We’re excited to announce that the J.A. Walters Family YMCA will reopen our facility on Monday, May 18th! Thank you for your patience and support during the last two months.

Please be assured that your safety is our number one priority. We have put careful thought and planning into our reopening. Just like many businesses in our community, we are thoughtfully and carefully reopening in phases.  We have followed guidance from the CDC, local health agencies and state government to update our policies, practices and procedures to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene and make appropriate accommodations for social distancing so that every person who walks through our doors can stay safe and protected while getting back to what matters most: your health, your family and friends, and your community. Please continue to visit our website for frequent updates.
