For Youth Development

Our Youth sports programs run throughout the year. Please check our current program guide for additional details about offerings.

Hello Sports Participants and families,
With the Governor of PA closing schools across the state, We at the Pocono Family YMCA Sports will follow suit and postpone our sports programs; Basketball, Soccer, Flag Football, Karate, and Tennis until schools reopen. you will be notified of the start-up and of course, we will be crediting all sports accounts to continue with each sport/lesson plans, etc.. when we return to action.  If you would like a refund, please email

Thank you for partnering with us to provide the healthiest environment possible for our children to thrive. We appreciate you choosing the Y, and are here to support you and answer questions as needed. The Pocono Family YMCA is deeply committed to the health and wellness of all. We will continue to monitor the situation, communicate openly, and support you and your family by providing safe and nurturing places for everyone we serve. We are stronger together, and together we will get through this.

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience at this time.

At the Pocono YMCA, our sports staff, coaches, and volunteers all share a singular vision of helping all children and teens reach their full potential.

We leverage the excitement and passion for recreational and competitive programming to create a healthy outlet for children to gain new skills, build character, develop a sense of team, and connect with positive role models.

Please check back for future session dates.
