January Programs

Good afternoon southern West Virginians, 
Active SWV will be updating program guidelines going forward. In alignment with the WV Governor postponing youth indoor sports until March 1st, Active SWV will also be postponing any indoor programs through January and February.
Outdoor programs and online classes will continue. Please visit our website Resource Library and monthly website calendar to find ways to safely stay active with your family and co-workers. This is an important time to offer support for mental and physical health.
The Active SWV staff and volunteers look forward to helping you find safe ways to be active and improve the health of our community. 
Stay safe and active!
