We’ve really missed seeing you around here, and we’re glad to be open again! 

The health and well-being of our members, staff and community is our priority. We are continuing to take extra precautions in our Ys, including health screenings, social/physical distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols, with guidance from state and local authorities. Please see our Reopening Guide for additional information and stay tuned for updates as we respond to evolving guidelines.

Although, in alignment with anticipated demand, the YMCA at the City Market remains closed at this time, a benefit of membership includes access to our 11 other locations, including the YMCA at the Athenaeum and the Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay in downtown Indianapolis.

Please know we’ll be taking some extra precautions as we reopen:

OUR STAFF WILL BE WEARING FACE MASKS and beginning Thursday, July 9, everyone 3 years of age and older must also wear a mask to enter our YMCAs. (There are specific exceptions for physical, medical or health-related reasons. Please stop at our welcome desk if assistance is needed.)

WE’VE SET NEW OCCUPANCY LIMITS in many areas of our Centers, and we’ve put markers in place to help members maintain appropriate physical distancing.


WE’VE ADDED SOME NEW POLICIES including enhanced cleaning protocols.

Here’s what you need to know:
