Youth Soccer


Youth Soccer is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. YMCA youth soccer promises no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers! While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life.

Our leagues for students in kindergarten through second grade continue to encourage participation, teamwork and sportsmanship. Led by YMCA volunteer coaches trained through a practice plan and coaches training offered in conjunction with the Houston Dynamo/Dash, your YMCA athlete will develop both their athletic skills and character. 

This league includes a 60-minute practice each week and games on Saturdays. Registration includes a shirt and socks.  Parent participation is recommended.



YMCA Tiny Tots is designed to introduce kids to the game of soccer through fun games, interactive drills, and small sided game play. Children receive a shirt and socks with registration. Parent participation is required.

Together We Can Do More:

We're seeking volunteers interested in coaching youth sports. Our coaches make YMCA youth sports possible, and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide resources specific to the sport you coach. For more information, contact your nearest Y by phone or stop by the Welcome Center.
