Teamwork, Confidence, Friendship


You may think this is just lip service, but the YMCA’s sports programs, both competitive teams and recreational programs, are working hard to create these benefits for participants.


Sometimes a family has to make choices about the recreational and extracurricular activities their children can participate in. We feel every child should have the opportunity to participate so they can learn, grow and thrive. So, in each of our programs, there is financial assistance available.


One parent recently wrote this about their experience:

Our son has improved so much in his confidence and demeanor by being part of this program. He has friends and coaches who love him and have been so positive in his life. I can’t think of a day that he hasn’t wanted to go to practice or a meet he hasn’t wanted to attend. Thank you YMCA for all you do for families and the Greenwood Community.


You can support local families that just need a little bit of help in their fees so their child can participate in a character building program like YMCA Youth Sports or a competitive team like swimming, gymnastics or cheerleading, that can balance the desire to win and excel with values like respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.


Every gift makes a difference.  Everyone has a role to play.

Together, we can achieve so much more.  Give today.

Don’t Miss the 16th Annual Community Prayer Breakfast

2014 Event Set for November 13

An event that is special builds upon successes each year. From the very beginning, the YMCA Christian Emphasis Committee was very pleased with how the event has started and continued. Community leaders make it a point to attend and many have taken part in the program itself.

Keynote SpeakerDoug Pollock

Doug Pollock is committed to guiding God’s people into outward focused living. He is an author, a speaker, a chaplain in the YMCA, and a reflective practitioner whose focus is to help Christ followers worldwide increase the quality and the quantity of their spiritual conversations in practical, doable, and authentic ways.

Since 1983, Doug’s ministry with Athletes in Action has taken him to 39 different countries, 6 of our 7 continents, and throughout most of the United States to share God’s never-changing message with an ever-changing world.

His two books “Irresistible Evangelism” and “God Space” in combination with his outwardly-focused workshop have opened up doors for Doug to speak in faith communities worldwide. He is a frequent speaker at regional and national conferences across the U.S. He’s had the privilege of speaking at the Pentagon’s Prayer breakfast in Washington D. C., the national staff conferences of Campus Crusade for Christ (now known as CRU) in the U.S, Canada, Moldova, and Poland, and has done two national speaking tours of New Zealand.

Doug has an undergraduate degree from Kent State University, and graduate degrees from Miami of Ohio, and Columbia International University. He is married to his wife Martha, and they have 2 boys named David and Jonathan. They make their home just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio.
