Plan your time at the YMCA

Swim lessons, sports, tumbling, personal training, even birthday parties – we have something for everyone at the YMCA! Plan your time at the Y with the help of our planning guides, an easy-to-read printable guide to YMCA programs.

Below are our ten YMCAs and their planning guides, by department. Remember, if you’re member at one, you’re a member at all our YMCA locations!

A 6-week session of swim lessons will begin on August 16! Registration will open on Monday, August 3 for members and Friday, August 7 for non members. Please see your YMCA Branch below for lesson days & times. The Butler-Gast YMCA and Twin Rivers YMCA will not be holding lessons this session.

For the safety of our participants and our instructors, please note the following updates for classes:

  • All lessons will be 30 minutes in length to allow for time to clean & disinfect before the next class.
  • Swim instructors will wear face shields.
  • One parent/guardian is allowed on the pool deck during class. When observing lessons, we encourage you to wear a mask and practice social distancing while in the pool area.
  • Please clear the pool deck after class is completed to allow for the staff to clean.

Upcoming session dates: First Fall Session: September 27-November 7. Registration opens: Members: September 14; Non members: September 18.

How do I sign up for a program at the YMCA?

You can register online or in person at any of our 10 YMCAs with the help of our friendly Welcome Center team.

Many of our programs,  including swim lessons and tumbling, follow 6 week sessions. Others, including personal training and early childhood programs, may follow weekly or monthly schedules and are indicated as such in the program guides. Our sports seasons can be found here.

If you ever have questions, call, stop in and ask! We’re always here to help.
