Due to COVID restrictions, winter programming at the YMCA will look different this year but they will still be able to offer sports camps to area youth.
Youth Program Director David Torbert tells Regional Radio News the winter programming will be similar to the fall programming in that they will not be able to offer competitions, so their focus will be on skill development.
Similar to the fall sports, Torbert is excited to again have the collaboration of the high school athletic department. He says both the high school boys and girls basketball coaches have wanted to get involved and be a part of these programs.
Health screenings and masks will be a part of this year's clinics. Torbert says they want to create an environment of safety for everyone that comes out.

He adds boys clinics will be Mondays and Tuesday while girls will do camps on Thursdays and Fridays. They will also be broken down by age group with 3rd through 5th graders going from 6 pm to 7 pm and 6th through 8th graders going from 7 pm to 8 pm.
