We are opening on Monday, Aug 31!
Dear Valued YMCA Member,

Our reopening date is around the corner and we just want to say again how excited we are to see you.

You’re not who you were pre-COVID. And neither are we. 

We're learning new practices, implementing new procedures and ultimately trying our very best to make your experience of coming to the Y as safe and smooth as possible. 

We just wanted to remind you about a few things before your first visit.
What you need to bring:
  • Your face mask. Everyone is required to wear a mask indoors, unless you are performing physical activity or in the pool.
  • Your membership card.
  • Your own water bottle. Regular drinking water fountains will not be running.
  • Your workout clothes. We recommend you show up dressed for your workout as our change rooms will only be available for aquatics use.
  • Your own lock, towel, yoga mat or other fitness equipment.
How we're managing capacity:
  • To provide a safe experience, we have set up many of our programs as registered programs through GameTime (Learn more about how to use GameTime).
  • For programs or areas that are non-registered, such as our fitness centre and some rec sports, we will do our best to manage capacity safely.
  • As we reopen, if we learn that we need to shift some non-registered programs to make them registered programs, we're fully prepared to make that decision.

If you are playing Basketball or Pickleball, please note: There will be no game play allowed during our Basketball times, these times are just for shooting around or other drills. We will do our best to set up the Pickleball nets so that you simply have to show up and start playing.

For Badminton: Singles play or Doubles play (with your family / social bubble) are permitted. 

Leisure Pool usage, please note: We are currently performing some repairs on our leisure pool and it will not be available during the first week of our reopening. We are hoping to have the repairs completed as soon as possible and will update you if we anticipate any further delays.
Reopening our Y will be a learning experience for all of us and we're excited to go through it with you.

You are why we're here for good.  

Stay well and see you soon, 

Shawn Ashe
