You are invited to bring your family to the YMCA of Saskatoon Sundays for Family Thrive Time.
Family Thrive Time is free and is sponsored by RBC, and provides an opportunity for families to take part in a variety of fun activities in the gym and pool, while learning new skills.
The event takes place every Sunday at the YMCA of Saskatoon with Family Swim from 10:30 am to Noon, Gym time from Noon to 2:45 pm, and another Family Swim from 3:30-4:15 pm.
The pool has inflatable and foam toys, as well as a waterslide, and the gym offers space for floor hockey, basketball, a game of catch or badminton, as well as an inflatable castle for younger kids.
So come on down the YMCA, and get active with your family!
Take the Challenge!

Program offers support to parents, families
The YMCA of Saskatoon and Family Service Saskatoon have partnered to provide free opportunites for parents and children through the Healthy Parents, Healthy Families project.
This fall two parenting support groups will be offered – Positive Discipline for Everyday Parenting and The Re:Membering Fatherhood Program. The sessions will be led by Family Service Saskatoon facilitators. YMCA staff will provide free child-minding for the educational portion of each session as well. After each session, parents will join their children and have opportunities to take part in family activities in the gym, classroom and in the pool.
This program is possible thanks to a Saskatoon Community Foundation 2016 Quality of Life grant, which includes support from the John Partington Loved Kids Fund.
The goals are to:
- create opportunities for parents and children to interact and play together
- provide an opportunity for parents to express their needs in relation to parent support
- provide an environment where parents can explore parenting practices
- increase the number of opportuntiies for parents and children to connect in fun and healthy ways.
Besides taking part in the educational sessions, participants in both programs will receive full YMCA family memberships and will be able to enjoy the benefits of spending leisure time together, pursuing personal physical activity, and learning new skills.
