COVID-19 . . . A quick update for you on our plan here at the Y

THANK YOU FOR STICKING WITH US! We are excited to be re-opening our Y, step by step!  Here are some updates for you by area:

Fitness Center – BY RESERVATION

OPEN OPEN OPEN! Please review these member policies to be in the loop on any changes to the member experience. Our new reservation system will allow Y members to book up to 3 days in advance.  Easiest access to make a reservation is via our ‘YMCA Treasure Coast’ app available for Apple or Android devices or from our Homepage.

For the health and safety of our members, Fitness Center Hours will be temporarily limited to the following schedule: Mon-Fri 6am-1pm and 4pm-8pm, Sat/Sun 7am-1pm with reservation availability on the hour. Reservations slots will be for 45 minutes of workout time.  Please note that showers will not be available until further notice.  We recommend that members wear masks, but they are not required.  You will notice blue lines on the floor of the fitness center to mark off ‘zones’, we ask that only one member be in a zone at time.  You will also receive a “cleaning towel” to personally use on each piece of equipment as you work out for sanitary reasons.  This is not a sweat towel, please be sure to bring your own sweat towel.  Please be sure to review the full list of member policies prior to making your reservation.

Aquatics/Outdoor Wellness – BY RESERVATION

We are happy to announce that we have now extended Lap Swimming hours to include Nights and Weekends!  In addition to the classes available this week, we have more outdoor classes coming to the schedule June 1st, we will also have a few classes in the gymnasium!

Due to capacity limitations, LAP SWIM AND OUTSIDE CLASSES MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE.  Our reservation system will allow Y members to book up to 3 days in advance.  Easiest access to make a reservation is via our ‘YMCA Treasure Coast’ app available for Apple or Android devices or from our Homepage.

We are hosting Facebook LIVE workouts. Be sure to like our YMCA TC page on Facebook for instructor posts and join our #SocialDistancingYMCA group!

Pickleball/Gymnasium – See the SCHEDULE HERE

Pickleball reservations will be available for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am-1:30pm.  We will take up to 8 appointments for 2 courts at each of these hour reservation times.  We ask participants to be responsible for wiping down paddles and ablls in between games and limit the sharing of equipment.

Open Gymnasium/Basketball reservations are also now available.  We will take 2 appointments at each of these hour reservation times.  One appointment booking will be allowed to accommodate up to 4 members, so a family of 4 can make just one appointment.

Childwatch

Childwatch is back!  YAY!!!!  Our new Childwatch hours will be Mon-Sat 8am-noon for members who are using the wellness center, swimming laps or taking a class.  Childwatch will be limited to 9 children, and you must have a fitness center or group ex class reservation to be granted access to Childwatch.

Childcare

Summer Camp registration is open and we have secured an additional location to take on more registrations.  So if you heard we were full, YOU CAN NOW REGISTER!  Check out our Summer Camp page for registration info.

For the safety of all children as well as our staff, we will be checking temperatures of both children and parents at the time of drop off.  We are also routinely checking temperature throughout the day.  At the time of drop-off, please be mindful of our 6 foot demarcations on the ground and do not gather at check in tables.  We are breaking down our group sizes to be within a 1:9 ratio to ensure that we are following the guidelines of the CDC.  We will not be taking off-site field trips.  For regularly enrolled Preschool students, please keep in close communication with your child’s teacher.  Our Teddy Bear Academy in both Stuart and Indiantown is OPEN.  For any other Childcare inquiries, please email Robert Griggs.

Virtual Wellness

A big shout-out to our fantastic instructors for hosting live workout sessions!  They are committed to your wellness and we are proud to have them on our team.  Be sure to connect with them on our YMCA TC page on Facebook and join our #SocialDistancingYMCA group with Lori, Tressa and others! Their daily workouts can be watched LIVE for those wanting the interaction, or they can be viewed any time of the day for your schedule convenience.

Youth Sports

All Youth Sports registrations for the Soccer, Volleyball and Flag Football league from Spring 2020 season have been transferred to the Fall 2020 season.  If you were registered and paid for the Spring season, you do not need to do anything or worry about your Fall registration, it is all taken care of!  Basketball will be returned as a YMCA System Credit by June 1st.  This credit never expires and can be used towards your membership or any other program.

Special Events

Our Annual Campaign Celebration has been cancelled.   To help support our year round mission, please consider donating to support our cause and keep our Y positioned to serve critical community needs. Our Clay Shoot has been postponed until October and our Easter House drawing has been postponed until June 4th.  There is still time to get Easter House Tickets!
