Youth & Teen Fitness

Start a fun and healthy lifestyle with us at the JCC

Before they become great athletes, they have to start somewhere. Children need to learn the basics, develop skills and practice fundamentals. The best place for them to start is right here at the York JCC.

Children thrive in our classes taught by patient and supportive instructors knowledgeable in child development. We are your child’s first positive experience with fitness!

The JCC is your place to enjoy both organized and recreational sports. These classes present healthy exercise, discipline, team spirit, positive self esteem, competition and a chance to interact with peers. As a SPARK agency, our programs are designed to provide lots of activity, while being academically integrated. We encourage healthy lifestyles and focus on improving motor skills and movement knowledge, and social and personal skills.

Fitness and Fun … It all starts here at the JCC!
