Everyone has an idea of what a Y is. For many they think it is a health and wellness center. In reality the health and wellness center is only part of what the Y does. Healthy living is only part of the Y and not the whole Y. For many they see these buildings with wellness equipment and think that is all it is. The Y is truly so much more than a health and wellness center.
More than just wellness the Y is a place for children to learn, grow, and thrive. The goal in our Y programs is for kids to have a safe place to go where they can learn and have fun at the same time. In our sports programs children learn more than just how to play the game. The goal of sports is for children to learn teamwork, sportsmanship, and how to overcome challenges. We do that through a nurturing environment that teaches the core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
The Y is also a place for families. How many places around town can you go that will allow you to have something for the whole family? You can do things together or have each family member do something different. The Y has something for everyone from cradle to grave. Families can swim together or play basketball together or they can have a person in each part of the Y enjoying something different.
Health and wellness centers are just that, but the Y is so much more. It offers things gyms just cant. It offers a chance to be of something more. At the Y, you are part of a cause. The cause of the Y is strengthening community. Come in today and be part of something that isn’t just a gym but so much more.
