Monett Area YMCA Sports

 

Welcome to YMCA sports! We are so excited that you have chosen the Monett Area YMCA for your child's youth sports experience. Teaching the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility to our youth participants is a partnership that we share with you. As we prepare for this season, please use this guide as a source of information to help you. Most importantly, if you have any questions beyond what you find here, please contact us.

COACH CONTACT

Your coach will contact you 2 or 3 days following the set coaches meeting. Please note your coach's information for your records. If you have not heard from your coach within the 2 or 3 days, please contact the YMCA at 417-235-8213 or jkee@orymca.org

 

AT GAME TIME

Please arrive with plenty of time for parking and locating the correct field/court. Each team will have time to warm up before each game. When game time arrives, the referee will call both teams together for a character lesson, pledge, and prayer. After the game, the teams will shake hands and then go to their coach for a talk and snack.

 

PARENT EXPECTATIONS

Our goal is to encourage healthy spirit, mind and body for all...especially for your child. Behavior that is unsportsmanlike, unruly or interferes with the progress of the game never helps any child. Please help us be strong role models for all children. This sport is designed for them to develop and grow.

 

WEATHER & MAKE-UP GAMES

Games can be cancelled due to inclement weather. Your coach will call or text if games are cancelled. The direct number to the YMCA is 235-8213.  If you don’t hear from anyone… expect games to be on!

 

Weather cancellations, on the YMCA's part, will include one guaranteed make-up game. Information about the make-up day will be delivered to team coaches.
