Start the New Year off with a splash! YMCA Alexandria will host our first Polar Plunge, so don’t miss out on the fun. Warm up in the lobby afterwards with hot chocolate, coffee and special treats. Swim assessments will also be offered for those interested in swim lessons or our Sea Dragons Swim Team.

Open to members and guests!


This Fall, your Y on Monroe Avenue will glow. We are thrilled to share that our pool and wellness floor have undergone extensive renovations. The wellness floor (re-opened Sept. 22) features a new layout and new equipment including Treadmills, Ellipticals and Adaptive Motion Trainers!

We will also be introducing the Cool Kids Club for kids ages 4-12 later this year. Construction began November 5th - get a glimpse to the right. Stay tuned for our Grand Opening Activities!

We hope these improvements help our Y grow with our community’s needs.
