Group Exercise Classes

We offer a variety of family friendly classes, which are noted on the online group exercise class schedule with a "family" icon. Beyond these specific classes, youth ages 13 and older are welcome to attend all group exercise classes (unless noted otherwise in the class description) after completing a LAUNCH wellness coaching session at the Y. Youth ages 10-12 can attend group exercise classes that don't use equipment with a parent/guardian, after completing a LAUNCH wellness coaching session. These are also noted on the group exercise schedule
 

Aquatics

Our priority is youth safety. We require youth ages 17 and younger to attend an aquatics-specific LAUNCH wellness coaching session. The same session is recommended for anyone 18 and above, but not required. Youth ages 14 and older may use sauna, steam rooms, whirlpool, hot tubs and spas at the Y without a parent or guardian.

  • Youth ages 13 and younger are not permitted to use a sauna/ steam room.
  • Children ages 5–13 must be accompanied in the whirlpool/hot tub/spa by a parent/guardian.
  • Children ages 4 and younger are not permitted to use a whirpool/hot tub/spa.;

Sports/Gym

Youth ages 13 and older may use the basketball courts or participate in any sports/open gym activity unless otherwise designated. Youth ages 12 and younger may participant in free/open/family gym with a parent/guardian present.
