Youth/Teens

Two young girls reading with a YMCA staff member.We know that the Y is the starting point for many kids and teens to learn about becoming and staying active while developing lifelong healthy habits.   Before & After School Care kids gain confidence and really see what they can achieve when they participate in programs such as Youth Basketball League, Building Creative Muscles, Youth Run Club, and the Teen Center.

Before & After School Care- The Y’s before- and after-school program makes sure your child’s learning doesn’t start and stop with the sound of the school bell.

Recreation- Youth learn new skills, make new friends, and develop essential character traits when participating in our Youth Recreation programs. Programs such as the Youth Run Club and Discovery Club improves self-confidence, promotes diversity, increases self-esteem, and improves physical condition.

Summer Day Camp- Kids have the opportunity to explore nature, find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too.

At the Sewickley Valley YMCA we have more than 100 years of experience in providing a safe, thriving environment for young people to explore personal interests, build self-esteem, develop interpersonal skills, discover the creativity and health benefits of the outdoors, and make lasting friendships and memories.  View our Summer Day Camp brochure here.

Sports – From soccer and flag football to basketball and gymnastics, there’s sure to be a YMCA youth sports program your child will enjoy. Our youth sports leagues and clinics are geared for all ages and ability levels, with the focus on fun, skill development and character-building.

Swim Lessons- Kids learn to swim and build relationships. Sessions include: rescue skills, stroke development, water safety, personal development and fun games.

Oasis Teen Center- The Y welcomes middle and high school students from any district to stop by and socialize, do homework, participate in activities, enjoy healthy foods, and have access to pool, gyms, and outdoor facilities with adult supervision.
