In YMCA Youth Sports programs, "winners" are defined as players who feel good about themselves, set personal goals and achieve them, help others succeed, give their best effort, learn new skills, and have fun.
"The YMCA Youth Sports program doesn't remove the competition from the sport--it just puts it in proper perspective. Competing is important, but so is having a good time, participating, learning new skills, and learning to respect officials, coaches, and the other teams," says program coordinator Chris Bellecourt.
Parents are encouraged to participate as coaches, officials, and committee members. For information, call Chris Bellecourt, Sports/Recreation Coordinator, at 425-485-9797, or drop by the Northshore YMCA.
