Children's Recreation Programmes at Lynfield

Kids recreation programmes for learning, getting active and having fun

If you’re looking for something to occupy the kids in the afternoons during term time, Lynfield Youth & Leisure Centre managed by The Y (formerly known as YMCA) can help. We offer a range of high-quality kids activities, which make our term programmes a great solution for parents.

The kids activities at Lynfield Recreation Centre include basketball & badminton, with a focus on skill development and game play in a fun, non-competitive environment. Our kids recreation programmes are suitable for everyone, from beginners through to intermediate level. The coaches here cater for all skills and abilities, so your children are sure to find something to excite them.

Our kids recreation programmes are lots of fun – you can tell from the smiles and the energy! Did you know that they also contribute to your child’s physical and social development? The Y kids programmes are designed to develop coordination, motor skills, communication and social engagement – all vital to grow happy, healthy kids.
