A very big THANK YOU to our friends at Auntie Anne’s for supporting the Y mission through their recent charity golf tournament. Many thanks to all the golfers, sponsors and volunteers involved in the event.

The tournament raised $34,000 for the YMCA. Through that support, we are able to continue to provide financial assistance for kids, families and adults in need to participate in our summer camp, early learning and health and wellness programs.

Thanks for helping to change lives and make a difference in our community!

City Center Y joins USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash Initiative
July 15


We’re excited to announce that our City Center Y has joined the USA Swimming Foundation’s water safety initiative, Make a Splash. The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative is a national child-focused water safety campaign, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim.

With drowning being the second leading cause of death for children from 5-14 years old, learning to swim and gaining water safety skills is a critical focus for the Y as we work to help all youth reach their full potential.
