“May the Fourth” Be With You!

 

A long time ago, in a gym far, far away…

 

SPORT CAMPS

Episode I
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.

Call 403-237-2393 or register online today!

Let us further develop a love of the game.


The Crux of Your Workout Routine

I am a rock climber.  I guess that kind of makes sense as I look after the Wall Climbing Programs at the Saddletowne YMCA.  But that is away from my point…

UntitledWhen rock climbing, there comes a point in the climb that is especially difficult.  This is either physically or mentally difficult, and takes the most amount of effort to overcome.  There are times when it feels impossible to make it beyond that point, but all that is usually needed is a step back and change of pace.  This difficult point in rock climbing is known as the “crux”.

Working out, staying fit and wellness routines have this crux in them as well.  It may be known by another name: the rut, the plateau, the stall, the trough…just to name a few.  There comes a time when a change is needed.  We challenge you to spring-clean your time here at the YMCA and try something new!

Throughout the month of May, pick up a passport from member services and do some travelling.  Explore everything that we have to offer and add some excitement.  Get a grip, get your feet off the ground, get your feet wet, get in the game, get your groove on…get over that crux!  Once you complete your passport, return it to member services for 2 guest passes and a ballot for a draw for a 1 month buddy pass.  The program board will be passport central, with information on all of our exciting changes of pace.

From someone who climbs, there are many ways to stay fit on the climbing wall, challenging both your body and your mind.  Be it climbing to the top, or just staying down nice and low, I always can get a workout in.  The best part is that it doesn’t feel like one, but the next day, I can feel it in my arms, legs and core muscles.  When I am stuck at a crux, I go for a climb and can then literally reach new heights!

The challenge is on, talk to member services and get started on overcoming your crux today!
