This is a very difficult time in our lives. Many of us have been going non-stop to serve you and our community. We appreciate your commitment to our Y. We remain hopeful for the future. Thank you for your patience.

The Y needs you and your membership now even more than ever.

While we are temporarily closed, all memberships are on hold. We are not charging your account.

To maintain your Y membership through this crisis. Please email us and tell us it’s ok to keep your membership active.

You’ve enjoyed all that the Y offers and brings to you and your family. With your help, we will return to the Y that we all love.

Please stay safe and healthy.




A Message from Our Y Senior Vice President & COO

Dear Y Members, please watch and listen to the video message from Tim Bartlett, Central Connecticut Coast YMCA, Senior Vice President & COO.

The Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA, a branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA, needs you to maintain your membership!

All of us are absorbing the impact of COVID-19 on our lives and figuring out how to adjust to this sudden and dramatically changing situation. Here at the Y, we are working very hard during this crisis to continue to serve our communities’ most fragile people and families, retain our staff and pay rather significant fixed costs until we can all get back to our normal lives.

The Y needs your membership now even more than ever. While we are temporarily closed, all memberships are on hold. No accounts will be charged. However, the single biggest way for us to maintain stability is for you to maintain your Y membership through this crisis.  Please email us and tell us it’s ok to keep your membership active.

We know this situation has also impacted you and your family! We’re here for you.

  • We are providing you with hours of online content so you can continue to work out and participate in fitness challenges.
  • We are supporting you as parents and caregivers, suddenly home with your children, with fun and educational activities. Even read aloud stories from their favorite YMCA staff!
  • Our supportive housing operations in Bridgeport and Ansonia continue to operate and provide much needed social services for our at-risk homeless population.
  • Your Y leadership team is working around the clock to regroup and develop ways to serve you, your family and our community during this uncertain time.
  • We are working closely with local and state agencies to deploy our associates to reopen several child care centers to provide emergency child care for hospital staff and first responders who are fighting non-stop to combat this virus.
  • We are working with local agencies to combat food insecurity and supply issues.

You’ve enjoyed all that the Y offers and brings to you and your family in the past. With you, we hope to return to the Y that we all love. Right now, we need you to please stay with us. Please keep your Y membership. The Y is here for you and for our community. 

  • The Y is funded primarily through your membership, your program fees and state grants.
  • With our focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y served 74,269 kids, families, and adults in twenty-five towns and cities including Bridgeport and New Haven.
  • Our Y gave over $3M in scholarships and financial aid to our community in 2019, all as a result of donations to our Annual Campaign.
  • In 2019, 3,719 committed volunteers donated 47,591 hours of their time to help the Y fulfill its mission!
  • We are a completely independent, locally run non-profit organization. The temporary closure of our 12 Ys, our 38 school based after school and community school programs, and our 3 preschool centers has forced us to discontinue hours for over 900 people. These great people include Y fitness and group exercise instructors, front desk greeters, swim instructors, after school staff and many more you know and love.

Thank you for your participation in the Y now and always. Please stay safe and healthy.


Y Temporarily Closed – For Your Health

At the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA, the safety and well-being of our members, volunteers, staff and our broader community have always been our top priority.

We have been diligently monitoring all national and local updates surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation. In order to best ensure the health of our entire Y community, we are following Governor Lamont’s order to temporarily close the Lakewood-Trumbull Y, 20 Trefoil Drive, Trumbull, to the public effective March 16, 2020.

During this closure, you can expect regular updates from us via email, on our website or Facebook.

We are asking everyone to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and take their own measures to protect themselves, including not putting themselves in situations with large crowds or where they come in close contact with others, staying home if they do not feel well, frequently washing their hands with soap and water and covering their coughs and sneezes.

We will continue to work with the health department and local physicians to determine what other actions, if any, would be prudent on our part and when it will be safe to reopen our facilities.

Thank you for understanding as we navigate this evolving and challenging situation.

FAQs 

We understand that you may have questions about the temporary closure of the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA:

When will the Y open again? 
We have planned a two-week closure at this time. The Y will reassess the situation and will update members regarding the status of facilities and programming.

Have any Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA members tested positive for COVID-19? 
No. At this time, we are not aware of any members, volunteers, staff, or participants who have tested positive for COVID-19.

What is the Y doing during the closure? 
Several Y branches are working with the State of Connecticut, area hospitals and emergency personnel to provide child care services to their families.

During this time the Y will be doing a deep clean of each program areas, locker rooms, restrooms as well as all public spaces in our facility.

We will be sharing at some of your favorite group exercise classes in video format and programs from our Y Personal Trainers no later than Wednesday, March 18.

Continue to check our website and Facebook page for any updates.

What about my membership? 
We know that you will not be able to use the Y like you did before. Therefore, we will NOT draft membership dues on the 1st or 15th if the YMCA is not open. There is no need to put your membership on hold. Once we reopen, we will again draft per our policy on the 1st or 15th depending on your schedule.

What can I do to help the YMCA continue to help our community? 
Keep your membership active. If you would, we’d ask that you please email or call the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA lstruzik@cccymca.org, 203 445 9633 to CONTINUE your membership. This will allow us to continue to support our neighbors who are struggling.
