The Family YMCA has opened registration for three fall programs.
Registration forms for all programs are available at the Family YMCA website,
Registration for grades 2-4 is open through 9 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 23. Those who register after that date will be charged a $20 late fee.
Games will be played at the YMCA’s Miller Field on Mondays and Thursdays, with the first games to be played on or after Sept. 14.
The cost is $35 for YMCA members and $70 for non-members. Each player will receive a T-shirt to wear as their uniform and a mouthpiece to wear during games (mandatory).
A skills clinic will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. on Aug. 25 at Miller Field. All youth who plan to play are encouraged to attend this clinic.
The skills clinic will be used to teach flag football skills and fundamentals, and will be used as an assessment tool for players and coaches in identifying strengths and weaknesses to create even teams within the league.
A coaches meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Aug. 27. After that meeting, coaches will be contacting their players to let them know when practices will begin.
Anyone interested in coaching a flag football team is asked to contact program director Amber Daulbaugh, 283-1258, as soon as possible.
The deadline for registration is 9 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 23.
The age groups are, tentatively: age 4-first grade; grades 2-4; and grades 5-8.
The cost is $25 for YMCA members and $50 for non-members. Those who register after that date will be charged a $20 late fee.
Games will be played on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and some Saturdays. The first games will be played on or after Sept. 14.
Each player will receive a T-shirt to wear as a uniform. Shin guards are encouraged, but not provided.
Coaches meetings will be held on Aug. 25 for age 4-first grade, 6 p.m.; and grades 2-4, 7 p.m. A meeting for coaches for grades 5-8 will be held at 6 p.m. on Aug. 27.

Youth who plan to play soccer are encouraged to attend the clinics. Soccer fundamentals and skills will be taught and reviewed.
When school’s not in session, for such things as national holidays and teacher institute days, parents need child-care options. The YMCA is offering a program that will allow kids an opportunity to be with their friends outside of school.
The Y’s child care program combines academics with play and offers a caring and safe environment where youth can achieve, discover a sense of belonging and build relationships.
As a leading nonprofit committed to youth development, and a pioneer in afterschool programs, the Y believes in supporting the social-emotional, cognitive and physical processes that all youth experience – to provide the best chance for youth to succeed in school and life.
The YMCA believes the opportunity to get additional learning and support, and participate in meaningful activities can inspire the motivation and ability to succeed.
Drop-off: 8 a.m. and pickup at 3:30 p.m. on: Oct. 9, 12 and 30; Nov. 11 and 25; Dec. 21 and 28; Jan. 4, 18 and 29; Feb. 15; and March 25.
