Specialty Aquatics Programs

Attention members: Effective Monday, March 16, the current sessions of youth basketball, Itty Bitty activities and swim lessons (including those slated to start this week) will be put on hold until a later date as yet undetermined. Please check back for more information and updates in the coming days. Thank you for your understanding. 

To our sports and swim participants: 

Thank you for being part of our Y youth programming. During this uncertain and unprecedented time, we are working to plan ahead for future programs and considering schedule details and credits for existing programs.

If your program had already begun but was canceled before completion, you will receive a prorated program credit. If you had registered for a program but it had not yet started, your program will be rescheduled when the Y/Family Wellness are able to reopen.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We will notify all registered participants about new program schedules as soon as we are able. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters together. Thank you!
