At the YMCA Sports Performance Center, we believe that it is the foundation of athletics that creates the best competitor. With the help of our training experts and age-appropriate coaching, the YMCA Sports Performance Center is designed to meet kids (ages 11-18) where they are now and help them reach their full potential. Whatever the sport, the youth of today are developing earlier each year and it’s vital to their success that they have the basic athletic fundamentals of body awareness, coordination, balance, speed, strength, and agility to maximize their full athletic abilities and reduce injuries.
