GO APE (Adaptive Physical Education)

At the Y, all people deserve to learn, grow, and thrive. In GO APE (Adaptive Physical Exercise), children with special needs or disabilities have the opportunity to be physically active in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment. This is a fantastic program for kids with special needs and siblings have fun too!
