 Returning to the Y

While we are eagerly awaiting your return, we want you to be aware that things may look a little different at your Y. We have adjusted some of our policies to help keep our members safe and healthy in our buildings. Before returning to the Y, please remember to:

Reserve Your Time

In order to better serve our members, we are relaxing our reservation policy for select wellness activities. Starting Monday, October 5, reservations will be:

  • RECOMMENDED* for the wellness center and group exercise classes
  • REQUIRED for open swim, lap swim and water exercise classes

*Access to the facility is still available only during specific time blocks, which you can find here.

Please remember, members who have a reservation will continue to have precedence. We are still under capacity restrictions and once capacity has reached, no more walk-ins can be accepted, and you may be turned away. We hope this change allows you greater freedom to enjoy the Y, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

For activities requiring a reservation:

  • Members may reserve up to two time slots per day, per person.
  • Your reservation time includes checking in at the welcome center, working out and checking out.
  • Please be considerate of leaving at the end of your time slot.
