Global ChampionsWe work to change the lives of those who need it most.

Thank you for visiting the Palm Beach Gardens Youth Athletic Association (PBGYAA) website. We are a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization with more than 1,500 kids playing in our eight Recreation Leagues. We work closely with the City of Palm Beach Gardens, who provides us with the best sports facilities in the county. PBGYAA sports include: Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Flag Football, Football, Lacrosse, Soccer and Softball.

It is because of our enthusiastic volunteers throughout the PBGYAA sports leagues that our programs are so successful. All volunteer coaches have gone though a full background check by the city of Palm Beach Gardens. Each Division Board consists of incredibly dedicated volunteers who are elected for an annual term.
