One hour sessions are held once a week for 9 weeks. With Itty Bitty Soccer children focus on soccer skills that they can put to use on a team as they grow into team sports.

These instructor led classes are non-competitive. Activities focus on motor skills development, sports skills, teamwork, fair play and sportsmanship.  Parent participation is encouraged! Itty Bitty sports meets on Saturdays at 9:00am. Itty Bitty Soccer also meets on Saturdays, at 10:15am.

Enshin Karate

Enshin Karate is a practical system of empty-handed self-defense based on a strategy of circular movement allowing you to use your opponent's power and momentum against them. Training in Enshin Karate builds spiritual awareness, mental alertness, a sense of confidence and provides resources for meeting the challenges encountered in life. Classes are offered on Mondays at 6:30pm, Thursdays at 6:30pm and Saturdays at 11:30am. $45 per month grants you access to unlimited classes or you can pay $10 per class.

Stop by to meet the instructor, try the class and learn more about the Enshin style.  First class is always free!

YMCA Gymnastics
