sports at the ymca

YMCA Youth & Adult Sports programs promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition, the value of participation over winning and team building. We look forward to helping you and your child reach your God-given potential in spirit, mind and body that promotes the fun aspect in participating in sports. 


The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they will carry with them throughout their lives. And the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it is gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.


When kids play sports, they develop skills beyond the field. Through healthy competition kids can discover their personal best, have fun and be a part of a team. Modeling fairness, cooperation and hard work, our volunteer coaches recognize achievements large and small and understand that winning is not just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team.

youth ballet

The Kings Mountain Family YMCA has partnered up with Instructor, Kimberla Burrows of Kimberla's School of Classical Ballet to provide the highest quality of Ballet Classes. Combining movement with creative inspiration, dancers develop a personal enjoyment for art and culture while building confidence in expressing themselves.
From fundamentals to principles, our dance programs allow participants to learn the art of dance at any age or ability level. We design classes to enhance fine and gross motor skills while cultivating imagination, creativity and social development in a caring environment. Dance also helps improve posture and body control, offering a fun approach to fitness.

This program does not currently register online. You must come into the Kings Mountain Family YMCA branch to register.
