Physical Activities for Kids (0-12 years)

Get your kids moving with our sports courses.

At the YMCA, physical literacy is at the very core of our programs. Through our group activities for kids, discover how we cultivate a sense of well-being in all participants, encourage having fun, and promote the adoption of healthy and active lifestyle habits from a young age.

Using a brand-new format, we now offer courses of basketball to introduce children between the ages of 6 and 11 to basic motor skills and sports.
Every course is tailored to the age and ability of your child. Structured around a guided progression and skill evaluation, your kids will develop while having a great time!

Grounded in the concepts of physical literacy, classes have been specifically designed to develop not only kids' physical skills, but also their confidence, motivation, understanding and knowledge so that they may develop a desire to move from an early age.
