Outdoor Sports - YMCA of Southwestern Indiana

Outdoor Sports

YMCA Sports outdoor programming focuses on introducing and offering non-traditional recreational sports venues. Our goal is to introduce recreational options like fishing, kayaking, and other outdoor sports as something new and unique while sharing these experiences with parents, grandparents and guardians in the great outdoors.
