Clinton YMCA Excited for Changes to Flag Football Program

The Clinton YMCA is not only shifting the flag football season to a new time of the year, but it will also have a new location to play its games.


On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, Clinton Y Executive Director Rennie Cluver told Regional Radio the program moving to the spring offers the Y the chance to bring in the high school football program to mentor and teach the kids.



A couple of additional changes including games being played on Sundays to hopefully allow more kids the chance to play and not having conflicting activities. They are also excited to announce they will be playing games at 'Prairie Passage Greenspace' - the green space to the north of the Warner Library at the old junior high school.



Sports programming has taken a big step forward so far this year and Cluver believes having someone stable in the youth and adult programming position is a big part of that. He credits Melinda Akers for pursuing the vision of the Y and taking up the mantle left by David Torbert.
