GENESEE COUNTY SPORTS
Everybody Plays, Everybody Wins.
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim 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.
This is for ages 5-21 with varying special needs and abilities. Individual Sport Information.
Gymnastics classes are offered all year round in sessions consisting of six or seven weeks. Gymnastic Class Descriptions.
Indoor soccer 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. Skills focus includes: Dribbling, Pass and Receiving, Shielding, Goalie, Defender 1 and 2, Trapping and Shooting.
