Youth Baseball Teams
The YMCA of Greater Omaha’s youth baseball and softball teams act as a great avenue for kids to learn about cooperation and teamwork at all ages. Sports at the Y help kids engage in low-stress, non-competitive exercise while learning the rules of the game. It also teaches older children how to cooperate with other children and understand the importance of working as a team. The YMCA of Greater Omaha has several programs to let kids of all ages play baseball or softball with their friends.
