Healthy Kids Day

SUMMER STARTS HERE - For Over 30 Years

May 18, 2024 at Highmark Stadium - Join us For a Fun Filled Day

Healthy Kids Day® is the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids and families. YMCAs across the country host free community events aimed to inspire kids to keep their minds and bodies active throughout the summer months. 

All activities are designed to inspire kids to get active while simultaneously teaching families how to develop routines that support mental and physical health at home.  


The vibrant city of Pittsburgh is gearing up for an extraordinary collaboration between the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds professional soccer teams. This dynamic partnership is set to make a significant impact on the community's well-being, particularly during Healthy Kids Day 2024.

Healthy Kids Day is an initiative that aims to promote the health and well-being of children through various activities, educational programs, and community engagement. The joint effort between the YMCA and the Riverhounds adds an exciting sports twist to this annual event, creating a unique blend of fitness, fun, and community involvement.

One of the highlights of this collaboration is the upcoming soccer clinics that will be held around Pittsburgh. These clinics, organized by the Riverhounds professional soccer teams in conjunction with the YMCA, will provide children with the opportunity to learn soccer skills from professional athletes. This not only promotes physical activity but also fosters a sense of community and teamwork.

The partnership emphasizes the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle for children. By combining the YMCA's commitment to community well-being with the athleticism and expertise of the Riverhounds, the initiative seeks to inspire young individuals to embrace sports and recreational activities as part of their daily lives.

Parents and families in Pittsburgh can look forward to a series of engaging events and soccer clinics where their children can interact with professional players, learn new skills, and, most importantly, have fun in a supportive and encouraging environment. The collaboration between the YMCA and the Riverhounds reflects a shared dedication to the overall health and happiness of the community's youth.

As Healthy Kids Day 2024 approaches, the excitement is palpable, and the anticipation for the positive impact of this collaboration on the children of Pittsburgh is high. It is a testament to how sports, community organizations, and local professional teams can join forces to create memorable and health-focused experiences for the next .
