YMCA Keeps Kids Active

Physical activity is a vital part of health for everyone, including children. But during these Ohio winters, it is challenging to keep daily exercise part of the routine, especially for younger children who are not yet enrolled in school.

The Findlay YMCA serves the community and helps families stay active together. Olivia Wolph, new to the YMCA this year, is the Program Director and has brought some new ideas to our YMCA, focusing on kids and families.

Upcoming classes

The YMCA’s next round of classes starts March 4th, with enrollment beginning February 18th. Classes, offered for children as young as six months old, include swim lessons, dance classes, basketball leagues, soccer, tennis, gymnastics and judo. New to the YMCA this year are classes like Toddler Music Mania, a class that builds on coordination, rhythm, sign language and cognitive skills. The class was created, and is instructed, by Wolph.

The YMCA also offers classes for older kids, like YPAC and Iron Kids, that help older kids (ages 7+) keep fit while learning how to safely use the fitness equipment available at the YMCA.

A night for you

Make sure to sign up for Parents’ Night Out on February 9th from 5-8pm to take your honey on a date while the kids watch a movie, make a craft and make new friends.

Ask about the many YMCA programs that are a fit for your child, to keep them healthy and fit all year long.
