Adult Recreation is a fun and social way of being active.

The YMCA aims to improve the community’s health and well-being by providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce risk for disease and help others reclaim their health.

This June, the Harrison Family YMCA is providing not just fun kid-friendly activities, but tons of healthy living challenges and programs to keep adults active, engaged and having fun as well.

Anyone interested in basketball or just a good game with friendly competition should consider registering for the YMCA Summer Adult Recreational Basketball League. This league is for ages 18 and up and is open to YMCA members and community members.

You can sign up as an individual and the YMCA will place you on a team, or you can grab a group of good friends or co-workers and register as a team together. Each team must have at least five players. Registration closes June 30 and the season will begin on July 14. Games will be played at the YMCA on Sundays until Aug. 11. There will also be a playoff game at the closing of the season with a trophy, cool T-shirts and bragging rights as the winning team’s prize.

To register, please harrisonfamilyY.org or register at the YMCA on 1000 Independence Drive.

June is also filled with awesome activities for YMCA members to keep them inspired throughout the summer. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to spend your summer feeling fabulous and part of a community. Joining the YMCA as a member means that you can enjoy access to hundreds of group exercise classes, fun fitness challenges throughout the year, updated equipment, as well as giving and volunteer opportunities and atmosphere that is welcoming and encourages community involvement and togetherness. All of those paired together create the healthy and engaging culture that we wish for our community at all times.

Some of the YMCA’s summer adult activities are:

■ Member-get-a-Member Referral Program: As a current member when you refer a friend you both will win.

■ First Saturday PB&J Days: Members can bring a friend for free the first Saturday of every month — guests, please bring photo I.D.

■ 100 Class Pass Challenge: Take 100 group or water fitness classes to earn a free month of membership.

■ Sweaty Seflies: After you complete a class in June, take a selfie with your instructor and share on social media to win prizes. #YSweatySelfies.

■ Togetherhood: Volunteer your time together with fun, rewarding community projects.
