How can I access the sports registration paperwork?

While we welcome you to enroll in sports at the front desk of any branch location - you can also enroll in sports online.

My child has never played an organized sport before - is the YMCA an appropriate place to start?

We believe we are the BEST place to start. Our organized sports are organized by age and, in some cases, gender. Our more popular sports (by way of enrollment and participation numbers) are also often organized by skill level, too. When your child enrolls in sports at the YMCA they are assured a spot on the team, they will receive coaching and support, and they will play in each game - presuming they are honoring their commitments to the team and their own development

What is the difference between a YMCA Branch and a YMCA Farha Sports Center?

While very much a part of the Greater Wichita YMCA, our YMCA Farha Sports Centers (located adjacent to the Richard A. DeVore South YMCA Branch and near the Andover YMCA Branch) are exclusively used for organized sports. They don't have general fitness centers for every day member use, studios, racket sport courts, or pools. They do offer 65,000 square feet of turf on six fields, 180,000+ square feet of hardwood floor courts, and weight rooms and fitness facilities for teams that use the facilities. There are also concession stands and spectator seating.

Do you offer competitive/club/league/traveling sports?

Yes. We welcome beginners and those just learning a sport but we also want to continue to challenge athletes as their skills develop.
