MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Chris Bellecourt, Sports & Recreation Director cbellecourt@ymca-snoco.org 425 357 3022

Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Mill Creek YMCA. What brings hundreds of people through our doors each day?

Malaika Brown, Director of Family Engagement & Impact mbrown@ymca-snoco.org 425 224 8041

Our members tell us as if it's second nature. To them, the YMCA is about total wellness - enhancing spiritual, mental, and physical health. Members also tell us that one of the most important reasons they come to the Mill Creek YMCA is for the quality time it allows them to spend with their family. In our busy lives, family time is often the hardest to schedule, but it’s also one of the most important aspects of our children’s development. The YMCA is the place where someone new can immediately become a part of community life. Many praise the Y for its inclusive approach to people facing physical or mental challenges or financial difficulties. Most important, the YMCA is responding to critical challenges facing our community, including constructive after-school programs for tweens and teens, youth obesity, affordable childcare and summer camps or life-saving skills such as swim instruction for kids and adults. It all comes together in a way that sets the Mill Creek YMCA apart from other not-for-profit community organizations: The YMCA fuses programs, exercise, learning, self-esteem, confidence, knowledge, and camaraderie to build people one step at a time. The end result is a stronger individual, a strengthened family - and, ultimately, a stronger community Thank you for making the Mill Creek YMCA a part of your life! We look forward to serving you and your family throughout 2017.

Sincerely,

Kyla Smith, Branch Executive Director

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION NOW IT’S EASIER THAN EVER TO JOIN THE Y! Membership in the Y is a special thing. Be a part of a leading nonprofit organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The YMCA of Snohomish County is a membership organization and anyone can join. So, with simple monthly dues, you have no contracts or minimum stays to worry about and no sales pitches to endure. Just quality, healthy programs that your whole family can enjoy.

MEMBERSHIP TYPES FACILITY MEMBERSHIP Get full access to fitness centers at all five YMCAs in Snohomish County with a Facility Membership. Choose from a wide menu of free group exercise classes, enjoy lap and recreational swimming, and receive a free wellness orientation when you join. And as a facility member, you’ll be eligible for priority registration and reduced fees on specialty classes and programs for your whole family. PROGRAM MEMBERSHIP If you’re not already a Y Facility Member and want to participate in programs like summer camps, youth sports, swimming lessons and child care, you’ll need an annual Program Membership. You’ll receive the same great level of quality and caring for which the Y is known, but without access to wellness centers and other amenities offered through a full Facility Membership. COMMUNITY MEMBERSHIP Belonging is a philosophy at the heart of the Y. Everyone in the community is considered a free Community Member and is welcome to participate in key community events and programs such as fun runs, health fairs, and community education. MY Y IS NOW EVERY Y IN WASHINGTON We want to encourage members to use the Y as often as they can. Sometimes, it’s more convenient for members to use a Y in a different location when travelling, near a workplace, or in another region. Now, full facility/full privilege YMCA members can use other Y facilities throughout the state. See website for program details. CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP As part of the YMCA’s corporate membership plan, employees will enjoy the benefits of belonging to Snohomish County’s largest and most respected health, wellness, and human service organization. For more information about corporate membership, please contact the our Senior Director of Member and Community Engagement.

SWIM, SPORTS & PLAY SPORTS LEAGUES The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. Plus, the benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning a new skill or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out. The YMCA approach to Youth Sports is different from many leagues. We focus on the four YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Every child gets equal playing time and we encourage fair play, positive competition, and family involvement. Our goal is to enable each player to excel in that other game we’re all familiar with: the game of life. All sports and divisions are co-ed. SPRING YOUTH BASKETBALL Grades K-6 The YMCA offers an instructional spring basketball program that emphasizes fundamental skills such as passing, dribbling, defense and participation. The YMCA Spring Basketball League is designed to be an opportunity for boys and girls to continue their growth, abilities, and skills development in the game of basketball. The season has eight weeknight practices and Saturday games. Season: March 20-May 20 (No games April 29) Registration Closes: March 1 Facility Member Fee: Program Member Fee: Jersey Fee:

YMCA youth soccer promises no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques. Equipment, field size, and player number are age specific to increase involvement and touches on the soccer ball. Participants will improve basic soccer skills, learn good sportsmanship and have fun!

WHERE DID ALL THE FISH GO? CHANGES TO Y SWIM LESSONS As “America’s Swim Instructor,” the Y has been teaching kids how to be safe around water for decades. Beginning with our Spring II session, we’ll be making some changes to our swim lesson structure to simplify and more accurately describe skill levels.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT? We’re making two key changes to swim lessons: Name changes: Lesson names are changing to stages that better reflect the skills learned, and we’re moving away from the identifying fish levels. Visit your local Y for more information and a detailed guide on which stage is appropriate for your children. When registering for upcoming sessions, these changes will be reflected both on the website and if signing up at your local branch. Curriculum changes: We’re also changing the curriculum to better serve different learning styles of our youth participants. We’ve simplified the structure by focusing on benchmark skills and goals in each stage. Students progress from fundamentals to stroke technique over six distinct stages. Swimming lessons are essential for kids to become safe around water, and learn to set and achieve goals. We’re looking forward to launching this new swim lesson structure and helping many more young people build swimming confidence.
