Long Branch Area YMCA



The Longbranch Area YMCA is THE place for children and sports! At the Y, our sports programs keep kids active, teach friendly competition and introduce healthy practices for life

YMCA Youth Sports are unique because each child must play a specified amount of time during each game. No standings are kept. Each child receives a participation award at the end of each program. YMCA youth sports are based on participation, skill development, teamwork, family involvement, volunteer leadership and most of all, having fun.

All participants recite this sports pledge at the beginning of each game:

We pledge to play the game to the best of our ability, to be team players, to respect the rules, opponents and officials, and to improve ourselves in spirit, mind and body.

Contact Jessy Stephenson, at Fitness & Programs for more information.
