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.

FEES – THE Y TIERED PRICING SYSTEM
Porirua Junior Sports Leagues has a new tiered pricing system for schools wanting to participate in our sports leagues. This will allow schools to choose the price that works best for them. Traditionally, we have only offered a subsidised rate to ensure access for as many young people and whanau as possible. This rate does not ultimately cover all the Y’s costs and thus we have supported this with community funding and support of the Y’s other programmes. Through a new partnership with Nuku Ora and Sport NZ’s Tu Manawa Active Aotearoa Fund we will continue to offer this heavily subsidised rate and now include other options for your consideration that meet the need of your community so no tamariki miss out due to cost.
The Y in Masterton is fast becoming the home of basketball in the Wairarapa with both kids social and whanau leagues, training programmes and other basketball services. In 2020 we are offering futsal, volleyball and a number of other initiatives to get active at the Y
