Youth Sports

The YMCA of Central New Mexico’s Youth Sports program is open to children and teens, from age 3 to 17. Our Youth Sports are the starting point for many kids and teens to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.

Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to play basketball or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
