The Glacial Community YMCA has several sports to choose from for adults. Basketball, pickleball, and racquetball are a few that we offer and recreational groups are always forming.

YMCA sports is the perfect opportunity for adults to be active and social in a fun, supportive environment. It’s a great way to reconnect with your favorite sport, to improve your skills, and to challenge and test your limits whether on the court or playing field. For many participants, these activities provide the foundation for an active lifestyle and rewarding relationships, while serving to energize and restore our sense of well-being.
