Youth Sports

The mission of the Healthy Living Center at North River Youth Sports Leagues is to provide an opportunity for every player to participate, have a fun and educational experience, and also build healthy relationships with coaches and fellow players.  These ingredients are the foundations of our program and it is our choice to adopt a philosophy that does not include "winning at all costs."
 

School Team Policy: If you are planning on entering the youth league with a school please follow this procedure: 

  1. Each individual will need to fill out the registration form and name the school at the top of the form.
  2. Give your registration forms and check to the Coach/Athletic Director for your school. (Forms will not be accepted any other way)
  3. The Coach/Athletic Director will bring the registration forms to the North River YMCA and register the team all at once in order to assure that the designated people are on the proper team. 
  4. Payments must accompany registration forms at time of registration to be valid.
