All the kids in the yard yell "WEEEEEEE!" for
YMCA Weeball. May 23 is the magic date for this six-week
instructional program for children 4 years through kindergarten.
What participants will take away from this HOME RUN program are the
basic skills necessary to play baseball, including how to throw,
catch, hit and run the bases, along with playing an abbreviated
Mission Impossible, 007 and Capture the Flag are only some of the
scenarios planned for YMCA Paintball. Starting May 16,
the YMCA will offer a two-hour, no-impact paintball program that
teaches the fundamentals of paintball and how paintball markers
work. Participants will work through the process of firing,
maneuvering around obstacles and learning how to move and think as a
TEAM. All equipment is supplied, with safety as our first priority.
There are only two weeks left to take advantage of early YMCA
