Active Older Adults

Older adult wellness programming is one of the fastest growing areas especially in aquatics, fitness, and strength training. These programs will help older adults maintain independent healthy lifestyles. Our AOA programs (age 50 & older) will help you not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually. Come visit us and join in the fun!

Functional Strength Balance & Flexibility

Strength, balance and flexibility are essential in maintaining a comfortable, independent life. This class will provide you with the tools necessary to improve your daily life in these areas including coordination, posture and range of motion.

Mon/Wed 9:30–10:15am, Free for members!

Y Wellness Walkers

You can walk your way to fitness! The benefits of regular brisk walking include reaching or maintaining a healthy weight, strengthening your bones and reducing the risk of or managing a number of conditions, such as high blood pressure. Join us weekly for a casual, no pressure stroll. During the winter, members are invited to walk inside on the treadmills or the perimeter of the gym. As weather permits, walkers will meet in the lobby and venture onto the Erie Lackawanna Trail.

Mon/Thur 10:30-11:15am, Free for everyone. Members only allowed to use YMCA facilities.

Adult Sports

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.

Youth Sports

When kids play Y-Sports, they develop more than skills—they develop character. Instructors and coaches—often volunteers, including many parents—model fairness and hard work while emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, and developing good values in our non-competitive programs. Our volunteer coaches recognize achievements large and small and understand that winning is not just about the score. By playing sports, kids and their families feel a sense of belonging that comes from a community gathering together to cheer on their team. Everyone plays, everyone wins!
