After a six-month hiatus, youth sports through the Clinton YMCA are returning.
Yout Sports Programming Director David Torbert tells Regional Radio News they are excited to welcome back flag football and youth soccer. The competitive piece is not going to be able to offer but he says they are going to focus on skill development.
According to Torbert, youth development is one of the biggest focuses for the Y, and getting these programs back helps develop not only the skills for these sports but a passion in a way that allows the kids to grow.
The Y will be partnering with the Clinton JFL program to get more kids involved since they cannot play this fall either. Torbert emphasizes it is a program available for all students.
On top of partnering with the Clinton JFL, the Y is also partnering with the Clinton High School football program to come up with drills to run. Additionally, Torbert indicates they are going to have high school players out to work with the youth that participates.
Friday is the final day to get registered for this fall's youth sports camps. Torbert indicates they have streamlined the process to their website, clintoncommymca.org. Flag football camps get started this Saturday.
