Weston gym holds log rolling classes

Posted:
WESTON, Wis. (WAOW) -

Every Sunday the Weston YMCA has over 30 kids coming in to try out log rolling.

The sport was first started as tradition by the lumberjacks in the Northwoods.

Instructors at the aquatic center say there is a lot more that comes with the sport than just balancing on water.

"What these kids are really learning is focus on concentration, core stuff and the ability to get out there and do something on your own and we have seen a huge upturn and positivity with everyone in this program," instructor Kevin Dodd said.

The sessions are on Sundays at 11 a.m. 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. at three different levels.
