Homeschool PE at the Waynesboro YMCA

y homeschool fitnessWaynesboro YMCA member Tina Ruszala has been homeschooling her three children for more than six years. As in any homeschool community, the parents involved work together to provide different education and socializing experiences.

“We go to different co-op groups, and the moms are so into the academic side of it, and the socializing part of it, that we kind of forget about the fitness side of it, how we have to stay active and healthy throughout our lives,” said Ruszala, who works with the Waynesboro YMCA to provide a homeschool fitness program.

Class size is limited to 12, so those interested must register at the Y in person at 648 S. Wayne Ave., Waynesboro, by phone at (540) 943-9622.

“This is a great opportunity for kids to get together and socialize, and get the fitness side of it,” Ruszala said.
