7th Grade Initative

New Initiative at the Ridgewood Y!

7th Grade Initiative offers a complimentary Ridgewood YMCA membership to 7th graders!  The initiative was conceived  and implemented by the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance to support and encourage teens to maintain and/or adopt healthy lifestyles at an age when they are beginning to make their own choice regarding health and wellness. 

At the Y, seventh graders enjoy access to our Y.  Including our Strength & Conditioning Center, Bolger Fitness Center (after orientation), basketball gym, family swim times, group exercise classes, volunteer opportunities and more. The Y offers a safe place where teens will find opportunities to cultivate values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

We invite all 7th graders in our service area to join the Ridgewood Y. Membership is valid through August 31 to new members or at time of renewal.  Please bring in a report card or class schedule to join us, at the Ridgewood Y!
