The Tennis Club and Soccer Center makes its raison d'?tre known from the get-go. The facility combines four indoor tennis courts and an indoor soccer field with endless hours of instruction and organized league play to help athletes of all ages and ability levels hone their skills. Clinics, private lessons, and semi-private lessons led by USPTA-certified tennis professionals sharpen serves and swings, whereas knowledgeable soccer coaches strengthen teamwork skills with league play. The Center even incorporates a bit of dance into its training during Cardio Tennis workouts, a fun way for members to burn a few calories and perfect their victory pirouette.
The YMCA of Greater Omaha brings people together at 10 locations with character-building programs that strengthen participants' involvement in their community. Adults can get a head start on their New Year's fitness resolutions with body sculpting, Pilates, and other tummy-toning group fitness classes, while kids can expend some energy at a drop-in child-care center that is free while parents work out. YMCA members also enjoy reduced rates on swim lessons and youth sports, as well as free senior programs. All locations except the LaFern Williams Y offer indoor pools for aquatic antics that cannot be properly enjoyed in a bathtub's limited splashing-real estate.
Two-year-olds in HappyFeet soccer training sing “Roll, roll, roll your ball” to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” The program’s graduates, though, often go on to more sophisticated activities—such as collegiate and professional soccer careers and jobs kicking computers that won’t work right. Founded by Andy Barney, the HappyFeet franchise encompasses two programs: one for tots aged 2–6 and Legends soccer for older youths. HappyFeet’s coaches focus on childhood development while hosting onsite classes at preschools. Their curriculum fuses soccer drills with kid-friendly characters such as Gus the Gorilla. Meanwhile, the Legends program takes a more grownup approach, emphasizing the arts of dribbling, scoring, and evading opposing players with deft footwork.
