A long time ago, in a gym far, far away…
A NEW PROGRAM
It is a period of training on their own.
Many youth, trying hard
to gain sport skills, play in the gym
getting ready to do battle
against a worthy opponent.
During the battle, the opponents
have managed to outplay
the youth and seem to have
an ultimate weapon, STRUCTURED
TRAINING, a valuable
addition giving them the power
to defeat many foes.
Persuaded by the desire to
do their best, the youth
look to the Saddletowne
YMCA to better their skills,
within the sports of soccer
and basketball, and restore
balance in the gym….
We have an exciting new opportunity coming to the Saddletowne YMCA!
This summer at the YMCA we are offering Sport Development Camps in basketball and soccer for youth between the ages of 10-15 years! Camps run Monday to Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm.
Get an introduction to disciplined training, by building, developing and refining sport-specific skills with the help of a coach. This week-long sport development camp focusses on personal and group growth, and applies learning in a variety of fun and exciting environments. Through fitness activities, skill development, cross-training and games, campers will build their expertise. Fair play is important when developing a love of the game!
Read more information on our YMCA Sport Development Camps in the 2015 Spring/Summer Day Camp Guide. Pick your week, and choose your sport. We are offing both basketball and soccer options throughout the month of July.
The registration deadline is fast approaching.

Let us further develop a love of the game.
Swimming has always been one of my favourite things to do during the summer months and it isn’t often I have the opportunity to go swimming during the winter. Recently, however, I had the opportunity to expand upon my role as the YMCA Childcare Administrator by participating in recreational swim time with the adventurous children of the Saddletowne Child Development Centre. I had such a great time experiencing how the children and staff interacted with one another in the playful and exciting pool environment.
When people imagine young children in the pool they can easily envision a formal lesson or playful splashing fun. What I saw was a wonderful combination of children having fun while also having an educational experience. Children encouraged each other to try new things such as jumping off the ledge into the water or using the slide to enter the pool. Some children were a bit timid but, with encouragement and support from their teachers and friends, everyone either took the leap or slide. And, most importantly, everyone had a great time and experienced a true sense of accomplishment.
What I found most interesting during my time in the pool was how the caregivers blended play with the teaching of water safety habits – walk on the pool deck to avoid injury, jump into the pool feet first, sit on your bottom to use the slide and tips for floating while wearing a life jacket. All of this was accomplished with gentle reminders inserted at just the right moment during activity time.
I really enjoyed making some new friends and look forward to the next time an opportunity presents itself for me to join one of our childcare groups on a play-filled adventure.
YMCA Calgary currently operates three licensed childcare centres. Days are filled with intentional play-based activities that provide for developmentally appropriate learning opportunities. Recreational swim time is one way we support young children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
Camp Chief Hector YMCA offers a weekend getaway for the entire family during the spring and fall. There are a variety of activities to choose from to create a unique outdoor experience. Participants can try things like horseback riding, hikes, canoeing, high ropes, group games, arts and crafts, climbing tower and evening campfires.
