Youth Sports & Enrichment Programming

At the Greater Wyoming Valley Area YMCA every child is valued and recognized for their potential to be happy, healthy, and productive community members. The Y offers programs for teens to build self-esteem and self-confidence, learn healthy lifestyle choices, grow and create new hobbies as well as achieve their personal and educational goal. There is opportunity to create new friendships and lasting relationships in a safe, supportive and engaging environment. We offer programing at both branches – Wilkes-Barre and Pittston! 
 
Here at the GWVA YMCA, we know there is much more to a game than the final score. We focus on keeping kids active while they learn and have fun as a team. A child’s involvement in youth sport gives them the chance to develop team working skills, gain a sense of achievement, and build friendships. Our youth sports programs help children gain skills and confidence that will last a lifetime, encourage a healthy lifestyle, and most importantly, are fun!
