Beyond Healthy Kids Day, the Kenosha YMCA offers a wide range of programs for children and adults that promote healthy living and physical activity throughout the year.

They Y’s youth sports programs are structured to provide each child an equal opportunity to improve. Each eight week instructional program is focused on giving each child an equal opportunity to improve their sport specific fundamentals, game knowledge, sportsmanship and teamwork, appropriate competition, and most importantly fun. As the program progresses from week to week, the instructors will be spending less time on instructional drills and more time on game strategy through simulated games. Children are divided by grade level in each instructional program. See current offerings.

Now open for enrollment, our Preschool Child Care Program uses a Creative Curriculum to educate children while promoting healthy lifestyle choices through exercise and balanced nutrition. Both half-day and full-day options are available with a flexible pricing to suit your needs. Membership discounts apply. Download the Enrollment Packet for more details.
