THE SAFETY OF ALL IN OUR CARE IS OUR TOP PRIORITY.

Following the CDC’s COVID-19 guidelines, our goal is to create the safest environment possible so that we can continue to provide you with the services you need, without interruption, and do our part to help keep our community healthy.

We highly recommend members, program participants and guests wear a mask indoors at the Y, especially those who are not fully vaccinated. Each of our branches have extensive safety measures already in place and will follow additional protocols for youth sports.

  • Benches, bleachers, and equipment will be disinfected between each practice and game.
  • Practice and game lengths have been adjusted to allow for 15 minutes between each session for cleaning and safe crowd transitions.
  • Pre and post-game team huddles will be conducted outdoors.
  • Each participant will be limited to a pre-determined amount of spectators, who will be required to follow all safety protocols.
