence and develop leadership skills.

Flag Football

With a focus on improving basic football skills, team work and sportsmanship, this recreational flag football league is perfect for pre-teen athletes. Volunteer coaches lead football drills emphasizing passing, receiving and blocking skills, while advancing offensive and defensive strategies.

Martial Arts

We offer a variety of martial arts classes for youth and adults including Karate, Tae Kwon Do and Tai Chi. Participants will develop discipline, confidence, respect, focus, and self-defense skills in a fun and safe environment. Training is offered in a variety of levels, ranging from beginners to those who are ready for Black Belt testing.

Pickleball is an exciting, fast-paced game for all ages. Whether you are looking to play as a single, double, or on a team, there are many ways you can get in on the pickleball fun at a Y location today!

Soccer

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. The YMCA of Delaware is one of the best places to learn and play this worldwide game and have a lot of fun while doing it! YMCA soccer emphasizes fun, teamwork, sportsmanship and inclusion for all, while encouraging kids to be active – a benefit to them both physically and mentally, as active kids are not only healthier but do better in school.

Swim Team

With swim teams throughout the state, the YMCA of Delaware’s competitive program offers children and teens an opportunity to work with trained coaches to improve swimming skills, endurance, and promote a healthy lifestyle. Participants build character values through personal improvement, training, goal-setting, teamwork, and competition. Teams compete locally, regionally and nationally. Swimmers progress as participants, role models, and leaders.

Tumbling, Movement and Gymnastics

Get ready to move! We offer tumbling, movement (for toddlers), and gymnastics classes for youth. Depending on the age and ability of the child, participants will stretch, enhance their flexibility, learn and master certain moves.

Volleyball

BUMP, SET, SPIKE!  Youth learn new skills, make new friends, develop essential character traits, and set individual and team goals. This improves self-confidence, promotes diversity, increases self-esteem, and improves physical condition. Youth Sports puts emphasis on healthy relationships between adults and youth as well as family, with a goal to build social skills and sport skills with all participants for the future.
