Kids Programmes at The Y Onehunga

Fostering a love of getting active from a young age

At Onehunga War Memorial Pool & Leisure Centre managed by The Y (formerly known as YMCA), we are passionate about instilling a love of community and recreation in the younger generation.

We have a fantastic after school programme that provides all sorts of fun for primary aged children, with plenty of things to do: swimming, sports, playground activities, arts and crafts and DVDs. With something different each week, there’s no chance that kid will be bored – and you can be sure that they’ll be raving about it all the way home.

There’s also K-Club, our kids’ fitness club – offering a lively way to get into different sports and physical activities – and our swimming lessons, catering to all kinds of different abilities and ages.

After School Care

The Y provides a fun environment and ensures your child leaves safely from school while you manage your other commitments. Our after school care programmes offer a variety of activities including art, crafts, cooking, sports, games and free play. We know kids always come home from school hungry, so we’ll also provide a healthy afternoon tea.
