YOUTH PROGRAMS

LEARN & GROW TOGETHER

We offer amenities and programming for all ages that are designed to keep your family active, social and in touch with a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle.

Newtown Athletic Club’s children’s fitness classes are designed to welcome children ages 1-12 to a fun and enriching environment to explore their new and existing interests.

With a dedicated team of professionals and youth specific complex, we offer our littlest community members the appropriate spaces to pursue their passions in kids fitness, dance, gymnastics, yoga, cooking and science exploration.

Kids Fitness operates drop-in style with a reservation required, via the NAC app. Drop-in classes will be unlimited to all Family Memberships.

Classes are offered Monday – Thursday mornings & nights, and Saturday mornings. The class reservation period will open every Sunday for the upcoming week.

You can find the Youth Programs Schedule under the “Youth Schedule” tile on the app. Make sure that Youth Programs are selected at the top, not Group Ex.

How Kids Fitness Classes Work

Kids Fitness operates drop-in style, reservation required, via the NAC app. The class reservation period will open every Sunday for the upcoming week.

Parents can choose to either register themselves for their child’s class(es) to reserve the spot, or can choose to create the child his/her own account for the NAC app. This works just like Group Ex.

Parents cannot register themselves twice for a class, so if a member wishes to have multiple children in one class, an account for a child will have to be created. If a member wishes to have an account created for their child, they can visit the Programs Desk, or call the desk at 215-968-0600 ext 112.

Classes are offered Monday – Thursday mornings & nights, and Saturday mornings.

The class reservation period will open every Sunday for the upcoming week.

If you are to join the waitlist of a class, once a spot opens up everyone on the waitlist will be notified.

If you cancel within 24 hours or less, you will be charged a $15 cancellation fee.

gymnastics programs

Class Types

Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs incorporating strength, speed, flexibility, balance, coordination, power, endurance and discipline.

Shy or bold, children benefit from beginning their own practice and learning how to move their bodies.

Whether they choose to do recreational gymnastics or join our non-competitive exhibition team, the skills and dedication learned from gymnastics will benefit a child’s overall development.

While recreational classes are fitting for anyone, the exhibition team requires more practice hours and year-round commitment.

Creative classes will challenge and inspire your children. Each recreational program encourages your child to make happy memories with like-minded peers.

Kids fitness, known as “KidFit,” classes range from sports like soccer, basketball and football, to other fitness options like dance, Zumba and yoga.

We encourage kids to be unique and lead by example in classes like “Bon-Appefit,” where children will learn about the nutrition plate and how healthy foods will fuel their body. They will create, prepare and sample nutrition food choices.

Studies find that dancing comes naturally to infants. To the young child, verbal language and movement are entwined. Children develop enhanced sensory awareness, cognition and consciousness through dance and movement.

Our recreational dance classes typically run in 11-week sessions and serve as a general introduction into the dance class setting. These dance classes range from mommy-and-me to more independent settings.

Our studio dance classes are organized as a typical dance studio season, beginning in September and concluding with a recital in May. These classes begin at age 3, and ultimately require a consistent, full-year commitment from those who wish to participate in the recital or wish for a steadier development.
