The purpose of YMCA Special Needs Sports is to provide a safe place for players with special needs that will allow them to experience sports they otherwise would not have been able to. We strive to help these young athletes improve their physical condition, teach them sport skills, help them develop feelings of self-worth, and teach them to play with a sportsmanlike attitude.

Two Sports Offered Per Year


Registration opens on January 12. Practices are March 4 through April 8.

During this 6 week program YMCA instructors will teach the participants the basics of Pickleball.

Pickleball is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. This sport is played either as singles or doubles.
