Teens

We offer a supportive, caring environment for teens with programs that emphasize camaraderie, leadership and physical activity. Our teen leader clubs are an opportunity to build leadership skills and provide community service. In addition, teens can work out in the Freestyle Fitness Zone or fitness center, take teen fitness classes and tryout for the swim team or gymnastics team. Our after school drop in program and Middle School nights provide an opportunity for teens to relax and interact with peers in the teen lounge, game room and our other facilities.

Middle School Nights – 2nd Saturdays

Teen Nights for 6th-8th graders are scheduled from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm on the 2nd Saturday of each month.  Teens need safe places, caring adults and positive activities on Saturday nights. At the Y, middle schoolers can get together with friends and have a good time.  Click here for 2017 schedule
