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. Open to non-members.

Gym & Fun

2 – 3 Years Old | No Need to Be Potty Trained

Non-Members Welcome

First step before considering preschool is this class focusing on independence, separation and gaining group social skills. Our dedicated staff will identify individual needs of each young child and help prepare them for a school setting, or just help them make new friends and enjoy themselves when away from home. We believe through art, music, social play-stations, story time and physical activities, children will gain confidence, curiosity, communication and a love of learning. Please pack a light snack and drink. Let us help your child be ready and excited to take the next step.
