The Y Centre in St Leonards on Sea has provided a base for the Hastings and Rother YMCA for over 50 years.

During that time, we have become a cornerstone of the local community, providing space for local people to meet, make art, take part in sporting activity and come together as parents and families for family parties and other celebrations.

We have also developed a reputation as the home of skating in Hastings and the surrounding area, and are proud to have played host to thousands of skaters, young and old, many of whom still develop their skills on our legendary skating floor.

We are open seven days a week from early in the morning until late at night and run a wide variety of classes, sessions and events.

Our first Side Surf challenge entry is from young Freya. This move is a very tough position to maintain, but I think you'll all agree this girl has bags of skill and is well on her way to nailing this.
Well done and keep up that practice 👌

Challenge time!

This week it's the football trick shot... It doesn't have to be a ball, it could be any object you choose as long as you use your feet and kick it!

Whether it's rolled up socks into a washing machine, or a tennis ball into a bin, the choice is yours! Use your imagination and come up with something unique and skillful.
Send your videos to our Instagram DM @the_y_centre or via email to the_y_centre@mail.com using https://wetransfer.com for larger files 📧

Have fun everyone 😃

The next slalom entry is from Y legend Hadley Bourner.
This guy used to be a big part of our skate crew a few years back, and now he's accepted the challenge to show us he's still got the skills!

Taking time out of his busy day working for the NHS to do this has made my day.

Superb,, thanks Hadley 🙏
