Youth Sports Program: Team and Individual Sports
The MWR Youth Sports Program offers a variety of organized sporting activities that promote the psychological, social and physical well being of the Rota young people. The program offers recreational activities that enhance physical fitness, self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills. MWR provides the staff, equipment and playing areas necessary to facilitate the athletic and recreational development of children. There are team sports such as baseball, softball, soccer, basketball and flag football offered at different times during the year. There are also individual participation challenges such as 1k-3k fun runs, mini-triathlons, swimming events and fitness clinics throughout the year.
Each season, the upcoming team sport sign up is advertised for three weeks. Following a skills assessment, players are divided into teams, which are chosen to be as fair and equal as possible regarding age and skill levels.
Parental involvement and voluntarism is a key aspect of the Youth Sports Program. Clinics are held to train coaches and officials. Besides a need for volunteer coaches, there is a need for volunteer team parents and other volunteer roles.
Please Note: A minimum of 1 parent per household whose child is participating in any Navy CYP Youth Sports Program is required to enroll in PAYS and complete the required training. Please click here to get started!
Youth Soccer (Please see 2018 Soccer Game Schedule on right)
The Youth Soccer Program is approximately a nine game season, weather permitting. The season starts with a mandatory sports assessment for all players 6-14 years of age. The YS Coordinator will make teams based on the results of the assessment scores from each player. This is to ensure each team has similar combined team skill set. This program will enhance social skills, team building and nteraction as the result of positive mentorship from the volunteer coaches. All players will play at least one half of each game depending on team numbers and practice attendance of the players. All games and practices are Monday through Thursday at the Youth Sports Fields. Practice times on Monday and Wednesday will vary due to coaches' preferences, but game times are 5 pm, 6 pm and 7pm respectively. Please contact the Youth Sports Coordinator if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to coach or officiate any of our Youth Sports.
Youth Sports and Fitness also provides a Motor Skill Development Program (Start Smart) for kids 3-5 years of age. We try to stay with the theme of the sports season but the priority is motor skill development. Basic sports skills of throwing, catching, kicking will be introduced with light conditioning and strength building which are the program's core teachings. This program will enhance alertness, coordination and the overall fitness of your youth. This program is once a week, usually before games of the recreation leagues. This activity will require active parent involvement in activities, due to the young ages of the participants. Please contact Youth Sports if you have more questions
