We've helped thousands of people reduce their risk of health problems related to chronic disease, and we look forward to being your partner in living a health life! Below is an overview of the health and life conditions you may be facing and the Y program we've designed to support you.
Healthy Habits, Healthy Families
The YMCA's Center for Community Impact is committed to helping improve the health of youth in our community. Our programs and partnerships are designed to help youth and families engage in physical activity, learn how to make nutritious food choices, and develop healthy habits for the rest of their lives.
Tacoma Public Schools Elementary Sports Program
The Elementary School Sports Program is made possible through a unique partnership between Tacoma Public Schools, Metro Parks Tacoma, Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound, and the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties. We began offering school-based recreational sports leagues to Tacoma's elementary school students in 2016.
Our leagues focus on the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image, and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others. Parents are encouraged to be more than a spectator, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches.
