At the Y, we're for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We believe everyone deserves access to opportunities that help them realize their full potential, regardless of ability to pay. That's why it's so important for the Y to raise contributions for those who need financial assistance.


Fall registration

is now open!

Fall I Session

September 8 - October 26

Fall II Session

November 1 - December 19

Dear Members,

Unfortunately, we’ve encountered some technical difficulties with Fall II swim lesson registration this morning at our Casco Bay and Pineland branches.  We are unable to register anyone online or in house.  We are currently working to fix the issues.

To make the process as fair as possible, we will be re-opening the Fall II swim lesson registration at one time.  Registration will re-open at:

  • 12 noon today (Monday) for the Pineland branch
  • 5 am tomorrow (Tuesday) for the Casco Bay branch

For Pineland lessons, some lessons were available for registration this morning.  If you have already registered, that registration will not be lost.  If you registered for a class that you did not want, but were hoping to hold a spot, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can cancel that registration and maintain accurate class rosters.  Program registration is currently open as planned for all other programs.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused and appreciate everyone’s patience this morning while we tried to figure this out!

Support our Annual Campaign in 2015!




All proceeds go directly towards our financial assistance program to ensure that we stay true to our promise to turn no one away because of an inability to pay.

When you give to a YMCA of Southern Maine branch, your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community in Southern Maine. 

Now, when you think of the Y, you'll know it's more than just a gym... it's a cause.  A cause, that, with your generous support, will continue to strengthen the community in which you live.




Swim Test Policy

We implemented a new "Test, Mark, and Protect" swim policy with the goal of making our facility the safest it can be for you and your family on January 6th, 2014.  It includes our current policies on the age of individuals and youth facility usage.

To see the Swim Test Policy, click here.

Please contact the Aquatics Department at any branch if you have any questions.
