Youth Programs


Aikido is a modern Japanese martial arts training that focuses on the power of body movements and momentum. Rather than punches and kicks, students learn blocking, rolling, locking, and throwing movements to control the force of an opponent. It’s a great way for children and teens to gain confidence, practice focus and concentration, and learn non-violent strategies for self-defense.

Knowing how to swim is an essential safety skill for kids of all ages, especially with all the lakes around here. It’s never too early to start—we offer classes for babies and toddlers, including parent-child classes so your child can learn the fundamentals in a comforting environment. Group swim classes are available in six levels, ranging from introductory, fundamental, and stroke development to refinement and fitness swimming. Private and semi-private lessons are another convenient option for children of all ages. There are also lifeguard training classes availalble to participants that are age 15 and older and meet specific swimming requirements. Interested in training to be a lifeguard or water safety instructor?
