YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley to host open house

Posted

The YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley is inviting community members to try the YMCA for free Oct. 15-22.

The fall Open House event will be held in both the Rome and Oneida branches.

What does it mean to “Try the Y” for free?

Everyone age 16 or older with photo ID (individuals under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult) will be able to:

  • Swim or try a water exercise class;
  • Attend fitness classes – everything from Silver Sneakers and Spin, to Zumba;
  • Try out the weight rooms and cardio equipment for teens and adults;
  • Talk to staff, instructors and trainers;
  • Use our child care services available while you work out; and
  • Learn about our youth and adult leagues such as archery, basketball and pickleball.

“The YMCA has a lot to offer and we encourage individuals and families to take advantage of a week of free access,” said Nikki Smith, Rome YMCA membership director. “In addition to talking with staff and instructors, it is a good time to meet our members and learn why they come to the Y for friendship, fun and overall wellness.”

The Oneida branch will kick off Open House week with mini classes, fencing, archery and cooking demonstrations on Saturday, Oct. 15. The kick-off event is from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Special guests include a few furry guests from Wanderers Rest, story time with Oneida Public Library’s Megan Gillander and Paula Orr from Madison-Oneida Library,” said Rebecca Rahauiser, Oneida YMCA membership director. “A complete list of kick-off activities is available at the Oneida Y.”

Join the YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley, in either Oneida or Rome, during Open House week, and save half the joiners fee. In addition, the first 100 individuals or families in both Rome and Oneida will receive a free T-shirt. The first 50 receive an additional coffee certificate from Oneida’s Hipster Café.

“We are eager to invite our neighbors into our ‘house’, said YMCA CEO Hank Leo. “We are proud of the wide range of wellness opportunities we offer to children and adults.”

He said, “We aren’t forgetting about our current members during Open House week. They will receive two free guest passes to give to a friend or family member to use the Y at another time. We’re entering an exciting time for both Oneida and Rome branches as we prepare for a bigger and better future.”

Pool, gym and class schedules can be found on the YMCA’s website at ymcatrivalley.org
