BLACK HAWK COUNTY YMCA

YOUTH SPORTS

At the Y, our staff, coaches and volunteers all share a vision of helping all youth reach their full potential in life. We aim to create a healthy outlet for children to build character, gain new skills, develop a sense of team and connect with positive role models through youth sports. We also make sure kids can just be kids — playing, learning and growing.

Cedar Valley Taekwondo

Tae kwon do is an excellent way for youth to develop balance, coordination, self-discipline and respect. Martial Arts also helps adults and children improve self-control, self-confidence, flexibility, weight control and physical fitness. Since tae kwon do is a year-round activity, it is a great aerobic exercise. A large benefit of being in tae kwon do is that it is one of the few activities that all family members can participate in.
