About the event

Gym and Swim will be on Fridays, April 12-May 17, from 10am-12pm for ages 5 years old-8th grade. We are going to open this up through middle school this year and see how it goes. We will have a younger and older group. Groups will be divided by age. It will be based on how many sign up in the different age catergories, but it will most likely be 5 years old - 10 or 11 years old and 10 or 11 years old - 8th grade. For those who are 10-11 - you know your child and which class will fit them best. It will include one hour of non structured swim time and one hour of parent led gym time. The younger group will have swim time first. I assume we will need to have an adult in the pool if we have students younger than 6 participate since this has been the rule previously.

The non member pricing has increased by $5 due to the cost of pool chemicals, etc. YMCA Member pricing is still $15 per family for the entire six week session. Non-member pricing is $30 for the first child and $5 for EACH additional child (max of $50) for the entire six week session. This is not a week to week fee. You pay for the entire session, even if you have to miss some weeks. Swim lessons will not be offered for this session. Although you will sign up for this event here like normal so we know who plans to participate, you will not pay REACH via paypal like you typically do. The YMCA has asked that each family individually REGISTER AND PAY AT THE YMCA. You may do this at the front desk when you arrive for the first session. If you choose this option please allow extra time the first day. You may also call or stop by before then and register. (If you call it may take a little longer if someone walks in and needs help.) For the first time this year you may also conveniently use this link to register - If you have multiple children you will only register one and then there will be a box where you list all the names of those participating. There will then be a drop down list for the fee and you will choose how many children are participating. You will  still need to stop by the desk each week to sign in and then proceed to the pool (younger group) or gym (older group).

We MUST have parent participation for the gym time or this event can't happen. MOST PARENTS (moms or dads:) will need to teach a gym class. You can also team teach with a friend or an older child. There will be 12 sessions available to teach (6 for the younger group and 6 for the older group). Amanda Slone has graciously offered to teach both groups for gym class the first week so we will have 10 other classes available. Typically the gym class lasts about 50 minutes to allow changing time for the pool. Please ask if you need help with ideas or wonder what gym equipment is availble for you to use. We have most types of balls (basketball, volleyball, soccer, playground, etc.), jump ropes, parachute, bean bags, cones, etc. There will be a link with a form that Amanda Slone created sent out to everyone who registers to sign up to teach gym.

This event has a group. You’re welcome to join the group once you register for the event.
