Log Rolling is Back at the Y!
Come give log rolling a spin with professional log roller Samantha Hadley! This event is open to the public! Non-members are welcome. Fun for all ages!
FALL LOG ROLLING SESSION:
October 3 – November 7
Mondays | 5:30 – 6:15PM OR 6:30 – 7:15PM
Family Members $40 | Adult/Youth Members $50 | Non-Members $60
WHY LOG ROLLING?
Not only does the unique sport of log rolling preserve the rich history of lumberjack sports in North America, but this sport is simply the most fun any age level can have in the water! The continuous reward system of staying on the log longer and longer with every practice leads to a wonderful feeling of self-satisfaction for any new student. The sport of log rolling promotes balance, leg and core strength, and cardiovascular endurance and overall functional coordination.
Suggested Clothing: Swimsuit and/or shorts/spandex.
Register ONLINE, by phone at 749-8020 or in person at the Y Member Service’s Desk!
