Early Learning

Early Learning

The Y offers an array of exciting programs from sports to toddler programs. Whether its gaining the confidence that comes with learning a new sport, building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, or learning new skills, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole athlete, inside and out. Selecting a sport program to participate in can be as simple as selecting one you or your child have enjoyed as a fan. However, sometimes it makes sense to think through your/your child’s fitness goals and what they enjoy doing. Sports offer the opportunity to participate individually or as a team, and challenges participants in different ways through endurance, speed, mental toughness, teamwork, strength and coordination. Learn a new sport or refine existing skills under the supervision of caring, skilled, and supportive Y coaches and instructors. Choose from classes, fitness, clinics, and specialty programs.

Please check our schedule for current class times and locations.
