Y Members Only Access By Reservation

A reservation is required through our new smartphone app before you attend the Y.  This app can also be used on a tablet or iPad.  We are also fine tuning details for online booking and phone in options. Check back soon for more details and the app launch!

Drop in access without a reservation is not available.  At this time the Y is unable to accommodate access for drop ins, visiting Y members,guests or promotional members.

Members may make 1 reservation to attend the Y per day.  Your reservation will be for a class or an area as per the list below.  The class schedule will be available July 14. Scroll down to see a comprehensive list of facilities and services that are available.


What to Expect

New protocols will be in place, including but not limited to: controlled access into Y facilities, maintaining distancing throughout Y facilities, directional walkways and enhanced cleaning protocols for both Y members and staff.  Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the facility.  As always, we will provide disinfectant for members to use on their equipment before and after use, and we will be diligent in encouraging members to do this practice.There is a built in period of time between reservations where staff will be disinfecting equipment and high touch surfaces.

But one thing remains the same… our friendly and welcoming staff will be ready to greet you and assist you as we all learn and adjust together.

Arrival for your Reservation

The Y will be using multiple entrances and exits.  Please check the areas below for where to arrive.

The 5 Minute Rule – Members may line up 5 minutes prior to the start of their reservation time & have access to enter the facility until 5 minutes past the start time.  The door will be locked and access closed after this period.

Upon arrival please line up  and maintain physical distancing of 6ft/2m.  We encourage you to introduce yourself to someone new; remember we are all in this together.  Smaller numbers in our facilities mean a great opportunity to meet new people in our Y community! Please ensure you arrive with photo ID or your previous membership card.  Y staff will need to see this to check you in for your reservation.

This will be required every visit to the Y… even after we get to know you.  We appreciate your assistance with this requirement.


Facility Availability

The Y team has worked very hard to ensure we can open as many facility areas for use. Some items and areas, however, will not be available due to health and safety and/or capacity restrictions.  As restrictions change this list will be updated.
