I will need child care while I work out. What does the Y offer?
Our center offers child care through our Kids Zone program. Kids Zone is free of charge with your household membership for your child ages 3 months to 8 years old. Care is available for up to two hours while you are in the Y facility. Your child will be engaged in active play during their time in Kids Zone. We put safety first with a sign-in and sign-out procedure practiced at all times.
Does my child need to wear a personal flotation device in the pool?
All children 14 years and younger are required to pass a swim test before being allowed to be in a YMCA of Greater Kansas City pool without a personal flotation device or without direct adult supervision. Children 9 years and older can use the pool independently without a parent if they pass a test but children 8 years and younger who pass the test must still have a parent present in the pool area. A parent needs to remain in the building.
I'm visiting from out of town. Can I use my Y membership from another Y at your facility?
Yes. Our Y participates in the Y AWAY (Always Welcome at the Y) program, which allows Y members from across the country to use our Y up to 10 times in a calendar year without a fee.
Can I purchase a day pass to use the facility?
Yes. You can pay our daily use fee at the Welcome Center and access everything our Y has to offer for the entire day.
