WE ARE OPEN! Salinas, San Benito & Watsonville YMCAs are open with limited capacity



Thank you for staying with us during these incredibly challenging times.

The Salinas, Watsonville Family and San Benito YMCAs are open and welcome all Y members, following updated guidelines of the CDC, state and local health agencies. The Salinas, Watsonville Family and San Benito YMCAs are allowed to open with indoor modifications and a limited capacity. Salinas, Watsonville Family and San Benito Ys also allows all Central Coast YMCA members to use the facility while their branch is closed. As we welcome the community back to the Y, we want to assure you that the safety of all our members, programs participants, staff and volunteers is our number ONE priority.

We have followed guidance from the CDC and local health agencies to update our policies, practices and procedures to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness, hygiene and make appropriate accommodations for social distancing, so that every person who walks through our doors can stay safe and protected while getting back to what matters most: your health, your family, friends and your community.

This means things will look and feel a little different.

When you come back to the Y this is what you can expect:

Equipment has been rearranged to accommodate social distancing

The facility, rooms and classes will have capacity limitations

Check-in procedures for Members and Kids Zone have been modified

Equipment cleaning has been adjusted; please clean BEFORE and AFTER use

Fitness Class schedule has been updated and modified to accommodate social distancing.

Floor markers to facilitate spacing

Increased staff on the fitness floors to sanitize and disinfect equipment throughout the day.

Staff will wear PPE where appropriate 


The Central Coast YMCA is more than just a fitness center, membership more than access to a building. The Y is about providing childcare, helping serve food to families who otherwise would go hungry, and deliver essential food and items to the seniors in our communities. The YMCA is so much more than a gym, we are a cause.
