About our Youth Wellness Programs

The MetroWest YMCA offers health and well-being classes for youth and teens ages 6-16. Our programs help youth to develop healthy exercise and wellness habits that will help them maintain a healthier lifestyle as they grow.   Our programs promote healthy lifestyles and we encourage the youth to share their experiences with their families.  Youth wellness classes use many areas of our Y, including the Youth & Family Interactive Gym, our Aerobics room, gymnasium and back fields when weather permits.

Classes available  

Each program session we offer a few new and exciting health and wellness classes for youth. Please see the PDF of Youth classes for current session times.
