Sports Development Philosophy of the La Jolla YMCA

It is our belief that each child is a unique individual with his or her own rate of development. It is our goal:

  • To strengthen the family unit and help each child develop a set of life-long moral values through learning and playing sports
  • For the children to relate to each other in a way that is comfortable to them, as well as to respect and appreciate differences in others
  • To see children develop a positive self-image through a variety of sports experiences in a fun, supportive, and safe environment
  • To allow children to learn through athletics, both individually and in groups
  • To provide a safe environment with structured and choice activities appropriate for an after school program geared towards athletics and fitness
