In preparation for reopening facilities, we are following guidelines from health experts and local officials to ensure all components of facilities meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety.  We have also modified policies and programs to facilitate safe social/physical distancing practices.  Finally, we want to thank those of you that completed the survey.  Your input is valuable and was taken into consideration with the revisions for Phase 1.

Our Y has always been more than a building.  Our Y is about people – people from all backgrounds and walks of life who come together to improve their lives, raise their families and strengthen community.  We are so incredibly grateful to the people who have stayed with us throughout these challenging times.  You were here for your community when it needed it most, and we remain here for you.

Thank you for your continued support.

Regular exercise is one component of a healthy lifestyle that can help reduce stress and prevent illness. While we would love to see you at the Y, we honor and respect each individual’s choice with regard to your health during this time. If you are unable to join us at one of our facilities, we have a variety of at-home exercise options for members.
