The Niles-Buchanan YMCA has policies in place for the benefit and welfare of our members, guests and our organization. All policies are approved by the Niles-Buchanan YMCA Board of Directors.
Cell Phone Usage
Cell phones are NOT permitted in our locker rooms and are asked to be set aside while attending fitness classes.
Instantly connect to our schedules, programs, and facility status while on the go. You can also customize the App to receive instant push notifications to alert you about your favorite activities. The Mobile App will also allow you to use your smart phone for quick check-in. It is available to download from the App Store or Google Play. The Mobile App is FREE.
We ask that Y members and guests respect others and dress appropriately at all times while in the facility. We ask that you wear only athletic shoes while in the gymnasium. All other workout areas require proper workout shirt (Midriffs must be covered), shorts or pants, athletic shoes and socks. Clothing must be clean; muddy items are not permitted. Clothing with abusive language or graphics that are offensive will not allowed in the facility at any time.
The Y building will be closed if a citywide weather emergency is declared, in that event, all programs and classes along with the building will be closed/canceled. If the Niles Community Schools are closed, our Learning Tree Preschool will also be closed. Every effort will be made to run classes and programs. Make-up classes will not be rescheduled due to cancellation factors out of our control, such as inclement weather. Please check WSBT, FOX, Facebook, and/or your Mobile App for any closings.
By signing the Release, Indemnification and Hold Harmless Agreement, members and non-members agree that if they are injured or their property is damaged during participation in Y activities, then they may be found by a court of law to have waived their right to maintain a lawsuit against the parties being released on the basis of any claim for negligence.
