For swimmers interested in House Team or Piranha swimming, there will be a stroke evaluation clinic to determine eligibility for the Piranhas or House Team. Gymnastics classes are offered for infants (mommy and me) through middle school age, including a boy’s power tumbling class. A range of sports are offered for children this fall including volleyball for grades 6-8, basketball for Kindergarten through eighth-graders, soccer for children Pre-K through eighth grade, flag football for grades 4-8 and baseball for 9 to 12-year-olds. Other programs open this fall for children include a Teen Fitness series of yoga, Zumba and spin classes for 12 to 18-year-olds, sports conditioning and team athletic training, as well as classes on the Y’s rock climbing wall. Special needs classes offered include a number of swimming, sports, fitness and enrichment classes for all ages, as well as the Aquatic Exercise water therapy program.
The fall program session runs from Aug. 31 to Nov. 22. Fall program listings and information are at www.darien-ymca.org.
The Darien Y offers program registration both online, and through their mobile app “The HUB: Mobile Self-Service Portal,” which can be downloaded and used on iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Search “HUB YMCA” through either the App Store or through Google Play. Once downloaded, click “enroll” to browse available programs and classes, and add them to the shopping cart to register. When the programs are in the shopping cart there are 20 minutes to pay for them; the cart must be fully paid to reserve a spot in the program.
