We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren’t just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. That’s why you’ll find a range of recreational activities at the Y. With something to offer everyone, there’s no such thing as being too old to get in the game.

YMCA basketball gyms are available for member use during any scheduled Open Gym time.  The Fercho YMCA has two full-sized basketball courts, which also have schedule Adult Member Basketball times for member pick-up games.

Gator Swim Training : Ages 19 & Up

This program is for swimmers ages 19 and over. Participants can be those looking to stay fit or for the athletes who are aggressively seeking to compete in swimming meets or triathlons. Gator coaches will be on deck to improve stroke technique, endurance and speed. Workouts will be written specifically for all levels on the team. If you haven’t swum in a while or if you were never actually part of a team, this will be a great experience for you!
