spread cheer this holiday season

Help those less fortunate in our community by donating coats, food and toys to our annual holiday drives. The difference you can make this holiday season can be as simple as a warm body, full stomach and grateful heart.

Food Drive: Nov. 3 - Nov. 19
Donate canned vegetables, rice, instant mashed potatoes, stuffing, other non-perishable foods, gift certificates and even cash to give local families something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Angel Tree Toy Drive: Nov. 20 - Dec. 16
When you visit our Y after November 20th, make sure you stop by our Angel Tree and help fill the Christmas wishes of a local child.


Saluting Our Heroes

Military Appreciation Month

Deployment can be a stressful and uncertain time for our nation’s servicemen and women and their families. YMCA Silver Spring is proud to welcome all Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve and Veteran military, along with their families, to enjoy a free week of family fun and fitness. Click HERE to download your FREE Military Appreciation 7-day guest pass. You will need to print out a copy of or show the pass on your phone at our registration desk. With this pass, you and your family are welcome to unlimited 7 day access to YMCA Silver Spring during November 2014.*

Members, we will also honor military men and women all month long through our Salute Our Heroes wall. Please stop by and contribute and/or pay tribute to the names showcased in our lobby. On November 19th, we will also host special military-style classes (wear military workout clothes to class!). It’s our way of giving back to those who dedicate themselves to serving our country.

*Verification of Active Military ID or DD214 is required to use this pass.

At our Open House, you’ll discover all that and more! Activities will include:

  • Total Body Exercise Class
  • Zumba with Marie
  • Core Conditioning

Home of the YSS Piranhas!

The Piranhas are a competitive swim team that competes year round in both YMCA and USA Swimming leagues. We provide a value centered program based around the YMCA's four core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We use these values in our mission to develop swimmers of all ability levels to perform at their greatest potential. Our professional coaches emphasize a team environment along with the stroke technique and work ethic needed to succeed in competitive swimming.  Please visit our website for more information


free swim lessons for families who qualify

Swim lessons not only keep kids safe in the water, they can also be the first step in building confidence, social skills and healthy living. We are excited to learn your child wants to swim! Through the generosity of Shannon’s Fund, a scholarship opportunity named in memory of Shannon Hawkins (one of our beloved aquatics instructors), we are able to provide free swim lessons for youth and teens between the ages of 6 and 17. In order to qualify for the funds, recipients must have little to no swimming skills and demonstrate a financial need.

To apply, please fill out this application and return it to Member Services.
