PROGRAMS 101

Experience all that the YMCA has to offer you and your family by participating in one of our program classes. 

Get creative with our Arts and Humanities program by taking a dance class or learning how to play an instrument. Give your family the thrill of experiencing a sport such as youth soccer, adult dodgeball or basketball. And provide your family with a life saving skill by enrolling them in a YMCA swim lesson.

The YMCA offers 5 program sessions throughout each year. Program classes are open to everyone in the community but by being a member of the YMCA you receive discounts on program class fees and priority registration.

Registration is open to family members on Monday of registration week and to youth members on Tuesday of registration week. Non-members can register on Wednesday along with family and youth members.
