Youth Movement

The Y has been the premier destination for aquatics since 1885. With a variety of programs to choose from, we encourage you and your family to get involved in water activities. It’s never too early to start. We begin our programs at 6 months and there’s no age cap, so it’s also never too late to make a splash!

The YMCA offers a host dance programs to keep kids moving, having fun while expressing themselves creatively. Offerings start with toddlers and range to adults.  Our East Hampton, Bay Shore and Huntington branches have something to offer for the dancers in your family, including ballet, tap, jazz, Irish Step, and more!

Sports offering for young people not only keep them healthy, active and fit, but provide a positive environment in which young people can have fun, build friendship and build life skills.  At the Y, we have something for every interest, including swim, basketball, soccer, rock climbing, cycling, race training, and pickleball.  Explore our branch locations for unique offerings and schedules.

The teen years are an optimal time to build healthy habits to last a lifetime.  The YMCA offers teen group fitness classes — such as bootcamp, weight lifting, yoga, cycling and more — to help teens get started on a routine safely and with supervision.  Inquire with the Health and Wellness director at your local branch.
