Fun & Fitness

The Y’s youth programs and activities provide opportunities for kids to realize who they are and what they are capable of achieving, all while making friends and memories along the way.

Our programs are designed to work with children of all ages and abilities. We focus on teamwork, sportsmanship, body awareness, flexibility, balance, coordination, skill development, and creativity. At the same time, children build their self-esteem and confidence as they develop a lifelong desire for physical fitness and learning.
