The Plymouth Family YMCA is accepting registrations for its instructional clinics. The focus of these programs will be on fun, exercise and social interaction through sports instruction.
Clinics include Preschool Soccer for kids between the ages of 3 and 5; Preschool Basketball for ages 4 and 5; and Youth Basketball for ages 6 and 7.
The programs run the weeks of March 17-April 28. All classes are held in local schools during the week.
For more information, contact the YMCA at (734) 453-2904 or visit www.ymcadetroit.org.
The Plymouth Family YMCA is also excited to introduce Speed and Agility Training. This class will focus on improving your speed (stride length and frequency, starting and stopping ability, sprint form and technique) and agility (the ability to explosively brake, change direction, and accelerate again).
Rarely in team sports do you run in a straight line at a fixed pace for a fixed length of time. This class will improve your movements in any direction at any sport.
It will also improve your foot speed and will increase your strength and power using only safe, body-weight exercises. The classes will consist of both drills to learn new techniques, and various games for the opportunity to put those skills into practice.
It will be taught by an NCAA Division 1 athlete with a degree in Exercise Science and who is great with youth. For more information, contact the YMCA at (734) 453-2904 or visit www.ymcadetroit.org.
The Plymouth Family YMCA is accepting registrations for Spring Co-Ed Soccer and Girls' Volleyball Leagues. Both leagues run from April 19-June 12. There will be one practice and one game each week.
The cost is $71 for program members or $103 for community members. All participants need a YMCA Youth Sports Reversible Jersey (cost: $15). The registration deadline is April 1.
If you are interested in participating or coaching your child's team, please contact the YMCA at (734) 453-2904 or visit www.ymcadetroit.org.
