The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.
The benefits gained through early exposure to fitness are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in programs at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
Youth Fitness Classes include:
