Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes with learning a new skill or building positive relationships that lead to good character and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out. Our sports programs are for all, they feature positive competition and their schedules are designed for family convenience.


Fall Sports Modified for Safety

The safety of our sports families is our number one priority. We are following guidance from the CDC, public health officials and the St. Louis Medicine COVID-19 task force to ensure that our children can participate in sports programs modified for their safety. A few of the changes planned for fall are smaller teams with reduced rosters, virtual coach’s meetings, games and practices scheduled not to overlap, equipment disinfected with EPA certified product between each use, modified rules, and parent attendance at games but not practices.
