Branches Closed Temporarily

The safety and well-being of our staff, members, volunteers and guests is always the Y’s top priority. It is our social responsibility to do our part in the face of this unprecedented health emergency.

All First Coast YMCA branches are closed until further notice. This includes most programs and services.

We are following mandates and guidance from government leaders and health officials. As such, we unfortunately remain closed through the month of April.

Child Care

We are offering child care to our health care community, members and participants in a very limited capacity at 6 locations across the First Coast. We are taking extra precautions to help decrease the spread of the Coronavirus.

Virtual Services

Our staff will continue working hard for you throughout this time to provide new virtual services and other offerings.

Again, this is a quickly changing situation. Our leadership team will continue to evaluate whether we should resume operations based on current information and guidance from health officials and government leaders.

Your membership is so important to the good work that we have been doing for our First Coast community since 1908.

We ask that you continue to pay your membership fee so that we continue to provide necessary services for children, families and adults across the First Coast.

We can’t thank you enough for your continued loyalty to the Y. It means so much to us and to our entire community.

FAQs

Why are you closing?

The safety and well-being of our staff, members, volunteers and guests is always the Y’s top priority. As a community organization, it is our social responsibility to do our part in the face of this unprecedented health emergency. With new information from the CDC and government leaders, as well as guidance from key leadership on our Metro Board, we made the decision to temporarily close all branches. This is a precautionary measure and we remain committed to helping keep the First Coast healthy and strong.

How long will you be closed?

We are following mandates and guidance from government leaders and health officials. As such, we will unfortunately remain closed through at least the end of April. Please #staywithus and we will continue to keep you updated just as soon as we are able to reopen.

Can I place my membership on hold?

While we understand you may feel the need to place your membership on hold, we are encouraging all members to stay engaged with the First Coast YMCA during these uncertain times. The YMCA is committed to keeping this community strong and our First Coast Y staff will continue working to provide new virtual services and other offerings for our members.

Your membership fees during our closure may be converted to a charitable gift to support the Y. This gift is eligible for a tax receipt and you will be making a substantial difference in the lives of our neighbors all over the First Coast.

We will of course honor and respect all requests to hold memberships. If interested, please call 904.265.1775 and leave a voicemail with your contact information. Our staff is working remotely from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday, and we will do our best to return your call within 48 hours during those times.
