Youth & Family Wellness

The Y has always been a place where families can play and be active together, and now that’s more important than ever. We believe in a healthy spirit, mind and body for the whole family! Whether it’s swimming in the pool, playing a game of basketball or pickleball, taking a class or playing together outdoors, we have options that keep your family active, engaged, healthy and creating memories together.

Group Exercise

Our classes vary by location but good news! Your membership has city-wide access as a member benefit. This means that you can explore amenities, classes and more at neighboring Y’s across the city and even around the nation!

Tips for Healthy Kids and Families

  • From increased screen time to virtual school, studies show that children moved less in 2021 than usual. Help kids get back into physical activity routines by setting at least 60 minutes for fun and play every day.
  • Kids have had a stressful year! Check out our mindfulness classes for the whole family.
  • It’s important to let kids be kids! Parents should make sure they are joining in the fun with their kids. Close the laptop, turn off the phone and have uninterrupted play time together. These opportunities allow adults to model a love for activity while providing invaluable family bonding time.
  • Kids need a tummy full of healthy food to keep their bodies fueled and focused! Research shows that kids who help make their own meals and snacks are more likely to try the food they make. Enlist kids in meal prep to encourage taste exploration.
