We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
The YMCA of Austin encourages sportsmanship, self-improvement and team building through its youth sports and activities. Children can participate in traditional team sports like soccer and basketball, or try activities like swim team or gymnastics. Toddlers can also get an early start on hand-eye coordination through our toddler and preschool programs.
