The Clark County Y is for Youth Development, because we believe that all kids deserve opportunities to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Y programs cultivate the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Our youth fitness focus promotes healthy living and teaches the importance of proper technique and safety while our enrichment classes provide educational and personal growth experiences. + Our Y Time program is more than just care for children; it’s an opportunity to learn, create, play, empower and grow. Our highly trained and caring staff have a shared commitment to excellence in service and child development. + Our after school enrichment programs (grades K – 5) are designed to extend the learning day. Through local school partnerships we provide opportunities for children to enrich their physical and emotional needs while enhancing their academic needs. As a result, we create a safe and fun atmosphere that fosters new friendships, improves social skills and provides a chance to learn and grow every day. + YMCA youth sports leagues are designed to promote sportsmanship, teamwork and skill development. Players will receive instructions from skilled coaches with weekly practices and games on Saturdays. Leagues are divided by grade level and allow players of all skill levels to learn, grow and have fun!
