Prescott YMCA Reopening Information

Due to Governor Ducey's Executive Order issued 06/29/20 we have suspended all operations (except child care) for at least one month. See you when we reopen!

Our top priority here at the James Family Prescott Valley YMCA has always been and will continue to be the health and safety of our members and staff. We have worked closely with the Governor’s office to create a phased re-opening plan and to implement guidelines to safely re-open.

Prescott, AZ, June 4, 2020 — We are excited to announce our re-opening Phase 2.1 for our YMCA Monday, June 8th! Since reopening our fitness center and weight room on May 18, we have continued to keep the health and safety of our members and staff top-of-mind. We’ve continued to follow the guidance from government and health officials, and are prepared to reopen several additional programs and branch amenities with the same intentional approach you have come to trust at the Y. In addition to our fitness floor operations, we are pleased to announce that our pools, group fitness classes, personal training, locker rooms and Childwatch will reopen with the new operational guidelines below. We are reviewing opening guidelines from the National YMCA for gymnastics and dance and will continue to keep you updated.
