Youth Sports

ballsEveryone plays. Everyone wins. Youth Sports strive to enhance every child’s personal growth and development, sports skills, and fundamentals. Fair play and sportsmanship, values and a sense of teamwork and physical fitness are incorporated into all we do. And, on top of that, kids have fun!

Our programs fill kids’ discretionary hours with positive activities and caring, adult attention. Coaches – often volunteers, including many parents – emphasize teamwork and cooperation over winning at any cost. Developing good values is far more important than developing the next superstar.

For questions regarding youth sports please contact Nick Still at (217) 773-2230 or ymcastill@casscomm.com.
