YMCA Hamilton Recreation Centre

Out There. Around Here.

At YMCA Hamilton Recreation Centre, we welcome everyone!

If you’re keen to take to the basketball court or show your skills with a soccer ball we have got you sorted. If it’s an amazing work out you are after, our first-class group trainings and weight training equipment will give you just what you need.

At Hamilton YMCA we love building strong kids, so we have lots of options for them as well, including preschool dance lessons, gymnastics classes, a great venue for birthday parties, plus cool after school care and holiday programmes too.
