  • Note from the Y Director:

The summer season will run from June 2nd -July 28th (No off days). The gyms Ott will be using for games will be El Camino Baptist (1-2 and 3-4 grade), Ott YMCA (All Grades), Desert Sky (5-6, 7-9), Cienega High school (5-6, 7-9) and the NEW Kino YMCA on Ajo (All Grades).  

The schedule will be available for view starting Friday May 25th after 6pm at our citywide sports page. www.tucsonymca.org/citywide

The schedule will update every Wednesday and it DOES CHANGE week to week, this allows us to rematch up teams based on how they are doing in the league and move team to the correct division and league. Please check the schedule page after 6pm every Wednesday during the season to see what times are confirmed for the weekend.

There has been a few rule changes this season.

We are also putting into place a rule for player injuries and concussions. In accordance with high school rules anytime play is stopped for a injured player, that player must leave the player floor for at least one possession. If a player is bleeding that player must leave the game and they may not return until bleeding has stopped.  If the player has blood on their uniform they will not be allowed back into the game.  It is my suggestion that teams purchase a extra jersey or two to have in case of this situation.  Some sites will have extra uniforms there so ask the staff at the site for an extra jersey.

If a game is stopped but to an apparent head injury during play, they will be taken out of the game immediately and will not be able to participate in youth sports activities until they have been cleared by qualified medical personal.   The YMCA will need a note clearing the child for participation in YMCA Youth sports activities. That player may NOT participate until I have given you the ok to allow them to practice or play.  Safety is our first priority here at the YMCA and I don't want to put my coaches or staff in a position to make a call about the child's well being. We will lave that to the experts and make sure the child is safety to come back and have fun in our program. I ask that all my coaches go to http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/online_training.html and take their training on concussions.  Please let me know when you have taken it. It only takes about 20 minutes and it really helps coaches deal with the possibility of concussions during the season.
