Teen Programs

Having fun at the Y as a teen.

2019 Summer Class Schedule

Raritan Valley YMCA teen programs help youths develop physically for greater fitness or competitiveness, and mentally/emotionally as they become the leaders of the future.

YMCA youth sports, fitness, and enrichment programs offer a simple, safe, non-intimidating way for kids to love learning, being healthy and/or physically active. Classes are non-competitive and presented in a fun and exciting way to maximize learning and interest. Our goal is to create excitement and interest while providing the basic skills so that kids will gain a life-long love of learning, fitness, and physical activity.
