We are excited to share a new registration system for several of our programs beginning in January 2024. Registrations will open for both Y members and Program (non) members on the 1st of each month prior to the program beginning. Many of our programs will be going to a monthly schedule (i.e. swim lessons and several youth programs.) Youth sports are not included in this new monthly programming. The registration period will be for 1 month prior to the program starting and will close only when the program is full. Registrations for January 2024, will begin on December 1st and will last until January 1st and so forth. Y members will have the opportunity to register for these programs online, so please contact the Front Desk if you are interested in getting set up to learn how! Please reach out to any of the YMCA Program Directors if you have any questions. We look forward to helping you register for 2024 programs starting on December 1st!
