Youth Usage Guidelines


Youth ages 12-13 may use the upstairs workout area on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 pm with a parent/guardian after the youth AND their parent/guardian complete a weight training orientation. For their safety, youth under 14 are not permitted on the second floor work out area. We do allow family time on the walking track Monday through Friday from 7:00-8:00 pm. Parent/guardian must be within arms reach at all times!

Children in the Y

Children 7 years and older may use Y facilities without parental supervision. Unstructured activities available include freeplay basketball and game room. All children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by a parent/or responsible person (age 14 & up) unless in an organized, supervised program.

Youth Sports

We offer many different youth programs to keep kids active and involved. The goal of the YMCA Youth Sports program is to teach kids more than just winning the game. We strive to teach children about values and teamwork. We work to enhance sports skills, as well as self-esteem. We know a child has succeeded in our program when he or she has had a great time and played to his or her best ability. A long-standing tradition in our 150-year-old organization is to allow every child the experience of playing an equal amount in each game.  You can learn more about the youth sports we offer by visiting our Youth Sports and Fitness page.

YMCA Sports Pledge: I pledge to play the game the best I can, to be a team player, to respect my opponent, and to improve myself in spirit, mind, and body.

Youth Memberships

At the Y, we offer many different types of memberships.  If your whole family isn't able to use the YMCA, consider purchasing a Youth Membership.  Youth memberships give kids access to the YMCA and membership discounts on all our programs.  For more information, visit our Join the Y page.
