Happy New Year!

Thank you for staying with us this year. As a Y member, you’re helping Marion’s only full day child care center provide care to over 70 children this school year; helping people of all abilities & disabilities stay physically active; helping support adult volunteer mentors through Marion Mentors; and much more that strengthens our community. Thank you!

Below are important updates to our COVID19 related protocols and practices:

Building Hours: Starting Jan. 4 we’ll no longer close for cleaning mid-day. We’ll continue to perform extra cleaning each afternoon 2:15-3:15 pm, but will remain open for members.

Mask Requirement: We’re continuing to require masks at all times, including while exercising (except when in the pools or in your designated spot in a Group Exercise class). We’ll review this next when data comes out on January 7.

Notification to Members: When we learn that a member or staff member was in the building when potentially contagious with COVID19 we’ll contact those members who we’re able to determine had contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with that individual or who were in a class with that individual. For all other potential exposures, we ask that members assume each time you come in the Y, someone in the building is currently contagious with COVID19.

Social Distancing: It’s important for all members to continue practicing social distancing within the Y facility. Please remain 6 feet or more from everyone outside of your household.

Check Out & Exits: Please check out when you leave by scanning your membership card (or barcode stored on your phone) at the Wellness Center or lobby exit. You may exit the Y either through the Wellness Center or the lobby.

Open Gym / Basketballs: We have lots of Open Gym time with no reservations required. Come on in and shoot some hoops. You must bring your own ball and basketball games are prohibited, but the gyms aren’t busy so it’s a good time to practice your skills. Click here for the January Gym Schedule.

Reservations: We continue to require reservations for Group Exercise classes, lap swimming, individual exercise in the Small Pool, Family Swim, and Child Watch. All reservations are through the GroupExPro website. You may also call the Y 740-725-9622 to make a reservation. You can find schedules on our website.

Please stay up to date on all of our operational procedures by reviewing our FAQ page on our website.

JUMP START 2021: Join us in jump starting the new year with this fun and social fitness challenge. You can simply download the calendar and follow each day’s activity, but it’s more fun to be social. Join the event on the YMCA’s page on Facebook and share your experience along the way.

Here's to a 2021 that's better than 2020!
