Help your child explore their interests and tap into their talent
YMCA sports lessons are designed to be energetic, fast-paced, inclusive, and fun for everyone. We know kids learn by doing, so we keep them moving for the whole class — no sitting around watching others play! Everyone’s involved in skill-building activities at all times, and everyone gets to participate in a game each class. Sports should be a fun, positive experience for kids, which is why we focus on building team spirit by ending every class with a cheer.

Our certified instructors teach kids foundational dance movements and routines. Children will be introduced to a fun new way to stay active, and be encouraged to let their creativity flourish.
Each class begins with stretching and conditioning exercises designed to help the kids get warmed up and ready to move. Next, dancers will learn short combinations of moves that they'll perform while moving across the floor. The kids are then broken up into smaller groups, where they get close attention from instructors as they learn new moves and work to refine their technique. Each class ends with the dancers practicing and adding on to their routine, which they get to perform at their dance recital.
At the Y, basic swim skills are just the beginning. Our expert instructors make sure kids learn the fundamentals at their own pace, stay active and engaged, and are always working towards new challenges to keep their learning experience exciting.
