Stay With Us

At the YMCA of South Hampton Roads, everything we do is guided by our Mission and our commitment to serve and support the community. This is even more critical now. When you belong to the Y, you’re not only a member of a health and wellness facility, you’re a member of a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening our community. In difficult times, our YMCA pivots in response to community needs and finds ways to use our resources to offer solutions.

We're continuing to follow the mandates and recommendations of local, state and national officials, and because of that, YMCA of South Hampton Roads locations will be closed until April 23.


Your membership helps support our efforts to meet the critical needs in our community during this crisis. This outbreak has created enormous uncertainty for us all, but how we respond is within our control. As soon as it became apparent that our Y needed to change course to support our community, we did. Our teams immediately mobilized to explore ways to support you and our community.

By continuing to be a part of our Y you’re helping us deploy and expand these resources and services.

Food Distribution 
We are partnering with the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore to distribute food to children and families in need.

Child Care 
We are working with community leaders to provide child care options for essential personnel—those who need it most. Starting Thursday, we will be providing care for medical personnel and first responders.

Family Resources 
With recent school closures, families are adjusting to a new normal. It can be overwhelming to contemplate what to do with new-found time. We have compiled educational and fun resources for parents and children.

Virtual Resources 
We continue to share resources to keep our members and participants safely connected, active and healthy during this time in spirit, mind and body, including access to the online workout video library.

But we can't do it alone. Our community is counting on you.

Membership Options

Stay With Us


By keeping your membership active during this time we can remain fully focused on our efforts to help our community stay strong in spirit, mind and body. If you choose to keep your membership active, we are deeply grateful for your generosity. You don’t need to take any action to retain this status.


Thank you so much for staying with us.

Draft To Donation


Convert your membership to a tax-deductible donation to help your community during this time. Your monthly membership draft will remain the same, and when we resume normal operations, your donation will end. At that time, we’ll convert you back to regular membership. The YMCA will provide a tax receipt of your charitable donation at the end of the year.


Thank you for your support during this time of uncertainty.

Membership Hold


If you wish to put your membership on hold during the suspension, please fill out the membership hold form. As soon as our Ys reopen, your membership will automatically resume.


Thank you and we look forward to serving you again soon.
