Coordinated Approach to Child Development (CATCH)
The YMCA is dedicated to fighting Childhood Obesity and promoting healthy lifestyles. In order to better achieve this goal, we are using a curriculum called CATCH Kids Club. CATCH is a physical activity and nutrition education program designed for elementary and middle school aged children (grades K - 8) in an after-school/summer setting.
