We believe people of all ages should have access to healthy activities. The following classes provide opportunities for kids to enjoy their own class or participate with a parent or guardian. We are continually changing or adding to the youth class schedule to accomodate the needs of our families. If you have ideas or suggestions for youth/family classes, please contact us at the Y.
SPARK™ Kids Fitness
This program focuses on active participation and practice to improve youth fitness, skills, and enjoyment of physical activity. Fun, manageable activities provide opportunities for engagement which include all fitness and skill levels to keep all participants involved and motivated. Youth will also learn self-responsibility, teamwork, and socialization skills. Players are always engaged and no one sits out “waiting for their turn” to play. Activities focus on specific goals, such as team building, games, personal fitness, sports, dance, play, fitness fun, healthy eating, and more, sometimes with music. Ages 7-12 (approximate)
Parents are required to sign children in and out of class and must be in the building during class time. Registration for members: register in class with instructor. Registration for non-members: register at the YMCA customer service desk.

Y YOUTH FITNESS MEMBERSHIP (Y.F.M.)
Cardio and Strength Training For Youth Age 10+
This program provides youth with more fitness options and allows them to utilize the cardio and weight rooms in the Fitness Center. Youth are invited to get their Youth Fitness Membership (Y.F.M.) which will allow them to use the Fitness Center any time during staffed hours when they present their Y.F.M. membership card. To obtain this membership, youth will attend an orientation class to learn how to use designated cardio machines (stationary bikes, treadmills, cross trainers, etc.) as well as appropriate Nautilus strength training machines for upper body, lower body and abdominal strengthening. They will also learn how to correctly perform exercises such as abdominal crunches, push-ups and more. For those interested, a program design will be available to help participants easily build various workouts which incorporate cardio, strength, core and stretching components. Youth will also be coached on appropriate gym etiquette. Fitness Center Staff will be available to assist our Y.F.M. participants.
Please make an orientation appointment by calling the Fitness Center: 701-775-2586
Y.F.M. members may use the Fitness Center any time during staffed hours with or without parent or guardian (youth must present Y.F.M. card):
Members age 15 and over may use the Fitness Center any time.
Contact a YMCA Member Service Representative to help you schedule any of the orientation sessions with our Fitness Center Staff Team at 701-775-2586 or click here .
