- About The Y
(The following information pertains to The Y's Child Care Programs and Youth Sports around SLO County. Please see section below for information regarding The Y's Fitness Facility on Southwood Drive.)
The SLO County YMCA is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our members, children and families. In an effort to keep you and your family healthy and
prevent the spread of germs, we are sharing some important information.
YMCA Child Care programs will be closed in accordance with the closures of our local school district campuses. As of now, closures are as follows:
Lucia Mar: Monday, March 16 – Monday, May 4
Paso Robles: Monday, March 16 – Monday, May 4
San Luis Coastal: Monday, March 16 – Monday, May 4
Coast Unified: Monday, March 16 - TBD
In support of the school districts and state guidelines, when a school site is closed, we will not be offering any child care programs at our Y program sites. Youth sports programs are also postponed. In the event a school reopens earlier, we will open as well.
Program registrations will be put on hold until our services resume. A credit of the unused days will be applied to each account. The credit will be applied, as a portion of the payment for the next payment due, at the time our services resume.
We will keep all families updated with information as it develops. Emails will be sent regularly, and messages will also be posted on our website and social media. In the event of a sudden change, please see our social media: https://www.facebook.com/
Closure for any length of time represents a significant threat to our non-profit organization. We know that our Y is an extension of your family and we remain honored and committed to serving you, just as we have served for the last 60 years. We are committed to doing everything possible to secure the future of our YMCA, and our services, as these uncertain times continue. If you'd like to make a donation to our YMCA to help fund our continued efforts, please visit www.sloymca.org/donate.
At the SLO County YMCA, the well-being of our members, staff, and the broader community, has always been, and always will be, our top priority. Because of this commitment, we are adjusting our approach, as advised by public officials and in response to a growing need. The Y is so much more than a gym, and it’s more important than ever to live our YMCA mission of serving and strengthening our communities.
In order to ensure the health of our entire Y community, we have suspended operations of our fitness facility to the public on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
We understand that this announcement may feel abrupt and unexpected. We are grateful for the outpouring of support many of you have expressed. The decision to close our fitness facilities was made to best ensure the safety of everyone in our community. We are hopeful that these significant precautions will help prevent additional spread of the virus, and that we can begin to return to our normal routines soon.
How this will affect YMCA membership:

As YMCA Fitness members, you have a choice to join us in this effort.
Active SLO County YMCA members will continue to recieve regular updates and access to On Demand resources.
So what’s next for our Y? We are discussing ways we can serve the community, and are actively looking for gaps in services that we can provide in a safe manner.
We know you still have a lot of questions. We do, too. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this evolving and challenging situation.
We will continue to work with the health department to determine what other actions, if any, would be prudent on our part and when it will be safe to reopen our facilities at this time, we are estimating a four week closure. During this closure, we will provide updates and information directly to staff, members, and participants via email. We will also be posting information to our website and social media.
Whatever you choose, we thank you for your support and understanding. Please take care of yourself and one another. Our community is strong, and together, we will get through this.
We are thinking of you, your families, and your employers during this monumental chapter in history.
