Our Cause: Strengthening the Foundations of Community

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

From athletics, to education, to health services, to safe spaces, the Y fills the gaps where society falls short. We’re an inclusive organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

The Family Pool contains a splash pad with 0 ft. depth entry, whirlpool, and exercise area up to 5 ft. in depth. Certified Lifeguards are always on duty. We post our Family Pool Schedule and Lap Pool Schedule on the website to help you plan your activities.

Our fully equipped fitness center includes free weights, functional training, squat racks, and machine circuit. Cardio equipment includes stationary bikes, treadmills, elliptical trainers, recumbent elliptical trainers, arc trainers, spinning bikes and alternate motion trainers.

Indoor Running & Walking Track

The track has three lanes and is surrounded by windows. It is available for walking and running. Twelve laps around the outside lane equals one mile.

Basketball, squash and racquetball courts are available. Check out our Gym Schedule for events and games.

Climbing Wall

Our 40-foot climbing wall features a totally natural, seamless rock face with climbing routes set for beginners through advanced climbers. The climbing wall is open when a safety instructor is on site. We put the Climbing Wall Schedule on the website to help you plan your activities.
