Find Your Place – Find Your Y

Is your family looking for a place to stay healthy and meet new people? Look no further than the South Sound YMCA. As the largest provider of youth programs in the South Sound, the YMCA believes ALL kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Whether it’s through childcare programs at one of 30 elementary schools in the region, youth sports, swimming, civic education, or arts, Y programs cultivate opportunities for achievement and promote a sense of belonging.

Guided by the core values of CARING, HONESTY, RESPECT, & RESPONSIBILITY, the Y believes everyone — regardless of ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation — deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. The Y envisions a future in which all people achieve health, gain confidence, and feel secure at every stage of life. This is why the Y works every day to ensure they are moving their organization and South Sound communities closer to equity and breaking down the structures of racism and injustice that hold us all back from reaching our potential.

The healthy living options at the Y include swimming, yoga, indoor cycling, personal training, strength and cardio equipment, and group exercise classes. When you join the Y, you have access to it all! The Y is a leading voice on health and wellbeing in the community. With a mission centered on strengthening community, the South Sound YMCA brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, sports, and shared interests.
