Our youth programs follow the YMCA four core values, caring, honesty, respect & responsibility. Class goals enhance fitness, coordination and socialization in a safe, fun environment. The focus is on gross and fine motor skills, balance, strength and flexibility. We use a variety of equipment including balls, parachutes, mats, bean bags and hula hoops. We provide classes for youth ages 1 year through the teens. Some of our youth activities may include movement to music, dance, martial arts and yoga.
