At the Y, we are committed to nurturing the potential of all kids, promoting healthy living and giving back to neighbors. Seventh grade is a critical and transitional time when young teens are often introduced to risk behaviors. Research has shown that kids who adopt healthy habits at this pivotal age can benefit for a lifetime.
That's why the Y offers a free membership to all 7th graders.
Through our free 7th grade memberships, we hope to inspire kids to make good decisions that form life-long healthy habits. We are committed to providing teens with opportunities that help them discover their true potential. Our program encourages kids to step out of their comfort zone and into their growth zone by instilling a sense of independence, responsibility, respect, leadership, and of course, fun!
At the Y, seventh graders enjoy unlimited access to our Wellness Centers, pools, basketball gyms and Y activities geared toward their age group, such as group exercise classes, weekly social events, special events, volunteer opportunities and more. specifically tailored to teens so they can stay healthy and fit. The Y offers a safe place where teens will find opportunities to cultivate values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
