Shiawassee Family YMCA
Government Mandated Fitness Facility Closure
March 16, 3:00pm – March 30, midnight
The Shiawassee Family YMCA was mandated to close by the State of Michigan on March 16, 2020 as part of the COVID-19 prevention measures. We understand many of you may have questions and are providing this resource in anticipation. If you have additional questions that are not answered below, please email email@example.com and include your name, date of birth, and current email so that we can make sure our records are up to date.

Yes! Food distribution will take place daily, Monday – Friday, from 8 – 9am and from 12 – 1pm. Please pull up to the door, stay in your vehicle, and the meals will be brought out to you.
- Will spring soccer still take place?
Yes! Spring soccer will still take place. You may still register your players online at www.shiawasseeymca.org . Dates are subject to change at this point and will be updated as soon as possible.
- Will spring programs still take place?
Yes! All spring programs will still take place. You may still register your children online at www.shiawasseeymca.org . Dates are subject to change and will be updated as soon as possible.

All group exercise classes are currently suspended and will resume as soon as possible.
- What about my personal belongings in my locker?
If you have personal belongings in a locker at the Shiawassee Family YMCA that you would like to pick up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to retrieve them. Please include your full name, date of birth, and current email address.
- How do I stay engaged with the Shiawassee Family YMCA?
If you don’t already, please follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with everything happening at the Y. We are working on offering online opportunities to stay engaged. https://www.facebook.com/ShiawasseeFamilyYmca/
- How do I maintain my active lifestyle?
If you don’t already, please follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with everything happening at the Y. We are working on offering virtual opportunities to work out, fun challenges, and more. We hope you’ll participate with us!
- Can I cancel or put a hold on my membership?
Yes, of course. BUT.....remember we are more than a gym. As a community benefit nonprofit, membership dues are the foundation of our work. Regardless of COVID- 19, there are kids and families we are still trying to serve. The community is counting on the Y, and we are working hard through this crisis to be there as the community needs us. That’s the Y difference.
If you do choose to put a hold on your membership, we are offering it for free, for a maximum two-month hold. Please email email@example.com to request that hold (please include your full name, date of birth, whether you want a one-month or two-month hold, and your current email address). These requests must be received by March 30 in order to ensure a stoppage on the scheduled bank draft.
If you choose to keep your membership active, your dues will be considered a donation to the organization while we remain closed. After this national crisis resolves, we will gladly issue documentation confirming your donation for tax purposes.
We understand your concerns but ask that you continue to be a part of our movement at a critical time like this. It’s easy to forget that membership means more to a Y during this time. Please help us be a part of the solution by keeping your membership active. Only our members can help ensure the future of our continued community impact!
Thank you for your support and understanding during these challenging times. We look forward to continuing to serve you and our community!
