After School Recreation

at Bishopdale

Basketball

 
The YMCA invented the game of basketball and consequently it is no surprise that we run a great basketball training and development squads for children.

In terms 2 and 3 we also operate a school based competition league.

Get your child involved and see them develop skills, friendships and a team spirit while also staying fit and healthy.

Gymnastics

 
Based in our large Bishopdale stadium, we have a variety of different gymnastics classes to suit toddlers right through to 14 year olds.

Each child will gain confidence in hand eye coordination, balance, flexibility, strength as well as gymnastics movements and skills.

Our National YMCA skill card allows children to progress from one level to the next at their own pace.

Groovy Movers Dance

 
Our Jazz Hip-Hop class is designed to cater for any level of dance ability for children between the ages of 5-14 years. We want to open up new possibilities for children whilst seeking to instill a sense of enjoyment and self accomplishment within the dancers.

We teach the essential fundamentals of dance where the children will learn full body stretches, combinations and choreography whilst gaining increased self esteem and confidence through mastering new skills.

At the end of term we invite friends and families of the dancers for a performance so the children can present what they have been working on during the term.
