Y Members, we’re so glad you’re back! Our reopening has brought back hope and a celebration of community. As the YMCA expands our offerings, our main goal is to maintain a healthy and safe environment for all.

The YMCA of the Chippewa Valley is following guidelines from the CDC, Wisconsin Economic Development Council (WEDC) and County Health Departments. With these guidelines, many of our offerings have a capacity limit to accommodate social distancing. The Y wants to ensure you can attend a group exercise class, swim laps or shoot hoops when you come in so we are introducing our new reservation system. It’s simple to navigate. And you’ll know your spot is waiting for you when you arrive at the Y. 

Instructions and answers to your reservation questions are as follows:

What offerings require reservations? 

  • Open/Lap swim 
  • Family swim zone 
  • Group Exercise classes
  • Basketball hoops (Eau Claire location only. Chippewa Falls location is on a first come, first serve basis)
  • Racquetball
