YES Sports at HCES

Philosophy: YES Sports focuses on the Exploration (or Sampling) Phase of athletic development. 
  • Ages 4 through 12 are the ages during which athletic development is most crucial.
  • YES encourages children to try different sports in an effort to explore their skills.
  • Early “sampling” may lead to a longer playing career, enhanced friend relationships, increased motor skills development, as well as increased motivation, confidence and self-direction.
YES Sports focuses on development rather than competition.
  • While there will be competitive gameplay, the emphasis will be on skills training.
  • Competition can hinder talent development and can result in too much time “on the bench” for some athletes, prohibiting them from improving their skills.
  • Our coaches have the abilities needed to motivate and encourage young athletes which will aid in their development. Success is defined by growth, not the win-loss column.
YES Sports focuses on a positive, uplifting environment for everyone.
  • Sportsmanship is an Expectation. Let the players play, let the coaches coach, let the officials officiate, let the spectators be positive.
  • Poor sportsmanship, divisive language or behavior are not part of the YES culture.
