YMCA youth sports encourage healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, positive self– image and a sense of fair play. Through our caring staff and coaches, we help your child develop the skills fundamental not only to play the sport, but also to be successful in the community such as cooperation, commitment, dedication and sportsmanship.

Volunteer coaches, often parents of players, help run each team. Coaches conduct practices and notify parents when players need to arrive for practices and games.

Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques. We want to help cultivate our youth into becoming outstanding people just as much as helping them become outstanding players.

Be the difference in your children’s development and register them for a YMCA NFL Play 60 Flag Football League at your neighborhood Charleston Family YMCA.
