Our Mission

To put Christian Principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

The YMCA is a cause driven non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening our communities in spirit, mind and body. Much more than just a fitness center, we focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility as well. At the Y we know we aren't simply in the community, but a part of it, and when we strengthen others we strengthen ourselves. Welcome to the Y. You belong here.

My Y Story...

John

As a youth sports coach, John has coached soccer, baseball, flag football, and basketball. Since its inception in 1978, the Y’s Youth Sports Program has depended on volunteer coaches to operate. The Y’s Youth Sports programs introduces children to a non-competitive, everyone plays approach to sports and lays the foundation for a lifetime of physical activity. As a coach, John dedicates approximately 2 hours per week during a 7-week season. Overall, John has volunteered for at least 80 hours in the past year and over 200 hours since he first began coaching for the Y. John is more than a coach, he is also a mentor to his players. In John’s words, “seeing players gain a positive outlook about a sport and work together,” is one of the main reasons he returns season after season to coach. In addition to volunteering to coach at the Y, John is a volunteer den leader for a local Tiger Cub pack with Boy Scouts of America. As den leader, John volunteers for an additional 6 hours a month. John plans to continue to be involved at the Y: “I’m not done coaching yet. I’m an old guy, who’s young at heart and I plan to continue to be part of the Y system for a long time.” The Y appreciates parents like John, who get off the sidelines and make a difference in the lives of youth.
