Youth Soccer

The YMCA of the Triangle offers youth soccer teams and leagues for kids in Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Chapel Hill, Clayton and Durham.

YMCA sports teams emphasize sportsmanship and fair play. Kids practice skill development with kicking, passing, dribbling and shooting on goal.

Each player receives a team jersey, and children must have shin guards to play. Cleats are helpful but not mandatory. 

Teams

Teams are formed based on age and grade. We assign teams based on the child's age as of Aug. 1, 2018. 

Each player receives a team jersey, and children must have shin guards to play. Cleats are helpful but not mandatory.
