Youth Development is part of our mission. At the YMCA we offer a range of programs like youth sports or youth education programs to help develop the children of our community. Become the best baby sitter you can be with Safe Sitter, celebrate birthdays at the Y, and be confident your child is safe while you workout with Play and Learn!

A birthday party is fun and easy when you have it at the Y! Let the kids run in the gym, swim in the pool, or tumble at the Gymnastics Center. We have something for everyone's perfect birthday experience.
Parent's Day Out/Parent's Night Out
PNO and PDO are the perfect opportunities for your child (ages 2-10) to have a fun time with friends while you run errands, go on a date, or take some time for yourself!
Play and Learn
Play and Learn is included in your Family Membership, so there's no need to sign up. Simply scan your child's Y member card when you come in the facility, and bring him or her to the Play and Learn room. Our trained staff create a nurturing environment of warmth, friendliness, and freedom. We lead children ages through a variety of fun, safe playtime activities, including stories, crafts, dress-up, and active play.
This medically accurate instruction series teaches boys and girls how to handle emergencies when caring for young children. Safe Sitters will learn basic life-saving techniques, safety precautions to prevent accidents, how and when to summon help, and tips on basic child care. Class now includes CPR training.
The Zone is a space just for youth ages 7-12 to hang out at the Y. With games, physical challenges, and safe supervision, your kid will look forward to coming to the Y while you work out, take a class, or catch up with friends.
Are you a teen between the ages of 12 and 14 and want to begin an exercise program and learn healthy lifelong habits or enhance your current program? Are you the parent of a teen and interested in introducing them to a healthy, active lifestyle? Our Y.S.T. program is for you!
At the Y, learning friendship skills is just as important as practicing basketball drills. Our experienced coaches and instructors know how to keep your kid safe and healthy while having a blast learning a new sport, honing their talent, or releasing their energy with friends!
