Staying Active

Redefining Competition

Sports at the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA are about building the whole child, from the inside out. We guide each child and teen to deepen relationships, improve self-esteem and build skills and character. Y staff and volunteer coaches focus on teaching the fundamentals and ensuring that everyone gets a chance to play and be part of a team.
