These 30-minute classes will be taught by YMCA expert coaches and include programs in Sports like parent-child All-Star Kids and Football Rookies; parent-child swim classes as well as preschool and school age aquatics; and in Gymnastics, including Boys Super Heroes. Also in Arts & Enrichment, we are offering sampling classes in Me, Mommy & Music, Junior Chef, and Little Wizards. All in the community are invited to attend and sample a variety of the programs available year-round at the Hockomock Area YMCA’s full facilities in Foxborough, Franklin, and North Attleboro.

The Y is about youth development: we strive to help children and teens reach their full potential by helping them grow—physically, mentally and socially—from young children into engaged, active members of their communities.

“This event is a great way for kids who have never been in the water or in a sports class to get comfortable with the experience and to begin to develop life skills and interests,” says Jim Downs, VP of Operations at the Hockomock Area YMCA. “Or, if your child wants to try a new program, you’ll find dozens of options in a fun, supportive environment,” he adds.

Getting out on a winter afternoon – for a fun YMCA experience – brings huge rewards. Through Y programs, kids have the opportunity to find new talents, try new activities, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories. And, of course, it’s fun too.

“Over the years, thousands of children have learned lifelong skills at the Y and we are proud to be able to continue to make events like this available,” Downs says. “It’s really part of the important role the Y plays in our community.”
