Fall is fast approaching, and the kiddos are ready to head back to class. From making sure they have the right school supplies to finding enriching ways for your child to spend their time after the bell rings, the YMCA of Greater Charlotte has you covered.
Education and growth don't end when school does! Under the guidance of qualified and caring staff, kids can unwind, get started on homework assignments and participate in imaginative activities created to help them maximize their potential.
Register for Youth Sports
Not only do sports help kids get active, they also provide growth in character! Lessons learned on the field or court will last a lifetime. Kids discover the value of working with a team, get experience overcoming setbacks and learn that hard work pays off when they see improvement in themselves.
Score & Achieve Goals in Soccer
One of the fastest growing sports in the US for kids and the most popular game in the world, soccer combines individual skill with teamwork. The Y offers recreational leagues that teach the fundamentals of the game like passing, possession, defending, shooting and strategy.
Run the Perfect Play in Flag Football
Flag football at the Y is a wonderful chance to play America's favorite game in a low contact, less intense setting. Kids learn the fundamentals of the game, build leadership skills and self-confidence.
The Y offers practice/play schedules for kids 6-years-old and under and recreational leagues for kids 7 and up!
Serve Up Fun in Volleyball
The Y gives kids the chance to bump, set and spike this fall. Trained volunteer coaches teach players of all ability levels how to pass, set, hit, serve and block in an energetic, supportive environment.
Introduce Them to the Arts in Dance
Whether it's ballet, hip hop, jazz, Broadway, tap, cheer or another style of dance, your child can learn to use movement as a form of creative expression.
From preschoolers to teens, the Y has an awesome dance class for every child's personality.
Burn off Excess Energy in Gymnastics
After a long day of school, your child can stretch their legs while they improve their strength, flexibility and agility. The Y has a class for kids of all abilities. Experienced instructors help gymnasts master age-appropriate movements in a safe environment.
Buy School Supplies & More for Less
