SPORTS

The Greater Wichita YMCA believes that organized sports have value far beyond the score at the end of the game. Sport - and being part of a team - benefits spirit, mind, and body through:

  • LEARNING Basics of the game including rules and how to play (swing a bat, make a pass, etc.)
  • IMPROVING Deepen skills through experience including playing, coaching, and game outcomes
  • BENEFITING Takeaways include leadership, patience, strategic thinking, and problem solving
  • EXPERIENCING Diverse people, experiences, and approaches toward a common goal - better play.

We offer a variety of sports - indoor and outdoor, on land and in water, for beginners and the experienced - at most of our area branch locations in Andover, El Dorado, Newton, and Wichita and at our YMCA Farha Sports Centers in Andover and Wichita.

 SPORTS - THE RIGHT WAY

The Greater Wichita YMCA, like all Ys, is committed to Youth Development and Social Responsibility. That means that our sports programs are built around four core values:

  • CHARACTER Sports, at its heart, is about commitment - at practice, before and after the game, and while playing. 
  • HONESTY Cheaters never win and winners never cheat is not cliche at the Y. Everyone is held to an equal, fair standard.
  • RESPECT Losing and winning isn't as important as the experience. We treat all participants, officials, and supporters with dignity.
  • REPSONSIBILITY Rules are observed and enforced as are our policies for athlete, official, and spectator conduct - at all times.

All of our sports - youth and adult - require strict adherence to these values and commitments by our officials, coaches, players, and spectators. When you choose the YMCA to help introduce, develop, and expand your child to a love of sports, you can feel confident that we PLAY the right way. OFFICIATE the right way. CHEER the right way.
