How many students can enroll in Encore! programs?
Enrollment maximums vary across enrichment activities, athletics, and aftercare. Registration is accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. If an activity is full, contact Encore! Coordinator Darcy McDonnell at to join the waiting list. This helps us understand interest levels for future planning, and you will be contacted if a spot opens up.

Where do Encore! programs take place?
Enrichment activities and aftercare take place in the Activity Center and outdoor play spaces. Athletics take place on the Blakeney campus or at local YMCA locations with the option for bus transportation to practices.

Where and when should I pick up my child from Encore! programs?
Dismissal for aftercare, enrichment and athletic clubs takes place at the front car line at 4:30 and 5:30pm. Dismissal for other athletics takes place at the Morrison YMCA at 6:00pm.

If you arrive early to pick up your child, you are welcome to call or text the Encore! phone at (980) 475-0197.
