YMCA Approach to Sports:
YMCA Sports featured at Walt Whitman Elementary feature a “games approach” as children learn by playing the game instead of just repeating drills. Playing active games keeps participants excited and motivated, which reduces the likelihood of any behavior problems associated with boredom. Players learn faster and perform better when they have fun! The more fun kids have, the longer they stay active in sports, thus maintain and active lifestyle.
The Fall Schedule is well underway and signups are still happening for Floor Hockey and Volleyball. There’s always plenty to do with the YMCA.
