Youth Flag Football

YMCA of Catawba Valley Youth Sports

Now is the time to start teaching your child the basic fundamentals of flag football. Our flag football program seeks to lay a foundation for parents to spend quality time together with their children while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports, watch them have fun, learn new skills and meet new friends. Sports provide a great opportunity to teach values like caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. YMCA Youth Sports help young people by emphasizing skill development - not competition.
