Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I register?

A: Visit the Youth Sports home page to view available programs and register.

Q: Do you provide scholarships?

A: Yes, thanks to generous contributions to the YMCA’s Annual Giving campaign, scholarships are available to participants who qualify. Applications are available at your YMCA facility or by calling us at 615-256-4753.

Q: How does the refund policy work?

A: Cancellations received before the first practice are eligible for a full refund. Once practice has begun, but before the first game has been played, we will offer a full credit for YMCA programs. After the first game has been played we are unable to give any refunds or system credits.

Q: Who can play?

A: YMCA sports leagues are open to boys and girls of all skill levels. Participants do not need a YMCA membership to participate. Ages vary based on location due to field and/or gym access.

Q: How are individual players placed on teams?

A: Participants are placed on teams based on their age and requests. The information you provide on the registration questionnaire plays a large role in how teams are drafted.

Q: What if I have a specific request?

A: We try to accommodate requests, but we cannot guarantee requests will be honored. Refunds are not provided due to an unfulfilled request. For teammate or coach requests, you must indicate whom you are requesting on the registration questionnaire.

Q: Do you accept team reservations?

A: Yes, but all participants must register prior to the season registration deadline and must indicate the teammate/coach you are requesting on the registration questionnaire.

Teams must also have a coach secured prior to registering as a team. Since our league is based on individual registrations, a team may have additional players added to their team if the team does not meet the maximum number of players allotted per team.
