Youth Sports at the Y

The Cedar Rapids Metro Y is the leader in offering sports and programs for kids of all ages and abilities on a year-round basis. For over 140 years, our YMCA has been helping kids grow into confident and successful adults.

At the YMCA, everybody plays and everybody is a winner!  With the emphasis on participation, each child plays, regardless of size or ability. As a result, youth learn good sportsmanship, teamwork, build self-esteem, and have a great time! The YMCA offers a variety of Youth Sports, from Mighty Mites (for youths ages 4 - 5), to cheerleading, volleyball and soccer, track, basketball and flag football.

YMCA Youth Sports is also a GREAT way to get involved with kids in your community.  We are always looking for good people to help make a difference in kid's lives.

Youth Basketball 

The Y knows all about basketball...considering we invented the game!  (Yep, it's true...look it up).  The Y offers Youth Basketball for boys and girls of varied ages coming up in December.


Youth Cheerleading

Combining gymnastics, tumbling, cardio and dance, cheerleading has evolved from a sideline activity into a full-fledged sport!  The Y has cheer programs for varied levels of experience to teach everything from basics on up!
