At YMCA Hamilton we offer a wide range of programmes and so there's something for everyone!

YMCA Hamilton has a long history of being a central and influential part of the community, enriching lives and encouraging health and well-being through fitness, education, fun and recreation.

We believe that strong families have fun and stay healthy together. The fitness facilities and programmes on offer at YMCA Hamilton will help to get your family moving together. We have programmes for children and adults and families, a fully equipped fitness centre, group fitness classes and a range of membership options to suit your needs. We also promote and facilitate a variety of community based programmes enjoyed by people from all walks of life and all ages.

It’s so important to give kids the best possible start in life, and that’s why we offer a fantastic range of kids’ programmes. We have gymnastics, Tumbling and Parkour.

We also have 14 sites of cool before and after school care and holiday programmes.

To build strong communities, YMCA Hamilton believes in providing facilities and services to help communities get together including casual use of the basketball courts to shoot some hoops! If you need a venue in Hamilton, whether it’s for a children’s birthday party, sports tournament or corporate functions we can help you out.

At our central location we have free, off-street parking, making our centre an easy option for families and individuals of all ages and fitness levels. Come and check us out – we’d love to meet you and your family!
