You Belong at the Y
When you join the Y you become part of a community committed to changing lives, supporting our neighbors and providing a safe, secure and welcoming place for all. As we begin to emerge from self-isolation, we’re here to help you focus on what matters most: your health, your family and friends, and your community. We’ll give you the motivation and guidance you need to reclaim your health, reach your fitness goals and nurture your well-being.
Currently, we are offering a variety of outdoor, indoor and virtual group exercise classes, 1:1 personal training and nutritional counseling, lap swimming, family swim and water exercise classes, youth and adult sports, teen programs and group swim lessons. Our Wellness Center is open for active, full-facility members ages 14 and up. We also offer a 12-month educational child care program, summer camp and school age child care for the Fanwood-Scotch Plains public schools. Some programs may be limited based on current COVID guidelines and reservations are required for select pool times, group exercise and adult sports. For more information about our current offerings and safety procedures, please visit the Reopening Our Y page.
