We recently found out that gyms and fitness centers will not be allowed to reopen at the beginning of Phase 4 on June 26. We are shocked and deeply saddened, but we are resilient! We are moving forward and offering what services and facilities we can while remaining compliant with the Governor's orders. Beginning Monday June 29th the Geneva YMCA Swimming Pool will be open for member lap swim. Click Here to reserve your lane!

The kindergarten thru 2nd level is all about developing a love for the game. Most of the kids at this level are unable to pass and catch very well and that is to be expected. It is important that coaches and parents encourage the kids to have fun and enjoy themselves while trying to teach good, fundamental mechanics. Winning is certainly fun, but, at this level, we want the kids to enjoy coming to play.
The 3rd and 4th grade level should emphasize the foundations of skill development. Players should be encouraged to use both their right and left hand equally throughout practice and games. We begin to introduce some of the simpler tactical concepts of the game at this level as well and place a greater emphasis on team offense and defense.
The 5th thru 6th grade teams is when you will really begin to see the game coming together. Teams are expected to understand some of the tactical principals of the four phases of the game; offense, defense, clearing, and riding. It is also to continue to stress team play at this level. While one big 6th grader might be able to run through the entire team, it won't last for long.
