We’re Excited to See You Soon!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your patience, positivity and continued commitment to the Soundview Family YMCA, a branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA. We have missed you and look forward to seeing you real soon!

As we prepare to reopen our facility, we thank you for responding to our Member Survey. Your thoughts and feedback have been essential in our planning process.

When your Y opens at the end of June, we will be following health and safety guidelines set forth by the State of Connecticut, Governor Lamont, the CDC, our Health Department and other YMCAs. As always, we will maintain the highest health and safety standards for you, our volunteers and staff. Our staff is already preparing and training so that we can practice our new safety protocol and procedures.

Yes, we’ll look different – everything looks different, right now. All of us will be wearing masks and keeping our social distance. We’ll be asking you to sanitize your hands before entering (and before/after touching other surfaces). The Member Service Welcome Desk will have a protective shield similar to those you’ve seen in grocery stores. Our cleaning protocols will increase to ensure surfaces and areas are sanitized between usage. As always, we’ll be asking you to help us wipe down equipment before and after use.

We greatly appreciate those who were able to maintain their membership and those who donated to our Covid-19 Relief Fund, especially during this incredibly challenging time! Thanks to your support, our weekly food drives allowed us to collect almost 1,200 pounds of food, over $300 in monetary donations and grocery store gift cards so far for our local food pantries (and we’re still going!).  Operation Compassion has made 33 home deliveries in need of groceries as well! Each week we have been making wellness calls to our members and have made over 780 phone calls!  We have done virtual activities for our youth and virtual fitness classes and currently offer 18 live classes via Zoom each week! We were here for our community when they needed us the most.

During our time away, we deep cleaned our Y!  We scrubbed all the equipment, dusted high and low, cleaned all of the windows and the power washed the pool floors!  We painted the lobby and vestibule to be fresh and inviting when you arrive too!  Even before you walk in, you’ll notice the beautiful flowers in the front gardens too! Our Y is more than just the building, it’s you – our members, who come together for wellness, to learn, to nurture each other and strengthen our community.

We look forward to welcoming you back in just a few short weeks!
