REFLECTING ON OUR PAST...
Since our local governemt charted the YMCA on March 24th, 1992, our facility, previously West-Sparta Elementary School and Sparta
Recretaional Center, has been home to a thriving wellness center, evolving group exercise classes, an expanding community, and more. Today, after numerous renovations and expansions,
our YMCA supports over 1,000 members and sees over 3,000 member visits per month.
...INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE
The YMCA states that no one should be turned away because of inability to pay. We are going
to make sure that promise holds true. In January 2019, our Y implimented an Open Doors program, a scholorship for financial aid for low income families.
Other programs we hope to enstate in 2019 with your help:
- Afterschool Program
- Discount for youth in the community to access the pool once per week
- Swim Lessons outreach into the community
- Youth Sports: Reinstatment of T-Ball
- Family & Child programs: Parents Night Out, Mommy & Me, etc.
- Summer Day Camp
- Enrichment programs
We are the smallest YMCA in the state. It takes people like you and your generosity to help
ensure our facilities are safe and equipped to meet the needs of our members and our community.
Be a part of something great!
