Youth Sports

We offer classes, leagues, and private lessons for a variety of youth sports. Our open gym times provide a chance for adults and children alike to shoot hoops, play a game of pick-up basketball or work on their registertechniques. We also offer adapted leagues so all children have the opportunity to experience the joy of recreation. Whether your child's goal is to learn a new sport, improve upon existing skills or simply have a good time, we guarantee that they will find a home here at the RecPlex.

Youth Sports Classes

Our classes teach kids the basics and offer fun activities to sharpen their skills. Depending upon the season, classes may include volleyball, Tae Kwon Do, archery, tumbling, basketball and soccer. Check out our Explore Guide to view and register for our current sports classes. All our classes encourage fair play, family involvement and positive reinforcement. RecPlex programs and classes are inclusive and encourage children of all abilities to participate. If you need certain accommodations for your child, please call us at 937-433-0130 as we welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can best meet their needs. 

Youth Sports Leagues

Our leagues are fun, recreational in nature and designed to teach the importance of team building. We offer both indoor and outdoor leagues so your child can stay active all year long. Check out our Explore Guide to view and register for our current sports leagues. We also offer adapted leagues specifically designed for children with differing abilities as we believe that every person deserves the chance to participate in sports and have fun while doing it! Curious about accommodations or have questions? Give us a call at 937-433-0130. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can best serve you and your child!

Please note that your child's age on the first day of the program is used to determine their age group. Team assignments are based on participants' time preferences and the availability of volunteer coaches. 

Volunteer Coaches

Without volunteer coaches, our programs would not be possible. Anyone age 17 or older can volunteer to serve as a head coach of a youth team. Experience is not necessary. Requests for playing with a friend are not a guarantee unless your group provides a head coach. Please consider volunteering as we are only as successful as the volunteers who coach our teams! Complete the volunteer form.
