GENESEE COUNTY PRESCHOOL SPORTS
Learn, Grow, Thrive.
The YMCA is dedicated to youth development. Through our Preschool sports programming, we instill values such as sportsmanship, fair play, caring for others, and good character. To offer an opportunity to develop every individual child; physically, mentally & spiritually.
Preschool Sports concentrates on building skills and having fun. Practices are broken down into two parts (Activities and Game Situation) each being ½ the class. All practices start out with warm-ups and then we do activities around the skill for that week. Game situation will focus on the skill that was practiced that day.
