Traverse City Events: The Grand Traverse Bay YMCA is offering one more way for kids to get outside and soak up the Northern Michigan summer. Enroll children in one of two programs, the "Y Kinderkickers" or the "Y Beach Volleyball Skills". Both sessions begin on Wednesday, June 27, and run for 6 weeks. They will be held at the YMCA Main Facility at 3000 Racquet Club Drive; registration for YMCA members is $25, $60 for non members. The registration deadline is June 26.
The Y Kinderkickers
For 3-5 year olds, from 4p.m.-4:45 p.m.
Children learn the basics of soccer in a non-competative, fun, and supporting atmosphere where safety and teamwork are paramount. The class will meet outdoors unless inclement weather forces a move inside. Parents are also encouraged to get involved in class exercises!
Y Beach Volleyball Skills
For youth in grades 5-7
Practices will include training in ball control, team strategy, team play, and a strong emphasis on fundamental skills, strength, and conditioning.
