Last year YMCA Calgary and the Flames Foundation for Life teamed up to provide free YMCA memberships to all City of Calgary youth registered in Grade 6. The program was a huge success and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be continuing the program for a second straight year!
Participants in the program got to enjoy some great activities and events, including:
- A HUGE end of year party including a YMCA dance/karaoke party
- Meeting the one and only, Harvey the Hound
- Soccer tournaments
- Basketball tournaments
- Lego building events
- Cooking classes
Between our dedicated staff, amazing volunteers and fantastic grade 6 youth, we’re sure that this year’s Calgary Flames Grade 6 YMCA Membership program is going to bigger and better than last year!
Grade 6 Membership Overview
- Free membership for grade 6 school year
- Access to all 5 city-wide YMCA Calgary locations
- Access to no-cost programs such as Adventurers (leadership training including character development, communication, volunteerism, and fundraising) and Active Y Kids (physical activity, nutrition, and goal setting) and Flames Friday & Teen Night activities
- Advanced registration and discounted fees for programs
You might be asking yourself why Grade 6?
We’re doing this because we know how important your kids’ health is and we thought this would be a great way to help grade 6 youth get more active, make some new friends, have a positive place to hang out, and learn some leadership skills too!
How does a Youth get a Grade 6 Membership?
Drop in to any YMCA Calgary location to complete a membership form for your youth (parent/guardian signature, proof of child’s grade required).
When does it start?
Students in grade 6 will be able to get a one year membership valid September 1, 2015 to August 31, 2016. Registration is ongoing so come down to your local YMCA and register your grade 6 youth today!
