Youth Recreational Programs



Recreational Travel Soccer

We are attempting to put together some recreational traveling teams this summer! These teams will get to experience what it is like to play traveling soccer at a lower cost. There will not be a league schedule, instead we will schedule our own games and play in 1 tournament. Players must be signed up by April 19th, 2021 to avoid late registration fee. Late registration will end May 3rd, 2021.

Possible teams as of 2/26/2021. Based on registrations and interest.

Spring Volleyball

The Worthington YMCA is proud to offer an opportunity for participants to participate in and experience a traveling volleyball program. This is in substitution for the traditional JO Volleyball Program.

Due to the current pandemic climate, we will be running a condensed program this year and strictly playing local community clubs in small group formats (pods). We are planning on a 6-week program, with practice twice a week per team and four weekends of match play.


Registration is limited for each age group. Filled on a first come first serve basis, with a waiting list option if we can facilitate more teams. Register athletes for the age they are now.
