The YMCA Way

YMCA recreation centres build healthy communities - come for a splash with the family, hit the gym, swim laps or simply shoot some hoops. Your local YMCA membership is your all-access pass to health, fitness, sport and family fun. Learn how we're so much more than just a gym . . .

Facilities

Active living isn’t just about hitting the gym. It’s about prioritising physical activity and finding activities that you want to do, rather than something you should do. From swimming to group fitness, to stadium and court sports fun, your local Y has you covered.

The YMCA manages South Australia's largest and best recreation and leisure centres. Each centre has unique set of amenities including gym/fitness centre, group fitness (including Aqua and Les Mills), pools, spa and steam rooms, stadium courts, change rooms and cafe.
