This YMCA opened its doors on June 3, 1971. It was the first modern YMCA facility built on the Peninsula. The upstairs fitness center and 3 racquetball courts were added in 1977 along with the outdoor track, and in May of 2003, renovations expanded the fitness center, added a new Child Watch room and Teen Center, and added a lift. The outdoor pavilion was built as an Eagle Scout project. We're located near downtown Newport News and serve both business and family communities.
