It All Happens at the Y
ADULT SPORTS & RECREATION
We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren’t just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. That’s why you’ll find a range of recreational activities at the Y. With something to offer everyone, there’s no such thing as being too old to get in the game.
Check out our current Program Guide for class dates and times.
Noon Basketball-Spring Session Only
Need to take a break from your grueling work day? Why not drop into the YMCA and play a little basketball with colleagues and others who enjoy the game and exercise?
Pickleball – Spring Session only
Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-pasted, competitive game for experienced players.
The Tri-Cities Family YMCA has a racquetball court. Please reserve a court up to 24 hours in advance at the Welcome Center.
Beginners will learn basic techniques, forms and stances. They will learn application of techniques integrated with basic self defense. They will learn breathing techniques, mental focus and physical conditioning. Advanced students will learn advanced kicks and hand techniques as well as advanced forms. Students will learn self defense against multiple and armed assailants. Students will also learn to control an aggressor with joint locks, pressure points, and restraint techniques.
**Parents can take the adult class—held at the same time and room as the youth class, then actively participate with their child! A great way to reinforce the skills learned and spend quality time together**
Adult Outdoor Soccer League
During the summer months, the Tri-Cities Family YMCA offers a fun and competitive outdoor soccer league to both members and nonmembers. Participants must be at least 30 years old. Program is divided up into two 5-week sessions. Games are played at Coast Guard Park in a 7 vs. 7 format. Recreational and competitive leagues are available based on registration.
Team fee: $380 per season; fee must be paid in full by the Friday before the start of each season so that the game schedules may be completed.
