Hello Sports Participants and families
 
With the Governor of PA closing schools across the state, We at the Pocono Family YMCA Sports will follow suit and postpone our sports programs; Basketball, Soccer, Fencing, Flag Football, Karate, and Tennis until schools reopen. you will be notified of the start-up and of course, we will be crediting all sports accounts to continue with each sport/lesson plans, etc.. when we return to action.  

Thank you for partnering with us to provide the healthiest environment possible for our children to thrive. We appreciate you choosing the Y, and are here to support you and answer questions as needed. The Pocono Family YMCA is deeply committed to the health and wellness of all. We will continue to monitor the situation, communicate openly, and support you and your family by providing safe and nurturing places for everyone we serve. We are stronger together, and together we will get through this.

If you haven't given me your child's shirt size please forward me an email with that information thanks again.
