Child and Youth Online Programs

YMCA Kid Fit Online

Many YMCA Members are familiar with our YMCA Kid Fit Programs.

These programs are designed for children and youth from ages 3 to 12 years. They provide opportunities for fun, social engagement, and include activities that develop physical literacy. You may recall that we offered three different streams within our YMCA Kid Fit Programs: YMCA Kid Fit Cardio, YMCA Kid Fit Yoga and YMCA Kid Fit GameOn.

As the pandemic continues, we are delighted to share that we are continuing the ONLINE version of our popular YMCA Kid Fit program. Registrations open!

YMCA Kid Fit Online takes the best of all of our previous activity streams and combines them in a 30 or 45 minute class. Each class is action-packed and will include a mix of Cardio, Yoga and GameOn activities.

  • Dates: May 2-29

Program Information

This circuit-based program focuses on cardiovascular endurance and strength. Obstacle courses allow children to engage in activities that help improve their hearts and lungs. These fun circuits enhance fundamental movement skills and improve stamina.

In a setting where play is encouraged, YMCA Kidfit Cardio sets the tone for an active, healthy lifestyle.

With a focus on strength, endurance and flexibility, this program enhances physical literacy; increasing body awareness, balance, coordination, and concentration. Incorporating music and stories sparks imagination.

YMCA Kidfit Yoga helps increase self-awareness, body control, and boost self-esteem.

YMCA Kidfit GameOn focuses on coordination, movement skills, and object control. These age-appropriate games with aims, teach children and youth how to handle balls, pucks, sticks, and racquets while staying active with fun individual and team-based activities.
