Create a Class

You Put Together the Roster, We’ll Run the Program!

In the age of COVID-19, remaining involved in your favorite activities and staying within your own bubble or cohort do not have to be mutually exclusive. We’ve introduced the option to form your own group of participants to Create a Class! Whether it’s students from your child’s school cohort, a family or household group, or neighbor bubble - we’ll work with you to set up a day and time for your group and the program of your choosing.

Create a Class Overview

  • Most Y programs can be adapted to “Create A Class.” Everything from toddler tumbling to teen basketball, youth swim lessons to adult yoga or HIIT, and everything in between!
  • Classes can take place indoors, outdoors, or virtually.
  • Available for all ages & abilities - toddlers through seniors!
  • Scheduling is dependent on space & availability. Create A Class programs are intended to follow dates of the current Y program session.
