As a leader in youth development, the YMCA of Greater San Antonio After School Program serves over 3,500 children ages 5-13 on a daily basis providing safe, quality, affordable afterschool care. Schoolage children are welcome to enroll in any of our afterschool sites year-round.

YMCA members and non-members are welcome to enroll.

Enrollment is open to any child, ages 5-13 years old who is a student of the school/district in which the site is located.

  • Registration opens April 20, 2021 for Boerne ISD, New Braunfels ISD, and Schertz Cibolo Universal City ISD.  All other districts will open once we receive confirmation of start dates. When registering you will see the option for this school year and next school year. Please be sure to check your receipt to make sure you are registered for the correct school year.  If you registered incorrectly, please email [email protected] or call 210-924-2277 so we can make the corrections.
