We’re staying open later
We heard you members! You wanted us to stay open later, so, beginning January 2, the Kirk Family YMCA and Salem Family YMCA will keep their Wellness Center, gym and locker rooms open until 10pm Mon-Thurs. Kirk’s racquetball courts will also stay open until 10pm. All other hours will remain the same. It’s our way of ringing in a happy, healthy New Year.
3 Things to be thankful for…
1. THE DRUMSTICK DASH
One nonprofit helping another is what social responsibility is all about; and that’s why the YMCA was proud to support the Rescue Mission’s Drumstick Dash. More than 195 people signed up to “Do the Dash” with fellow Y members–making us the largest non-profit group.
2. HOLIDAY FUN!
Christmas is for kids, and this year we have fun and enriching activities and programs to make their season merry and bright, including: Swimming with Santa, FREE Family Fun Night, Winter Camps and more! These programs only come once a year. Learn more.
3. FRIENDS & FAMILY
So that we can all celebrate the holidays and spend time with our friends and family, Our Y branches will close on the following:
Christmas Eve: Closed at 2pm
Christmas Day: Closed
New Year’s Eve: Closed at 6pm
New Year’s Day: Closed
Winter programs are here!
Registration is now open
Staying active and engaged is important-especially in the winter months when the chilly weather makes outdoor physical activity a little daunting. At the Y you can prevent cabin fever with youth programs like gymnastics, karate, dance, basketball and fencing and healthy living programs like NEW adult dance classes, racquetball lessons, bootcamps, personal training and more.
See all our winter programs here.
Instructional Basketball Association
Teams now forming
The YMCA knows basketball–in fact, we invented it! In the Instructional Basketball Association (IBA), young players get to play in a competitive environment with other league teams outside the Y. We are proud to once again partner with Roanoke Catholic School, High Street Baptist Church, Boys & Girls Clubs and the Inner City Athletic Association to teach young players good sportsmanship and skills that will prepare them for the next level of competition. Teams are now forming: Beginner Co-eds in Grades 2-3, Intermediate Boys in grades 4-5 and Intermediate Girls Grades 4-5. Practices begin Dec 1, and Saturday games start Jan 5.
