YMCA Online Gym Class
YGym LogoADSB has partnered with the YMCA who have launched YMCA Gym Class, an online platform for educators to deliver virtual physical education programming to their students as a part of their school’s e-learning platform.
 
"The YMCA has an over 100-year tradition of innovative programs and activities that get young people active. We see YMCA Gym Class as an extension of this type of innovation – a virtual gym class in a time of social distancing.” said Tracey Cooke, CEO for the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA.
 
YMCA Gym Class is instructed by a YMCA certified fitness coach and features content based on YMCA Canada's Health & Fitness programs and Canada's Physical Activity Guidelines. With activities designed to complement physical education course curriculum, the YMCA has made this resource available for schools to use for free.  There are also a number of crafts and activities for children that Teachers and Parents might find helpful.
 
For older students the classes that are on YHome and/or YThrive might be enjoyable and more suitable. Gym Y extends the reach to French Immersion and Francophone school communities.
