Kick it Up
YMCA Youth Soccer is designed for players of all abilities and skill levels! From those with little soccer experience to our Travel Team, each player is given the same opportunity to grow, learn, and develop leadership skills through the game of soccer. Players will learn the fundamentals of the sport and engage in competition with other Monroe Coutny YMCA teams in a fun and supportive environment that emphasizes character development, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.
