Homeschool Gym and Swim is a co-ed physical education program designed to provide home school or distance/hybrid learning students an opportunity to strengthen their motor skills in a safe and fun environment. The goal of the program is to help each student understand the importance of good health, fair play, and teamwork. Because every child learns and develops at different levels, YMCA coaches adapt the structured activities to meet each child’s needs.
The Home School Gym & Swim program facilitates recreational sports and physical developmental skills that share common basic structure. Activity instruction will include motor skills, eye-hand and eye-foot coordination, sports skill development with game activities to support those skills; emphasizing over all fitness through active movement in the gym and in the pool.
Eligibility ages range from 5 to 15 years of age.
Parents/guardians do not need to remain in the Y facility, although will need to be at the Y no later than 4:00 pm to pick up their children. Parents with younger siblings who have a “Family” registration are welcome to use the pool during pool time with the older siblings. Parents must be in the pool with all additional siblings under the age of 5.
