Special Events




Join the Y team at Kirby Park on Memorial for a fun filled morning of field day games! We have been "challenged" by Chiseled Studio to our members to the test. Show off how your workouts and group exercise classes have been the best. It's time to put your fitness to the test.

This is all for fun and a great way to get in an awesome workout side-by-side with your favorite instructors and staff. The Y is closed on Memorial but this free, volunteer led event, is just another way we are here to serve our members. Workout before your cookout!

FREE for all YMCA members and employees
Non-Members can join our team for $5
