Basketball

The Y invented the game of basketball and consequently it is no surprise that we run great basketball training and development squads for children.

In terms 2 and 3 we also operate a school-based competition league.

Get your child involved and see them develop skills, friendships and a team spirit while also staying fit and healthy.

Gymnastics

Based in our large Bishopdale stadium, we have a variety of different recreational gymnastics classes to suit school aged children up to 14 years of age.

Each child will gain confidence in hand eye coordination, balance, flexibility, strength as well as gymnastics movements and skills.

These classes are a great introduction to gymnastics, and our skill card allows children to progress from one level to the next at their own pace.

Our fun Hip Hop classes are based upon the joy and fun of dance whilst increasing co-ordination and learning fun dance moves, designed to cater for any level of dance ability.

We focus on teaching the essential fundamentals of dance through a combination of choreography and movement whilst gaining increased self-esteem and confidence.

At the end of term we invite friends and families of the dancers for a short performance so the children can present what they have been working on during the term.
