We missed you! It’s been hard to be away from the people we care about, but thank you for persevering and doing your part to stay safe and stop the spread of coronavirus. We’ve been carefully planning to reopen our facilities and reactivate key programs in the safest manner possible so you can access the services and support you miss and need the most.
On June 29, 2020, we will be opening our YMCA and operating under the Phase 4 guidelines of restore Illinois. In phase four, our cardio and weight centers can reopen. We will move fitness classes back indoors, and will still require you to sign up in advance for classes. We will also have our locker rooms and showers available to members. Wee Care, open gym, the hot tub, sauna and steam room will remain closed at this time. The Y is only open to active Sterling-Rock Falls Family YMCA members. No Nationwide Members or guests at this time.
Our new hours will be:
Monday-Friday from 6:00AM-6:00PM
Saturday from 8:00AM-12:00PM
Below we outline our modified operations along with a link to some frequently asked questions.
We ask for your continued patience and to be kind to one another. The YMCA core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Faith are shared values between members and staff. We’re all in this together!
KEEPING YOU SAFE
Please be assured that your safety is our number one priority. We’re following guidelines from the CDC, health experts and local officials to ensure our YMCA meets the highest standards of hygiene and safety.
What to Bring
You’ll need your membership card to check in, a mask and water bottle. Our water fountains will not be open.
Wearing a Mask
Wearing a mask is a requirement to enter the Y, although you do not need to wear a mask while exercising. We ask that you sanitize your hands upon entry at check in.
You’ll notice that some of the equipment is not in service. This allows us to provide a safe distance between members using the equipment. YMCA staff will thoroughly clean the equipment after each use and rotate the use of the equipment to allow for full sanitation. We encourage you to wipe down the equipment before and after use for extra precaution.
