Winter Programs: January 4th – February 14th Registration is open!
2020 was a challenging year that required families to break from their typical routines and adapt to new ways of doing things. Since July of 2020, the Y has been adapting as well. The Y remains committed to helping you and your family stay active, engaged, and above all, safe.  Stay active as a family by signing up for swimming, sports, music, and fitness programs! Register today:

Create A Class – Put together the roster, and the Y will run the program!
Stay involved in your favorite activities AND keep within your bubble or cohort! The Y has introduced the option to form your own group of participants to create a class. Whether it’s your school cohort, a family bubble, or a neighbor group, the Y will work with you to set up a day and time for your group and the program of your choosing.

Most Y programs can be adapted to Create A Class. Everything from toddler tumbling to teen basketball, youth swim lessons to yoga, and everything in between! Classes can take place indoors, outdoors, or virtually.

West Suburban YMCA programs have been adapted to operate in accordance with all safety protocols and sector-specific guidelines outlined by the CDC, the state of Massachusetts, and local health authorities. If you have questions about a specific program or class, please visit the Y’s website for more information and registration.
