* At present, the Berkeley YMCA is the only gym with a BHS PE waiver. If your student is participating in a BHS Athletic Team (ie: LAX, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Baseball, etc.) they will receive automatic credit for their participation on the team. If you are wondering about credits for a BHS Athletic Team, please contact the office of the Athletic Director at athleticdirector at berkeley.net<mailto:athleticdirector at berkeley.net>

The YMCA P.E. waiver program is an alternative high school P.E. program designed to help students develop lifelong fitness habits and earn P.E. credits for school. Students are required to complete a total of 60-80 hours (or as dictated by their school) to earn credits toward their PE requirement. Students take group exercise classes, teen fitness classes, work out independently, maintain a booklet and meet with the program director three times during the program.
