As kids grow, YMCA programs grow with them. Starting at 3 years old, children can participate in Pre-K sports leagues, which include soccer, T-ball and flag football, and introduce kids to teamwork, sportsmanship and organized activity, under the direction of a dedicated and patient staff. After kids age out of Pre-K programs, they can enroll in youth sports and activities programs. Children in grades K-7 can participate in a variety of sports including basketball, flag football, Taekwondo and dance. YMCA has recently added hip hop, ballet and tap to its youth dance programs to offer a broader range of classes. These programs are great for introducing kids to out-of-school activities and socialization, teamwork, sportsmanship and the basics of the sport. The YMCA programs expanded their Health and Wellness programming to now include teens. Youth ages 10-13 can participate in seasonal Y Strong Training Programs that teach them about gym benefits, safety and etiquette. Sessions take place during school breaks or after school and are led by certified trainers. Additionally, teens ages 10-15 can take a Y Strong Certification course, allowing them to use the YMCA fitness facilities with adult supervision and attend select group fitness classes. Plus, it's free for YMCA members. At the Gallatin Valley YMCA, they are happy to offer quality programs to kids of all ages regardless of ability, cultural background, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or economic status – and they never turn anyone away for an inability to pay. The YMCA is there to help local youth reach their potential through recreational sports and activities and encourage youth development at all stages in life. The Gallatin Valley YMCA is a place, a cause and a community where you can grow, learn and play. They are—where you belong!
