WELCOME BACK

We’ve missed you at the YMCA of South Alabama! These past few months have been so challenging for all of us and we thank you for doing your part to help stop the spread of coronavirus – especially for the benefit of our most vulnerable neighbors.

We are thrilled to announce we are reopening our facilities and reactivating key programs on May 26, 2020. We’re following guidelines from health experts and local officials to ensure our facilities meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety, and we have modified our policies and programs to facilitate safe social distancing practices.

As a nonprofit dedicated to keeping our community healthy, safe and thriving for all, our members make our impact possible.

We invite you to join us when we reopen our facilities. We’re here to help you focus on what matters most: your health, your family and friends, and your community.

We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development – all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

IN UNCERTAIN TIMES, THE Y IS STILL HERE!

Though our doors may be closed, we are still working to meet the needs of our friends and neighbors in these uncertain times. That’s why we’re asking our members and the community at large to stay with us.  

We are just as eager as everyone to reopen our doors, and when that time comes, we know it will be an exciting day, filled with celebration. Until then, we will continue to do the work that is needed to keep our children safe, our seniors connected and our community healthy. But we can’t do it alone. Please. Stay with us

Each year, the YMCA of South Alabama reaches more than 25,000 people across our community through programs that helps anyone reach their full potential, including After School, Summer Day Camp, Swim Lessons, Safety Around Water, and Personal Training just to name a few. Since the COVID-19 situation arouse, the Y shifted its focus and responded quickly as the community’s needs changed.
