Be Active. Have Fun! 

Positive, fun activities that build physical and social skills that encourage a lifetime appreciation for active living are at the heart of our Y. We are proud to serve our community with programming at Downtown Oakland. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to teamwork and sporting behavior, participating in sports at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
