Youth options for the Wellness Center start at age 8. See our options below to get your child engaged with a lifetime of wellness. For ages 8-15, youth will need to complete an online or in-person training with their parents to help ensure they have the knowledge and skills for a successful and safe workout. After completing the participant information questions, please review all OYST requirements, guidelines, and information in this presentation with the participating youth family member to receive a wristband that they must wear while on the wellness floor to utilize the equipment.
Ages 8-9: Youth may use cardio equipment and attend group exercise classes with a parent in immediate proximity.
Ages 10-12: Youth may use cardio equipment, pin-select equipment and attend group exercise classes with a parent in immediate proximity.
Ages 13-15: Youth may access the Wellness Center and group exercise classes without a parent.
Ages 16: Youth have access to all group exercise classes and the full Wellness Center without taking the course.
Once you have completed the training, visit your nearest YMCA Center to be issued a wristband.
