Preschool Sports of all Sorts
is a program designed to teach children age 4 through
kindergarten the various skills necessary to play soccer,
basketball, baseball and football. Join Nate Bossingham, Y program
director, as he helps the children learn about sports, but also
sportsmanship and character, all while having fun. Stop by the Y
office to sign up your child for a life of fun and sports.
The Y will host its third annual Y Run on Sept. 27 at 8:30
a.m. This event includes a 5K run and a one-mile run-walk. The event
begins on the Hamilton side of the Logan County Safety Complex. The
first 40 registrants will receive Y Run shirts, and awards will be
given to top male and female finishers in each age division. Snacks
and drinks will be provided. Proceeds from the Y Run go to the YMCA
Scholarship Fund, which ensures that no family is turned away from
YMCA programming due to financial restraints.
