Superheros in ActionAvengers Assemble: the costumes aren’t necessary, but “Super Heroes” ages 3 to 6 are invited to learn teamwork and more, in a fun-packed class presented by the Community YMCA. (Halloween file photos by John T. Ward and Peter Lindner)

[CORRECTION: The original version of this post incorrectly attributed these programs to Red Bank’s Parks & Recs Department. Obviously, they’re Community YMCA events. We apologize for the error.]

Having fun, while learning hands-on skills, valuable lessons and fitness fundamentals is the order of the day, as Red Bank’s Community YMCA inaugurates a new slate of fall classes for kids between the ages of 3 and 13.

It’s a schedule that kicks off right now with an all new activity aimed at young Super Heroes in Action ages 3 to 6. While it’s not necessary to dress in capes, cowls and costumes, budding heroes can take the opportunity to “soar, jump and run in this fun, action-packed class based on character development, team work and more.” Classes are held twice weekly; Tuesdays at 9:30 am and Thursdays at 3:30 pm.
