The following programs are brand new:

Fearless Falling – “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” We’ve all seen the commercials. You don’t have to let that be you! This new program teaches seniors how to safely fall and get back on their feet without assistance. Keep your independence, restore your confidence and improve your balance and strength with this new class, taught in the safety of our well padded Gymnastics Center by one of our most experienced personal trainers.

Mediation exercises, strengthens, and relaxes the mind, benefitting your overall well being in the same way a good workout contributes to your physical health.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – BJJ is our newest addition to our martial arts programs at the Y. Taught by international jiu jitsu competitor Jessie Carpenter, this class will teach you the skills and discipline of this ancient grappling art. Whether you are an avid competitor, brand new to the sport, or just looking to dust off the old gi sitting unused in your closet, this class can accommodate you, as instruction will be adapted to fit all abilities and experience levels.
But that’s not all. We’ve also revamped and reintroduced some popular programs:
Squeaky Sneakers – Have you wanted to get your 3-4 year old active at the Y, playing games and socializing with other young children? This play based movement class is the perfect introduction to sports and athletics for your youngster. From skipping and jumping to running and kicking, your child will develop age appropriate movement, coordination, balance, and social skills all while having fun!
Outdoor Skills – New England offers a fascinating natural playground and this class for 9-12 year olds teaches boys and girls all about it! Our Outdoor Skills class combines environmental and outdoor education with good old fashioned fun and exploring. From plant and wildlife ID to wilderness survival skills, this class offers a little bit of something for every kid who loves the outdoors.
Girls Sports and Fitness – We’ve added a fitness component to our all girls sports class. Get your daughter hooked on a healthy lifestyle from a young age – our female coaches will introduce your daughter to healthy activity ranging from sports to age appropriate training in our Wellness Center and introductions to group exercise. Since this class is open to 10-13 year olds, it provides an opportunity for your child to utilize areas of the YMCA she would not otherwise be able to, thanks to the supervision of our qualified staff. Help your daughter build confidence and get excited about activity by signing her up for this supportive, girls only program.
Registration for Y members opens April 13th with the greater community gaining registration access on April 20th. Be sure to register early and secure your spot in one of these exciting new programs.
