we are here for our community

safe and fun programs

Throughout the Y’s history, we have been called upon in times of crisis and conflict to provide critical services. As soon as it became apparent that the YMCA of Southern Arizona needed to change our course to support our community, we did. Our teams immediately mobilized to explore ways to support you. As schools navigate reopening over the next several months, we will continue offer services to assist the needs of our families.

We are now accepting YKids Choice program registrations for children ages 5-12 years at four sites in the Tucson area, August 3 – August 14. The dates will be extended if the Governor issues another extension of in person learning. The daily attendance and tiered pricing structure allow for affordability and flexibility.

Please note the following:

Students are highly encouraged to bring their school work with them as our program is focused on ensuring children are still engaged in their learning while at the ymca.
  • You MUST present your ID when picking up.
  • All check in and out procedures will occur outside of the facilities.
  • Parents and caregivers will not be allowed in the facility.
  • All children will have their temperature checked prior to entering the facility.
  • All staff and children are required to wear a face covering or mask unless medically exempt.
  • The YMCA staff will keep groups at 12 or less.
  • Groups will move independently within the facility separated from other groups.
  • Groups will sanitize and disinfect their areas between transitions.
