Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all YMCA Southcoast branches have different offerings available at this time. Nationwide Membership benefits are on pause.


When you join the Y, you’re coming together with men, women, and children from your community who are committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

We know first hand how difficult it can be to find balance in life. That’s why we’re here with you every day making sure that you, your family, and your community have the resources and support needed to learn, grow, and thrive.

With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving health, and well-being – and giving back and supporting our neighbors – your membership will not just bring about meaningful change in yourself, but in your community, too.

The volunteers, staff, members, and donors of YMCA Southcoast are all united by a deep commitment to strengthening our communities.

Updated COVID19 Protocols

As of August 2, 2021

Thank you for your loyalty and support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 updated its recommendations in the fight against COVID-19, urging everyone in areas of “high or substantial” COVID spread to wear masks indoors – even vaccinated people.

The CDC has classified all of Bristol County as an area of substantial transmission of the highly infectious coronavirus. Due to this guidance, all YMCA Southcoast branches will require indoor masking for staff, members, campers, and guests (regardless of vaccination status) starting on Monday, August 2, 2021.

Precautions will continue to be taken to ensure the health and safety of our members and staff at YMCA Southcoast branches: 

  • Clean and disinfect surfaces with increased effort and frequency
  • Ensure anti-bacterial agents are available for member use
  • Elevate staff awareness and establish clear guidelines so that staff can help members stay healthy

We will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and Governor Baker on any updates to policies regarding COVID-19.

Thank you for your patience and support as we collectively take the necessary precaution to keep our YMCA family and loved ones safe.
