Family YMCA of Black Hawk County


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

Taekwondo 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 Taekwondo is a year-round activity, it is a great aerobic exercise. A large benefit of being in Taekwondo is that it is one of the few activities that all family members can participate in. All Taekwondo participants must be five years old and up. This sport meets on Tuesday and Thursdays from 5:30 – 7 pm.


Anyone interested in joining our Taekwondo program must either be a Full YMCA Member (monthly fee) or a Program Member (one-time yearly fee). Program Members are only allowed to participate in our programs, and won’t be allowed access to our full facility.

Adult Rates:

  • Member Monthly Rate: $20
  • Program Member Monthly Rate: $35

Youth Rates:

  • Member Monthly Rate: $20

If 2+ youth are registering for Taekwondo from the same family, the second youth rates are as follows:

  • Program Member Monthly Rate: $32

Youth Wellness Orientations

Youth ages 12-15 who want to use the fitness center area MUST complete this orientation. This one-session program provides information on cardiovascular exercise, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility. Participants will learn general safety guidelines, proper gym etiquette as well as how to use the cardio and strength training equipment. After successful completion of the program, youth will be allowed to work out in the fitness center area without adult supervision. Sign up at the Welcome Center Desk. This orientation is for members only.

Youth Personal Training (Ages 10-17)

Youth Personal Training allows youth to train in a safe environment with a YMCA personal trainer who can help them learn age-appropriate exercises, improve their general fitness and/or sport-specific skills, and help them achieve their fitness goals. All youth sessions are one-on-one and are 30 minutes in duration.
