Each is just $7 per child. Late-start care begins at 6:30am. Early-out care runs until 5:30pm. Parents of kids not already enrolled in the YWCA Afterschool Program can sign up at drop-off.

Rather than focusing on competition, our primary goal is to help individuals develop self-discipline, become self-confident, and provide effective self-defense training in a family-oriented learning environment. We invite all individuals ages 5 and up to learn Chungdokwan TaeKwonDo, a traditional martial art founded on the tenets of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
Practitioners realize better cardiovascular endurance, improved balance, flexibility, agility, heightened focus, stress relief, emotional balance, and release of endorphins. Our program has the only instructor team in the Gateway area certified by the ACTA, with Black Belts from 8th Degree to 3rd Degree.
Members $15/month; Community $20/month. Fees are payable to the Clinton YWCA TaeKwonDo Club.
