YMCA OF PUEBLO

Sports

 

Confidence, teamwork, and fitness...FOR EVERYBODY!

The YMCA of Pueblo is a charitable organization, so we make sure we include everyone in our sports activities, regardless of ability to pay. 

Sports are naturally fun for children and adults. We are as interested in developing character as we are in developing healthy athletes. 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 four core values of the YMCA : caring, honesty, respect and responsibility - winning strategies for in and out of the game! That's what makes the YMCA so much more. 

The Y - Everybody plays... everybody wins!

Volleyball

Got game? Hit the courts with the folks who invented the game - the Y!

Originally called mintonette, volleyball was created by the YMCA. An experimental game, mintonette combined a variation of the badminton net with elements of basketball, the German game of fistball and handball.

The first volleyball game was played at Springfield College in 1896. The philosophy of YMCA youth sports programs is to use sports as a tool to develop each participant physically, mentally and spiritually.

Emphasis is on teaching the values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting and skill development in a fun, esteem-promoting atmosphere. Children will have the opportunity to learn the basic volleyball fundamentals such as underhand serving, setting, hitting, and digging in a non-competitive environment.

Our youth volleyball program is a co-ed league. Teens and adults can enjoy the joys of volleyball at the Y!
