Schedule A Safety Tour

Clean. Safe. Ready.

The South Shore YMCA has gone above and beyond to exceed CDC and state requirements in order to create a safe environment for our members to improve their health.

Come in for a Safety Tour and you’ll see changes designed for healthy physical distancing, the spacing of fitness equipment, ample access to hand sanitizer and sanitizer stations, and significant cleaning and disinfecting of equipment and activity areas throughout the day.

Members and staff are smiling under our masks to keep each other safe.  We have limited the number of people in our buildings to give you plenty of distance and space to exercise, with group exercise classes now held in large, open, well-ventilated spaces like our gymnasium and turf areas, or outdoors whenever possible.

Virtual Tours

Come see how clean, safe and ready we are to help you get moving and active in 2021 for a Healthy New Year! Join South Shore YMCA Chief Operating Officer, Trevor Williams, as he takes you on a virtual tour of our Emilson Y and Quincy Y branches. If you have never been to our Y before, or you haven’t been in a while, schedule a Safety Tour and come see us. We’ll be smiling under our masks!

The South Shore YMCA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening the communities we serve. With a focus on youth development, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back to the community, your participation in your local Y will bring about meaningful change not just within yourself, but in your community, too.

  • Families come together to have fun and spend quality time together.
  • Children and teens play and develop self-confidence while feeling supported and a sense of belonging.
  • Adults connect with friends, pursue interests and learn to live healthier.

  • We all build relationships that further our sense of belonging and purpose.
