Welcome to the

Valley Points
Family YMCA

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.

At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE Y


Thank you to everyone who took part in the Y's Youth Triathlon on Saturday:  the kids, our volunteers, and the families who came out to cheer on the participants. We had a great event, with 65 kids—ranging in age from 7 to 13participate in this inaugural event, and they all did a great job! Click here to see the results for the age groups. Stay tuned for information about next year's event!

What do you get when you combine bowling and the Y? Bowling 4 the Kids! Join us on Saturday, November 5th from 1-4 pm at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell and not only will you have a great time, but you'll also help raise funds to support the Y's scholarship program. Proceeds from this event help ensure that no child, family or adult is turned away because of an inability to pay for programs and services. For more information or to register, download the packet and get started today!

 

Are you familiar with Pickleball?

Pickleball was invented in 1965 and is a combination of tennis, badminton, and ping pong and can be played as doubles or singles. The court is badminton-sized and uses a slightly modified tennis net. The simple rules make it easy for beginners to learn, but for more experienced players it can develop into a fast-paced and competitive game. At the Valley Points Family YMCA, pickleball is a pick-up sport and, between the two Branches, can be played every day.

If you like to read and are a member of the Y, this is the club for you! The book club members select the readings and meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm for discussion at the Kiski Valley Branch. Book lists are selected approximately six months in advance. Join us at the next meeting—October 18; Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow—to get in on the fun!
