Let’s play together!

Community programs offer an opportunity for parents, siblings, friends and young athletes to come together in a guided play experience led by a Young Athletes coach and volunteers.


  • Give families the opportunity to share in the success of their future athlete
  • Provide experiences that will lead to an appreciation of fitness and sport for the whole family
  • Offer an inclusive program that promotes social development
  • Enable families to learn about the potential of their child through sport

Register for a Community Program

Once a child is registered as a young athlete, he/she may enroll in a community program where participants will have access to…

  • Weekly sessions
  • Trained Young Athletes coaches
  • Unified Young Athlete partners
  • Fun! Fun! Fun!

Community programs change every season, so enrollment must be completed at the beginning of each season.
