Navy YSF Program Vision

Our program is designed to do two things. First, we simply want to enhance the quality and number of sports- and wellness-related programs on naval installations. Second, we want to use these family-friendly programs as a focal point for Navy families. That way, wherever they go, there will be Navy YSF programs waiting to provide fun, positive activities that enrich the lives of Navy families. The Navy YSF Core Service Areas ensure that the physical, cognitive, social and emotional needs of youth and teens are addressed and provided for through a variety of engaging and appropriate programs. While programs will vary based on location, you can expect a dedicated effort to creating activities that tailor to a variety of interests, ages and needs at every Navy installation.

Navy YSF Program Mission Statement

The Navy YSF Program will be regarded as the primary provider of nationally recognized, high-quality Youth Sports and Fitness services for military families, and the Navy YSF Program will be acknowledged as a leading sports and fitness organization in terms of administration, development, participation, performance, and profile.

Navy YSF Programs will encourage youth participation in sports and fitness activities by providing opportunities for fun and age-appropriate programming (ages 3 to 18 years). This programming will appropriately support the developmental level of children and help all children and youth to feel successful and find physical activities that they can enjoy throughout their lifetimes. The YSF Program will create a relaxed and enjoyable climate of mutual respect, understanding, equity, and diversity of programs and services, which will assist military personnel in balancing the competing demands of family life and contributing to mission accomplishment.

The Navy YSF Program will strive to instill the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, and a sense of teamwork so that children, youth, and teens will become strong, healthy, well-adjusted, and contributing members of society. The YSF Program will work in partnership with parents, volunteers, and community organizations to provide a full range of fitness and sports activities.
