About the Central Coast YMCA

Formed in 1989, the Central Coast YMCA began with the merger of two independent YMCAs; the Salinas Community YMCA (founded in 1921) and the Watsonville Family YMCA (founded in 1898). Originally a USO built in 1941, with the purpose of supporting American troops during World War II, the YMCA of the Monterey Peninsula joined the association in 1990. In 1998 the South County YMCA became the fourth branch in the association, extending its service area to the residents of south Monterey County. The YMCA of San Benito County became the fifth and most recent addition to the association in 1999.

CCYMCA is an independent, private, nonprofit corporation, a part of the YMCA of the USA, but responsible for its own policies, programs, and budgets. It employs 27 full-time employees, about 225 part-time employees, and 120 volunteers who impact approximately 40,000 people in Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey counties.

SALINAS YMCA Community Fund Raiser Exercise Event April 13, 2019

The SALINAS YMCA FAMILY CENTER will host an Exercise Extravaganza event on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Salinas, CA, March 18, 2019 – The SALINAS YMCA FAMILY CENTER will host an Exercise Extravaganza event on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Want to try a HIIT, CYCLE, YOGA or Zumba Class? A minimum donation of $25 allows you entrance to our Exercise Extravaganza. You can participate in any of our High Intensity, Interval Training (HIIT), cycle, yoga, and Zumba classes during this 5 hour event. FREE CHILD CARE is available from 9:00AM – 12:00pm

All donations go directly to our 2019 Annual Campaign. The fundraising case this year is simple and basic. Children need healthy, productive activities and safe places to go and families who are struggling through difficult times need support. Without the Y after school programs, many children in the central coast would have nowhere to go for homework help, mentoring, physical activity and other children to interact with to build strong character. We are committed to these children and with donors, volunteers & members support and fundraising, community events like these, we can continue to be there for them after school and throughout the summer with camps, sports programs and aquatic programs.

More details are available at the front desk and on-line at www.centralcoastymca.org. Contact Tyler Smith or Brittany Loisel at 831-758-3811 for more information.
