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.


Try the Y from January 16th to February 6th!

We're opening up the Y to help you start the year off strong!  It won't cost a thing to try, but we'll reward you for trying.  Feel free to just stop by, you don't need to call ahead or have an invitation - everyone's welcome!

Here are all of the great things you can try at the Y when you visit any of our branches:

  • All group exercise classes (over 200+ to try!)
  • Our Prime Time Program ("while you're here child care")
  • All youth programs* (including sports & recreation and arts & humanities classes)
  • All open facility usage (open gym, open swim, squash, bowling, etc.)
  • Kids Night Out on February 6th at all branches

Check out the schedules at each branch (linked below) or come in to the Y to see what classes & activities will work best for you.

*Swim lessons & child care are not included based on staffing ratio requirements.

We'll be offering Trek Across Maine Indoor Cycling Classes at our branches during our Winter I & II session.  The Trek Across Maine is from June 19-21, 2015 and is a 180 mile bike ride across Maine in support of the American Lung Association.

For more information on the Trek Across Maine, please visit their website.

Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming Indoor Cycling Classes to prepare for the Trek!

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.
