Coronavirus Updates

September 9, 2020

Due to capacity limits in the pool area, we are only allowing one adult per family to accompany children to Swim Lessons at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we do not want to have to further limit the number of children we can have in each session in order to accommodate more spectators. Please also note that congregating in hallways and other common areas of the Y is not allowed. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

August 26, 2020

In-person group fitness classes return beginning Monday, August 31! Below is all the information you need to know if you want to attend classes:

SPACE IS LIMITED & PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED

In order to maintain proper distancing in the Prescott Room, AMP Room and the Functional Fitness Center, we will be limiting the number of people who can sign up for each class. Below are the limits for classes held in each room:

  • PRESCOTT – 23 people
  • AMP (power cycling classes) – 12 people
  • FFC (TRX) – 5 people

You will have to preregister through our website for every class. You cannot just show up at the Y and expect to be able to take classes. In order to preregister for classes, you first must have activated your online account for our membership and program registration software.

Click here for account setup instructions.

If you have any problems setting up your account, contact us.

Once your online account is activated, you will be able to reserve a spot in our classes. Reservations will open 23 hours in advance and close 15 minutes before the start of each class.

Click here for class registration instructions.

Please note: While the instructions mention reserving lap lanes, the process is the same for classes.

ARRIVAL AND CLASS PROTOCOLS

When you arrive at the Y, you must wear a face mask into the building and in all common areas. You must stop at the Welcome Center to answer our COVID-19 screening questions before scanning in.

If you have not yet signed our COVID-19 waiver, you must do that before proceeding past the desk. You can download a hard copy of the waiver (scroll down to see the buttons) and bring it with you. Or you can sign it electronically at the Y. Please note: Members ages 13 and up can sign up for fitness classes. Youth ages 13-17 will need to have a parent sign their waiver before they participate.

Answering the screening questions and signing the waiver will take time. Please plan accordingly and arrive with plenty of time to complete the process.

After answering the screening questions and signing the waiver, our Welcome Center staff will verify that you are registered for class before you will be able to go upstairs (or to the FFC). Once they verify your registration, you can proceed to the third floor for class.

Once upstairs, you will wait in the hallway on the Xs on the floor that maintain proper social distancing. Please keep your mask on in the hallway as it is a common area of the Y.

  • Make sure to clean off your bike before and after use using the gym wipes in the room.
  • You may remove your mask – if you choose to – once you are on your bike.
  • Once class is over, please put on your face mask and clean off your bike. Then proceed out of the room, downstairs and out of the building. Gathering in hallways, stairways or the lobby is not allowed.

FFC

  • The instructor will open the door when he or she is ready for you to come in. The instructor will check your name off their list, tell you what equipment you need and then let you in the room.

MORE POOL ACTIVITIES TO RESUME

June 24, 2020

We continue to be very pleased with how our reopening plan is going. We remain committed to our phased approach. We believe our added health and safety measures and the diligence of members in adhering to our protocols are the driving factors behind the success we are experiencing.

WAIVERS

Before being able to use the Y, we need all members (adults and minors) to sign our updated waiver. Adults have several options when it comes to signing the waiver:

  • Bring in a hard copy of the signed waiver and give it to the Welcome Center when checking in. (FASTEST METHOD)
  • Sign the waiver electronically on your phone or tablet when you check in at the Y. (SAVES TREES AND TAKES LESS THAN 1 MINUTE TO COMPLETE)
  • If you don’t have a phone or tablet with you, use our kiosk to sign the waiver when you check in at the Y. (TAKES THE MOST TIME, BUT STILL SAVES TREES)

All minors will need to bring a hard copy of the waiver signed by their parent or guardian before being able to use the facility. If they do not have the signed waiver or a parent with them to sign it in person, we can attempt to send it to a parent electronically. But if they do not get back to us, the minor will not be able to use the facility.

You can download the waivers below:

CONSTRUCTION FORCES CHANGES IN SOME Y PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

We will not have space to offer these programs once the former school building is demolished.

Both Child Watch and the Exergame Youth Room will return when Phase 2 is completed. Both rooms will be conveniently located on the first floor across from the Welcome Center.

Parents who still have unused Child Watch punch cards may request a refund.
