Sports & Play
Team sports at the Y build character and self-esteem. Participants cultivate values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Kids will not only learn the fundamentals and how to work together on a team, but also who they are and what they can achieve.
Healthy Kids Day, April 24 10am-1pm
We’re hosting our annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 24, 10am-1pm at the Valley Y, at the Holy Rosary Church, 10 Father Salemi Drive in Ansonia. We’d like to encourage families to take a moment to help kids be kids.
While the in-person, Y Member event will feature physically distanced activities and be in accordance with CDC and State and our Local Health Department recommendations, the Y aims to provide a carefree morning for children, celebrating what makes a kid, a healthy kid.
The events will feature activities such as games, a scavenger hunt, kid relatable exercises, relay races and Safety Around Water demonstrations with lots of fun to motivate and teach families how to develop and maintain healthy routines at home.
Share in the fun – we are also holding a sock drive to help children in our local shelter. Please bring a pair of new socks to donate!
Please register in advance to attend.

Y Leaders Club
Calling all Milford and Valley teenagers! Virtual Meetings on Wednesdays at 6:150pm on Zoom.
Leaders Club provides high school students with extensive leadership training, offering opportunities for service to the YMCA and the community. Leaders Club also serves as a recruiting program for future Y professionals! We are here to develop leaders, fostering with them a culture of service in addition to knowledge and training that will help them better serve others and shape a healthy and productive life for themselves. Leaders Club meets once a week virtually, until the time we can meet in person. Leaders Club provides a safe, genuine place for high schoolers and helps direct their energy to positive outcomes.
If you are interested in this great program please contact Operations Director Ryan Leworthy at the Valley YMCA at email@example.com or Nicole Servas, Operations Director at the Woodruff Family YMCA at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you the log on details for the Virtual Meetings.
