Kids who participate in sports at the Y discover so much more than their athletic abilities. They build character, develop self-confidence and create healthy relationships through positive competition.


 

Overview

Participants will work on skill building and games, this allows them to put their hard work into action. We encourage kids to bring their own specialized sports equipment (cleats, shin guards, glove, etc.), all fundamental equipment will be provided by the Y. A wide variety of sports are offered for kids of all skill levels and abilities. Dates, hours and cost vary by sport. See specific sport information for more details.

CREATIVE RHYTHM AND SWIM

We will explore creativity through songs, instruments, movement and stories. Each week has a new theme with songs, listening and interacting with a new story. This class will enhance your child’s cognitive, literature, coordination, and creativity skills. Come join us and get ready to get creative! NEXT… To the pool we go! After some creative music and movement, we will work on our moves in the pool. We will have some
fun getting comfortable and confident in the water!
Please have your child dressed with their swim suit on before dropping them off in the Multi-Purpose Room (YSchool Age Room).

MORE THAN SPORTS WITH A TWIST

We will spend an exciting fun filled hour discovering sports, yoga, and team games. We spend our first half exploring a sport through age appropriate games and stations. We will explore 2 different sports each session and spend at least three weeks on each sport. After sports exploration we will transition into yoga for 10-15 minutes. Each week we will add a few new stretches to our routine. We then like to take the last 15-20 minutes to learn and play a new team building gym game. Come get your wiggles out with us in this highly active class!

The YMCA Karate Program focuses on both physical techniques and personal growth. Using both drills and games, we learn punches, kicks, breakfalls and throws, self-defense techniques, kata and sparring. Physical benefits include increased flexibility, coordination, balance and general fitness. We also work on focus, self-control, manners, confidence and respect. The sessions are continuous throughout the year and build upon each other. However, children may join at anytime as classes are limited to 12 students so individual attention is possible. Sensei Sarah has been studying Karate since 2003, and teaching since 2011. She is a 2nd degree black belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate.
