It’s never too early to begin forging healthy lifetime habits. At the Attleboro Y, we believe it’s our duty to work with local youth, families, and schools to bring about a healthier future for the young people in our community. The Y’s Youth Wellness programs encourage kids to make healthier choices about what they eat, what they do, and how they can live to their best potential.
Youth & Teen Fitness Programs – Fall 2017
Youth Wellness Center Orientation
Youth Members who would like to use the strength and cardio equipment need to make an appointment for an orientation with the Health and Wellness staff. The orientation will teach youth members how to safely and efficiently use the equipment, and instruct them about general Wellness Center rules and etiquette. More than one appointment may be necessary depending on the youth member’s needs and understanding. Once training is completed, an access pass will be given. Children who are 11 or younger must continue to workout alongside a parent or guardian.
To schedule a Youth Orientation, contact Cyndee Goodinson-Lindsey.
