Sports

Sports are naturally fun for children and adults. At the Y we are as interested in developing character as we are in developing healthy athletes. The Pueblo Y has youth leagues for basketball, flag football, soccer, and volleyball. We do not conduct tryouts and our coaches stress good sportsmanship and skills development over winning. During the season team members receive equal practice time and will play at least one half of every game. In addition to learning the fundamentals of sports and inclusion in games, your kids will also learn the Y’s four core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility - winning strategies for in and out of the game!

The Y - Everybody plays... everybody wins!

Training and Certifications

The YMCA of Pueblo offers training and certifications for health and safety such as CPR, Swim Instructor and lifeguarding. Courses are taught by accredited professionals. 

More info:

Swim Instructor Training

This course provides participants with the basic knowledge and skills to teach YMCA swim lessons to parent-child pairs, preschoolers, youth and adults. It includes both land and pool sessions, lesson planning, teaching methodology, class organization, class components and skills for the YMCA progressive program. The course also covers the Y's expectations for instructors and outlines their responsibilities for teaching YMCA Aquatics classes that are student centered, values oriented and safe and effective in teaching aquatic skills.

Included in the course is the YMCA Instructor Safety Assistant Module. YMCA Instructor Safety Assistant (YISA), which will be taught by YSL trainers and will replace the YASA prerequisite. The YISA course focuses on how an instructor can assist and help a lifeguard in the event of an emergency in the pool area. It will teach lifeguards who are also swim instructors what role to play during an emergency while they are teaching rather than guarding. YISA is the fifth module within the YSL instructor course and helps reinforce aquatic safety, streamline the training system and decrease the required training hours.

Training Dates:

April 23/24 5:00pm-9:00pm @ the Y, April 25th 8:00am-6:00pm @ the Y

April 26th 9:00am-6:00pm @ CSU-Pueblo student recreation facility.
