YMCAs have played a significant role in the history of sports in America. YMCAs invented basketball, volleyball and racquetball. The Cook County Y offers many year round fitness and sport programs and leagues including volleyball, soccer, gymnastics, competitive swimming, and more.
The Y provides Pick up Basketball every Wednesday night! Open Gym times are available every day for members to practice their shots or play a game with their friends.
Every Monday is open Volleyball night from 6-8pm in the gym. Free to members and $3 for visitors. This is a great chance to meet people while getting some volleyball in. The hillside court will be reserved for adults. The lakeside court welcomes ages 13+. All ability levels are welcome.
Dance is a great way to stay active and express yourself creatively while using your spirit, mind, and body! The Y is excited to have Christine Curtis, Breana Roy, and Lesli Higgins offering dance classes for youth and adults.
An all-ages sport, pickleball combines tennis, badminton, and ping-pong into an exciting, low-impact activity the whole family can enjoy! Nets, paddles, and balls are provided at the Membership Service Desk Y at the Cook County YMCA facility.
