We have enjoyed seeing you in our community centers since September. You bring our mission to life! In support of preventing the spread of COVID-19 and the Governor’s orders, the Y is shifting operations to help you stay healthy at home and meet our community's needs:

  • YMCA buildings are open for pool activities only. All other areas of the Y are closed, effective November 17. Pool activities include lap swimming, water aerobics, and recreational swim. Please continue to make reservations for all pool activities. Building hours remain the same.
  • Your favorite group exercise classes will continue online beginning Thursday, November 19. Classes are available to Y members only, so please continue to make reservations and you'll receive online login information via email the day of your class.
  • Arts, dance, and gymnastics programs will be available online beginning November 23. Registered participants will receive direct communication via email with login information for your class.
  • YMCA Child Care and YMCA Camp Seymour Scholars remain open to provide distance learning support to more than 600 students every day.
  • YMCA Camp Seymour Outdoor Adventures will continue with one family per activity.
  • Tacoma Center YMCA and Mel Korum Family YMCA will continue to provide showers to our homeless population in partnership with Valeo Vocation.
  • Y on the Fly will continue serving middle school students with academic support and family resources in the Tacoma community.

We hope all Y members stay healthy during this time. Your Y membership will remain active so you can continue to enjoy the pool and virtual classes, but you may apply for a Y Experience Scholarship at or place your membership on hold at no cost at

As a Y community, we have strengthened community together and stayed healthy together, and we will continue to support each other.
