Youth Sports

Everyone plays. Everyone wins. Youth Sports strive to enhance every child’s personal growth and development, sports skills, and fundamentals. Fair play and sportsmanship, values and a sense of teamwork and physical fitness are incorporated into all we do. And, on top of that, kids have fun!

Our programs fill kids’ discretionary hours with positive activities and caring, adult attention. Coaches – often volunteers, including many parents – emphasize teamwork and cooperation over winning at any cost. Developing good values is far more important than developing the next superstar.


Youth Flag Football

The Western YMCA is happy to partner with Hannibal YMCA to offer flag football in the fall! Flag Football is one of America’s most exciting sports and this program will introduce your children to the fundamentals of the game.The league will focus on skill development, good sportsmanship, character development, team work and most importantly – FUN! We lead drills and games that teach the skills and positions of football as well as important values that are used on and off the field, all in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment. Kids will get a feel for football as they work on fundamentals of throwing, catching and playing as a team in this no-tackle sport. Registration ends August 16, 2019. For details and more information please see the Flag Football flyer.
