The YMCA’s Victor branch will be undergoing interior renovations this summer that will result in a change to the facility’s health and wellness footprint. This will take place Saturday, June 23 through Labor Day.
While the facility is unavailable to members, Victor members can access all other YMCA of Greater Rochester facilities.
The YMCA of Greater Rochester has been providing Y services to the Victor community since 1998. Since then, the Victor community has evolved and changed, and so has participation at the Victor YMCA. During the past decade, the Y’s Victor facility has experienced a decline in membership and decreased participation during the evening and afternoon hours.
In response to these factors, as well as the fact that more than 70% of those who utilize the Victor facility are active older adults, the YMCA of Greater Rochester will be bolstering its morning programming and eliminating afternoon and evening hours.
The Y is making these changes to meet the growing demand for programming during peak participation times and serve seniors in a more meaningful way. Core programming members rely on, such as Child Watch, group exercise classes and small group training, will continue to be provided. The school-age Before and After School Program, servicing the Victor Center School District, will continue without interruption.
At the Y, strengthening community is our mission. We believe that positive, lasting personal relationships can only come about when we all work together. That is why YMCA management has met with Victor town officials, assuring them the Y remains committed to the Victor community. Victor YMCA staff members have been informed of this plan and are being offered similar employment at other YMCA facilities or camps for the summer.
We sincerely thank our valued YMCA members for their understanding during this transition.
