SPORT AT THE Y

Our Sport programmes are a great community service offered by the YMCA for young people across the region. Our leagues have proved very popular with over 10,000 total participants each year and offer numerous benefits including keeping fit, improving coordination, developing skills, building teamwork and developing a healthy competitive spirit all in a fun environment. We work closely through partnerships with local sporting organisations like Capital Basketball and Capital City Volleyball to deliver a quality programmes and offer pathways for further development

At YMCA we offer a variety of sports that your child’s school can be involved in including basketball, indoor soccer, flag football and lots more.  Junior Leagues are based at Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua and both the YMCA’s in Upper Hutt and Masterton which means we can offer various leagues throughout the year.

These leagues offer the perfect opportunity to challenge your kids and students and keep up their fitness in a fun and social environment.

We would like to see as many schools participating as possible, however, a degree of first come first served will need to apply as numbers are limited.

JUNIOR SPORT FEES WAIVED FOR THE REST OF 2020!

COVID-19 has been a barrier to kids leading active, healthy lives. We won’t let money be another one. Which is why YMCA kids sports leagues are free for the rest of 2020. The Y movement in NZ is working collectively to encourage society to ‘Let kids be kids again’. COVID has impacted us all and there is now more reason than ever for our kids to be outside recreating, connecting, playing or more specifically taking part in YMCA services. Please see below for the current sports we are offering.

PORIRUA

In Porirua the Y offers a variety of sports that your child’s school can be involved in. In partnership with Capital City Volley we are introducing KiwiVolley a great sport that children of all abilities can play. The games will be played 4 vs 4 players at Te Rauparaha Arena. We’ll start all grades with an elimination style of Volleyball, where teams catch and throw the ball over the net if the ball hits the ground a player is eliminated from the court. Play continues until one team has eliminated all the opponents from the opposition then they are awarded a point. We want tamariki to be successful and enjoy the sport they play, we will provide support and coaching from the umpire.

Our popular Summer Miniball and Basketball league returns in Term 4. Miniball is played for years 1-2 and years 3-4 the games are played with only 4 players per team allowed on a smaller sized Basketball court. Players must wear a colored band, which will show their opponent to defend. Basic Basketball rules apply. Basketball is played for years 5-6 and years 7-8 on a full sized court with the removal of a few rules such as no time outs, no free throws and no shot clock.
