Register for flag football and soccer at the Aldine-Greenspoint YMCA

You might find a variety of soccer or football programs or leagues throughout the community but few compare to YMCA youth sports. The focus of YMCA youth soccer and flag football is in developing the whole person, not just the competitive athlete.

In YMCA youth soccer and flag football, every player plays at least half of every game whether the most skilled or the new kid on the team.
Every kid is given equal attention and playing rime. Coaches help team members set and achieve individual goals while working on the fundamentals of the sport like dribbling, passing and proper ball control. This teaches team members to compete against themselves instead of each other.

This non-competitive environment allows children to learn about the games of soccer and flag football in an atmosphere of mutual respect where everyone is a winner.

“YMCA youth sports teaches children the fundamentals of the game and allows participants to take part in a healthy activity that helps build responsibility, leadership and self esteem,” said Jorge Tavares, youth sports coordinator for the Aldine-Greenspoint YMCA. “Our sports program also gives kids the opportunity to have fun and learn the game with their fami1ies. Parents are encouraged to be more than spectators. They can contribute as coaches, game officials or even as team parents.”

For many years the Aldine-Greenspoint Y has offered youth soccer and flag football. This year the Aldine-Greenspoint YMCA promises to deliver another successful season.
