A Little About Us

When you join the Y, you join a community.

The YMCA, located at 520 N. Centre St. Pottsville PA 17901, is for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.   They offer introduction to sport programs, competitive and recreational gymnastics and competitive swim.  They have an early learning program for toddlers offered 5 days a week, along with discovery programs (art, music and gym).  The fitness center is bigger than you might think and they offer an average of 20 group exercise classes throughout the week.  While you are working out, your children 1 year and older can be upstairs being supervised by staff.
