Local to South Australia

Despite its vast international reach and national impact, the YMCA in South Australia remains intimately local. In every community we serve in South Australia, we adapt and shape our offering to be relevant and serve the needs of the local area.

The YMCA has grown substantially in South Australia over the last decade, with a growing list of recreation centres, pools, and OSHC's. Over this time the YMCA has built a reputation as a trusted partner for government with a proven ability to professionally manage community assets and deliver impactful programs.

Our extensive partnerships with like-minded organisations allow us to build healthier, happier communities through the provision of health and wellbeing programs that promote community connection, education and development.

Our partners

Loved by the communities we work with

The YMCA is the nation’s largest and most experienced manager and activator of local government recreation facilities. To say that our experience runs deep would be something of an understatement. All around the world “the Y” has been known as the welcoming place in which everybody from the neighbourhood can gather to get fit, swim, play sport, socialise or learn a new skill. In fact we’ve been doing this for 175 years. We are the original, and still, the best.

Reflecting this, our member satisfaction is rated as “Excellent” on the Net Promoter scale across all our community recreation centres, with an average NPS in South Australia of 67. This compares favourably with world leaders in customer satisfaction such as Amazon (69) and Apple (65).

Our partners tell us they appreciate that

  • The YMCA embeds itself within the community, building local connections and partnerships.

The YMCA is not for profit and located in South Australia. In contrast to other providers, all surpluses from operations are reinvested in our mission, across the South Australian communities we partner with.

The YMCA operates beyond the four walls of the centre, listening to community feedback to addressing gaps in physical activity and wellness programs.

The YMCA brings a suite of community programs and like-minded organisations to every community they partner with.

The operation of the Centre, in every way, exceeded Council’s expectations. All Key Performance Indicators were met on time every time, the actual cost to Council will be approximately $100,000 under budget when June is wrapped up, and on top of that there has not been one complaint that has been escalated to Council from the YMCA’s management of the Centre during that 12 months
