At the Y, sports and recreational activities are something special. Friendly competition, lots of variety and a supportive environment mean team sports and recreation is fun again, and it makes for a healthier lifestyle and a good story or two. Improve skills, make new friends, be active and learn to love a sport at the Y. 


Sports are not just for kids! Whether you miss “suiting up” or are new to team sports, the Y’s sports leagues provide a perfect opportunity to be active, social and to reconnect or start fresh with a sport you love.


Gymnastics is beneficial for each child’s physical and mental development. At the Y, we will help your child develop coordination, flexibility, strength and positive self-esteem while learning fun, new skills. We provide a positive environment for a confidence-building experience!


Staying active, developing healthy habits, learning leadership responsibilities and developing lifelong friendships—these are all areas the Y helps youth and teens excel in. Teens are a great resource in our community. They have talents and energy. They care about others. The Y has always encouraged teens to provide leadership with younger kids.


Our youth sports classes help kids develop a love for sports by focusing on skill development and teaching the fundamentals of the game. In the Y's sports classes, we focus on skill development and strengthening those skills throughout the duration of the program.


At the Y, our sports staff, coaches and volunteers all share a singular vision of helping athletes reach their full potential in life. Our sports leagues turn a child's excitement and passion for sports into a healthy, positive outlet for them to gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models. Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators by contributing their time as a volunteer coach, a team parent and most importantly being their kid’s number one fan.


The YMCA of the Fox Cities is proud to offer high-quality martial arts programming.
