The YMCA South Australia Active Adults program has been named Program of the Year at the 2018 Recreation South Australia awards presentation.
YMCA Active Adults is a membership program offered at all YMCA South Australia managed recreation centres, tailored to improving the fitness, strength and balance of adults aged over 60.
The Active Adults membership offers a compelling set of targeted older adults programs, ranging from Aqua Fitness to yoga and the COTA approved Strength for Life.
Presented in June, YMCA SA General Manager Operations, Andrew Mundy, accepted the award and said the leading not-for-profit had developed the program in response to community needs, after wide consultation with older South Australians.
YMCA Active Adults was launched at a pilot site in 2016 and was then expanded across eight YMCA South Australia managed recreation centres in 2017. The program has experienced an extraordinary 201% growth over the last 12 months.
