The Y never turns anybody away. We're a non-profit agency devoted to helping the men, women, and children of Greenwood County learn and grow.
Our philosophy is to develop self-esteem and build skills that are important for life-long fitness in a fun environment. We choose to make a positive difference in the lives of children, teaching them to associate fitness and FUN and creating success for kids focusing on what each child needs to learn, not what everybody else is learning.
Our classes will help your child learn social skills like following directions and taking turns that will enable him or her to feel happy in group situations. Classes are designed to develop balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and self-esteem through movement education and exercise. Students are introduced to many areas of skill development using both gross and fine motor skills by using repetition to master specific goals for growing youngsters. These classes will utilize the floor, balance beam, bars, trampoline and other preschool specific equipment to enhance your child’s gymnastics experience.
