Get Excited NEW


Our long planned Family Center expansion has fully taken shape and we’re closer than ever to opening our exciting sports and aquatics complex, all thanks to you! Your generosity and commitment over the last few years has shown the importance of this major project to our Y community now and for the future. Thank you for making so much possible through your support.

The Y has begun introducing programs in the new space as well as in its existing spaces.One of the first new spaces NOW OPEN, the Glasser Center, features the transformation of the former basketball gym to a specialized strength, performance and functional training center. Our new 8-lane pool, featuring 7-foot-wide lanes, is now open for lap swimming for our members. We anticipate that new programs and services will be introduced throughout the remainder of 2021 and into 2022 to fully utilize the new expansion and repurposed spaces.

“Our purpose is so much deeper than our new pool. As we continue to expand our spaces to bring home our Mariners swim team, teach lifesaving skills to those learning how to swim, and classes for members swimming for health and wellness, we also look to expand our staff. With trainings and competitive pay, the Y truly invests in its staff.”
-Senior Aquatics Director & Mariners Head Coach Jon Siegel
