The YMCA of Greenwich has announced its spring line-up of exercise classes, aquatic sports and social and health living programs. In addition to the YMCA’s typical high energy spring programming, they are offering five new courses geared toward promoting a healthier more active lifestyle.
Registration begins March 17th for the YMCA’s spring programming in Youth Development, Healthy Living, Aquatics and Social Responsibility. The programs run from March 29, 2014 until June 20, 2014. This spring there are five new programs, including:
- Middle School Strength Training
- Parent-Child Meet-up Playgroups
- 3 on 3 Teen Basketball
- New private & semi-private swim lesson options
- Free swim lessons for all YMCA Family members ages 6 months to 3.5 years
Ed Philipp, the YMCA’s CEO, stated: “2014 is your Come Back Year. Come back to the YMCA and see all of the tremendous programs we offer. There is something for everyone. And with summer around the corner, this is the perfect time to start an exercise routine that will help you look and feel fit. This is also a great time for kids to improve their swimming skills so they are safe in the water. Our instructors can help children of any age improve and gain confidence in the water.”
To encourage participation in the Swim School, the YMCA has set up the “G2G Swim Challenge.” The YMCA will be tracking swim school laps and showing progress on a map as the “Y Guy” swims across the Atlantic Ocean from Greenwich, Connecticut to Greenwich, England. It is a fun way to see how far the swim school is swimming and to learn about Greenwich’s connection to Greenwich, England.
In addition to the new programming, the YMCA is offering more than 34 Youth Development programs, 46 Healthy Living programs, Social Responsibility programs – including Red Cross Courses. Their spring aquatics program will also be in full swing, including:
- Swim School
- Marlins Swim Team
- Marlins Diving Club
- Greenwich Aquatics Water Polo
- Master’s Level Programs
- Adult Aquatics
