    Jimmy Skaggs
     
    James (Jimmy) Skaggs has been a part of the Betty J Pullum YMCA since January 2009. When James and his wife, Joyce, noticed the YMCA was close to their home in Navarre, and that there was a swimming pool, they decided to become members at the Pullum Y.

    Karate returns to Pullum
     
    Karate practice has a myriad of benefits to include strengthening, improved flexibility, better coordination, and balance. Students can see improvements in confidence, focus, meditation, and thought processes. This program helps develop a sense of loyalty, discipline, honesty, respect, courage, honor, and integrity. Karate will also hone your leadership and teamwork skills.
