Itty Bitty Sports

Instructional Programs for Kids Ages 3-5



Itty Bitty Soccer League

This introductory co-ed youth soccer league is designed to emphasize and develop soccer skills including kicking, dribbling, passing and team play.  Weeks 1-2 of the program focus on skill building while helping the youth understand the game. Youth will then transition into playing soccer games against other "Itty Bitty" teams, to encourage team play and character development. Parents will not need to provide soccer balls as the YMCA will provide the soccer balls and a "Itty Bitty" t-shirt. Team practices and play will run for an hour sometime during 9 am -12 pm. Schedule will be sent out prior to start of the league. The program takes place at the Downtown YMCA in the gym.

Did You Know?

In December 1891, at the YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts, James Naismith invented the sport of basketball. Naismith hung peach baskets to the bottom of a second-level running track and taught YMCA members this new game. Today, basketball is second only to soccer as the most popular sport in the world.
