The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA has new technology to help us engage with our Members AND help you manage your YMCA membership on-line.
To make donations please give us a call or stop by the Y.
The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA has transitioned to a new technology partner that is providing the Y with member management, payment processing and other solutions. We’ve transferred our data and now we’re triple checking to ensure it is correct.
We can’t wait to introduce you to the new platform. It’s great! You’ll be able to access your YMCA account from our web site, adjust your contact information and payment methods, make payments, change passwords, easily register for programs and classes and make Annual Campaign Donations.
No worries, somethings will never change! We will always assist you with your YMCA transactions one-on-one, face-to-face at the Y and on the telephone.
We’re working hard to build a Better Us.
At the YMCA we believe that when people experience all that our Y has to offer, they will be drawn into supportive, healthier relationships with one another and their community.
YMCA360 is an on-demand video platform for our Y community. YMCA360 offers 1000+ group exercise classes, youth sports training, well-being classes and more to serve you wherever you are.

Child care programs help youngsters gain self-confidence and social skills while developing positive attitudes about school and learning. Our programs are NAEYC accredited and allow parents to go to work with peace of mind knowing that their children are being cared for in a safe, structured and fun environment. We are committed to providing a safe, loving environment for your child and aspire to meet his/her needs while promoting physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.
Our programs develop weekly curriculum with age-appropriate activities and indoor and outdoor learning experiences. Our program at the Kolbe Education Center participates in the CACFP Food Program to ensure that all children receive healthy meals and snacks throughout the day.
