Winter/Spring Challenger Programs

The YMCA Challenger program is gearing up for Winter/Spring sports.  Challenger athletics are for anyone with a disability from ages 3-30; they also offer a variety of meet-ups for teens and older children.  We’re getting ready to try our very first Challenger program this Spring (soccer!!)–who knows, we might see you there!
