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 (Y-School 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!

Tumbling celebrates all the things kids love to do: jump, tumble, twist, turn, hop, balance, and move. Our classes focus on helping each child improve on the fundamentals of tumbling and movement in a safe and energetic atmosphere.


Beginners (ages: 3-5)

The beginner tumbling class will guide your child through creative movements. It is designed to build self-confidence, body awareness and social and motor skills while learning basic gymnastics fundamentals in a FUN environment.

Intermediate Tumblers (ages: 6-7)

The intermediate class will continue to work on the basic skills and fundamentals of gymnastics, in addition to adding more difficult acrobatics.

Advanced Tumblers (ages 7+)

The advanced class will be geared toward perfecting your child’s basic gymnastics skills. We will also be challenging their body and mind to more advanced strength and acrobatic movements.

For safety purposes: Children are asked to wear a leotard, no tights or socks, no jewelry or earrings, and have their hair in a ponytail away from face.

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.
