“Fall is an exciting time at the YMCA. The beginning of a new school year is the perfect time to try a new sport or exercise regimen, and our expanded fall program offers something for everyone. We love getting feedback from our members, so when we see interest in a particular sport or activity, we do our best to have it added to the schedule,” said Ed Philipp, CEO of the YMCA.
