Family Programs



At the Sandusky County YMCA, we believe in not only building strong spirit, mind and body, but also building strong families.  A family that plays together stays together.  Our family programs are a way for families to spare special time together having fun and creating memories that last a lifetime.  There are many activities you and your family can do at our Y to create your own family fun!  Look for our specialized programs will be offered seasonally.  See you at the Y!


Many times throughout our day we have designated open swim time.  This is a time members are able to use our pool for leisure.  Children who are able to successfully pass our swim test may use the deep end and diving board.  For your safety, those who cannot pass the swim test or those who use swim assistance gear must stay in the shallow end.  Swim assistance apparatuses may be used ONLY if they are US Coast Guard approved (vest and belts).  Blow up arm bands and rings are NOT approved.  For your convenience, our swim float belts are available for purchase at the front desk.  What a great time to come and enjoy the pool!  For a current pool schedule, please see the schedule tab on our web page, or click below to download the latest copy.

There are times throughout our day when our basketball courts are available for open gym time.  Open gym time is a time for our members to use the court space for shooting, pick-up games, and other exercise activities.  Basketballs are available at the front desk in various sizes.  Due to the limited number of quality open gym balls, collateral must be left at the desk to borrow.  Once you return your ball, you can then retrieve your item.  Please note: no batons, footballs nor baseballs and bats are permitted in the Y facility.

There are times throughout our day when our Soccer court is available for open play.  Open court time is a time for our members and their children to use the space for drills and free play.  We ask you please be courteous and limit usage to one hour to allow others to use the space as well.  We do have a small number of Soccer balls available at the front desk, collateral left in exchange is appreciated.

For those wishing to utilize our Tennis court, please check for time availability at the front desk.  Permanent court time rental is also available to hold the court.




Our low-cost quality time opportunities for parents (or grandparents) and children to bond and have loads of fun doing it!  Held many times throughout the year, a new and exciting theme is chosen for each.  Dances, talent shows, movie or game nights are some of the most popular themes.  Check our information board for the current family fun night flyer!
