Sports and Recreation
BUILDING SKILLS AND DEVELOPING CHARACTER
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ will carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to build the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out. We offer seasonal youth sports including basketball, flag football and soccer. Our year round youth programs include gymnastics, karate and home school physical education. Register for one of our programs and watch your child grow.
FIND YOUR PERFECT FIT
Our classes are free with all memberships. The Y offers a myriad of classes for all walks of life and levels of fitness. From Yoga to Kettlebell, Step Interval to Cycling, Zumba to Insanity, Family Fitness to Senior Fitness...we have it all! If you are looking for someone to push you, we can do that too.
Health and Wellness
BECOME YOUR BEST SELF
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
