The Fall 2 schedule includes a variety of enriching program opportunities to meet the varying needs of our community’s youth, especially during this season’s challenging circumstances. Small indoor studio youth classes, private lessons and custom youth pod offerings are available for the School of Performing Arts (SOPA), Sports skill development, Gymnastics, Y Ninja Gym and more.  

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

The Madison Area YMCA has been successful in developing and administering safety procedures for Summer and Fall 1 Sessions that support the health and well-being of our participants. Senior Program Director Kim Buccheri said, “A new offering of pod classes that launched during our Fall 1 program session was an extension of these efforts. Pods are intended to provide ultimate flexibility in creating a SOPA, Sports, Gymnastics or Y Ninja Gym class for a self-contained group of family and friends.” Following recommendations from the Madison Department of Health and the CDC, we provide a safe and healthy experience for all participants. Visit for more information.
