We are a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT Swim, Sports, & Play It isn’t always about whether you win or lose, but what you learn in the process. In our sports programs, kids meet new friends, build athletic skills, develop life-long passions and achieve goals in a supportive environment with caring adults. Y sports programs focus on values, sportsmanship, and fun! Baseball / T-Ball League Hit a home run in this league-style program for kids age 4 to 10! All skill levels are welcome to improve their skills with team-building drills during the week and fast-paced games on Saturdays. Make new friends and work on individual abilities like catching, hitting and pitching under the guidance of passionate and energetic coaches.

Soccer League Learn communication and teamwork in a positive environment where every team member is important. Children ages 4-18 learn responsibility and dedication while improving soccer skills at all ability levels. Program is schedule-friendly with just one practice and one game per week.

Education & Leadership Youth and Government Attention future representatives, senators and student body presidents! High school students with an interest in state politics and bill creation should look no further than Youth and Government as a creative outlet. Students receive “hands-on” experience with lobbying, bill writing, judicial procedures and a press program ending with a fun-filled weekend conference in Raleigh where they will put these new skills into practical use.
