WELCOME TO THE

MERRIMACK VALLEY YMCA

Every day the Y’s impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice,

when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for a

common good. As a 501(C) (3) volunteer-founded, volunteer-led organization

the intent is to foster social connectedness, strengthen support networks, and

encourage investment in our communities, which in turn serves to strengthen

the foundations of our community. This is all done at no cost to the neighboring

cities and towns thereby lessening the burdens of government.

Membership dues support everyday operations. However, the Merrimack

Valley YMCA endeavors to secure grants and conduct annual fundraising

campaigns and events, in order to provide financial assistance, charitable

services, and access to people of all income levels. The Merrimack Valley

YMCA provides millions of dollars each year in essential services and financial

assistance initiatives focused on youth development, healthy living and social

responsibility aligned with the unique and diverse needs of the communities

it engages. The Y’s activities have significantly enhanced public access to

fitness, health, educational enrichment and numerous other services; especially

among children, the disabled, the homeless, the needs associated with an aging

community and other at-risk populations.

The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected

and secure children, adults, families and communities.

Access/Membership Restrictions Policy

The protection of members and guests who are participating in programs or

are using YMCA facilities is of paramount concern to the staff of the Merrimack

Valley YMCA. Therefore, we reserve the right to deny access or membership to

any person who:

• is a registered sexual offender.

• has pled guilty to or been convicted of any crime involving sexual abuse.

toddlers learn to be

comfortable in the

water and develop swim

readiness skills through

fun and confidencebuilding

experiences,

while parents learn

about water safety,

drowning prevention,

and the importance of

Students learn personal water

safety and achieve basic swimming

competency by learning two

benchmark skills:

- Swim, float, swim—sequencing

front glide, roll, back float, roll,

front glide, and exit

- Jump, push, turn, grab

Having mastered the fundamentals,

students learn additional water safety

skills and build stroke technique,

developing skills that prevent chronic
