YMCA Action Kids
Kids need 90 minutes of physical activity each day. Through sports and nutrition instruction, your kids will start healthy habits now so they will be active for life. Drop-in for one day a week or register up to an entire month!
Keep ‘em moving with supervised sports like basketball, badminton, hockey, martial arts and even yoga!
Let's make a splash! We help kids jump in, have fun, learn to swim and grow in confidence. Check out our schedules to the right to find out more about our registered swim lessons and Parent-and-Tot classes.
