The YMCA of Pueblo is a charitable organization, so we make sure we include everyone in our sports activities, regardless of ability to pay.
Sports are naturally fun for children and adults. We are as interested in developing character as we are in developing healthy athletes. Our coaches stress good sportsmanship and skills development over winning. During the season, team members receive equal practice time and will play at least one half of every game. In addition to learning the fundamentals of sports and inclusion in games, your kids will also learn the four core values of the YMCA : caring, honesty, respect and responsibility - winning strategies for in and out of the game! That's what makes the YMCA so much more.
The Y - Everybody plays... everybody wins!
Change lives. Save Lives.
Learn powerful new skills with the YMCA!
The YMCA of Pueblo offers training and certifications for health and safety such as CPR/AED/First Aid. Courses are taught by accredited professionals.
CPR PRO/AED/First Aid
The purpose of the American Red Cross CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers and Health Care Providers course is to teach those with a duty to act (professional rescuers and health care providers) the knowledge and skills needed to respond appropriately to breathing and cardiac emergencies until more advanced medical personnel take over. This includes the use of an automated external defi brillator (AED) to care for a victim experiencing cardiac arrest. To successfully complete the course, you must attend the entire course, participate in all skill sessions and scenarios, demonstrate competency in all required skills and scenarios, and pass the final written exam with a minimum grade of 80 percent. Some skill sessions require strenuous physical activity. Please wear comfortable clothing and avoid wearing dangling jewelry or jewelry with sharp edges. If you have a medical condition or disability or if you have any questions regarding your ability to participate fully in this course, discuss this with your health care provider and the local Red Cross chapter before you start the course. Before attending the fi rst class, please be sure you have read the attached document, Health Precautions and Guidelines During Training. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a Red Cross CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers and Health Care Providers certificate.
The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the
knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing
and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services personnel take over. This is a blended learning course where you will be required to do a large portion of the course online.
Swim 300 yards continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. Tread water for 2 minutes using only the legs. You should place your hands under your armpits.
Complete a timed event within 1 minute, 40 seconds.

¦ Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on your back to return to the starting point with both hands
