Swim Lessons: Our Swim Lessons are designed to welcome students of varying and diverse abilities to ensure that everyone feels like they belong, and to foster a sense of achievement from the start. We offer lessons for children ages 6 months and up through to adults. Now enjoy a worry-free one-time sign up for all your swim lessons. Sign up beginning August 29 for September 2022-June 2023.
Health and Safety classes: This Fall, we will continue to offer American Red Cross Adult and Pediatric First Aid, CPR and AED courses, along with a variety of Lifeguarding courses. These programs are open to our Y members and members of the community.
Youth Gymnastics: Gymnastics is a fun way for a child to develop motor skills, self-esteem, self-discipline and coordination. Our caring teachers encourage each gymnast to progress at their own pace – whether their goal is to someday be a competitive gymnast or just to have fun. This Fall, we have classes for toddlers through teens with classes for all levels.
Youth Dance: Our dance program aims to enhance the creativity of each individual through movement. We are offering several classes for kids ages 3 and up, aimed at introducing them to different techniques, building or enhancing skills and having fun! Plus, our popular Gymnastics/Dance Combo class is back this Fall!
