Youth programs at the Y give children the opportunity to explore their unique talents and interests and help them realize their potential. This makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
Evaluation & Team Placement
All players must attend evaluations prior to the season starting.
The Summer 2013 season we will have 9-11 and 12-14 age groups as well as a competitive travels team in the 5th-6th, 7-th-8th and 9th-10th graders.
The criteria is as follows for beginner/intermediate athletes we recommend the instructional developmental league. *All players that want to play in the competitive travel league must try out* Based on the evaluations of the staff and the director we will decide what division your child needs to be placed.
*Competitive travel league and girls 9-11 & 12-14 age groups will play at other YMCA branches in the Tampa Metro Association*
Try Out and Evaluations:
Evaluations are mandatory if a player for whatever reason can't make evaluations, that players needs to set up a time to be evaluated. If that player still isn't evaluated they will be placed on a team at the directors discretion.
