Do you need a place for homeschoolers to engage in physical exercise, learn new skills as well as develop relationships with their peers? The Parkwood YMCA homeschool program includes a variety of youth programming including gymnastics, swimming and other physical exercise activities. Homeschoolers will improve their strength, endurance, coordination, balance, and energy levels.
The Y wants all children to have knowledge and skills necessary to stay healthy and active through their childhood and into adulthood. The H.Y.P.E. Homeschool YMCA Physical Education Program is designed to help your child's strength, increase endurance and energy, build self-esteem, improve coordination, encourage team building, and promote healthy habits.
