The YES initiative is part of an Indiana University research study of youth fitness and nutrition. YES is designed to learn how to increase participation in sports, increase physical activity and improve nutrition among middle school youth living in geographic areas where access to physical fitness and recreation facilities may be limited.
The program is made possible through a federal grant funded by the US Office on Women's Health and Office of Minority Health. YMCA youth memberships funded by this grant require enrollment and ongoing participation in the study. Data will be collected on all participants, including activity and nutrition.
National trends in lower sports participation and physical activity are alarming. The Y has a long history of encouraging healthy activity, including sports participation. YES represents an extraordinary opportunity to positively impact the health trajectory of several hundred youth in our community. The YMCA of Greater Louisville is proud to be one of only 18 recipients of the grant. The grant’s focus is on the national decline in youth participation in sports, especially among low-income and minority youth, particularly girls.
Our youth participants must be fifth through seventh graders living in the West Louisville neighborhoods of Russell, California, Portland, Park Hill, Parkland and Park DuValle.
Living areas defined by the federal research grant are within the Ohio River to the north, I-264 to the west, Algonquin Parkway to the south and 9th Street to the east.
The initiative will engage up to 500 youth.
The federal government required that funded programs target federally identified opportunity zones where access to physical fitness and recreation facilities may be limited. These boundaries ensured this requirement was met and that the program site would offer ease of access by foot, bike and public transit.
Yes, all participants will receive a single youth membership, funded by the grant, to the Republic Bank Foundation YMCA and Chestnut Street Family YMCA. Attendance at an enrollment session and continued participation in the program is required to keep the membership.
Your family is welcome to join the Y. Upgrades:
YES Youth Republic Bank Foundation and Chestnut Street Family YMCAs: Free
YES Youth Community Wide: $5 per month
YES Family Republic Bank Foundation and Chestnut Street Family YMCAs: $25 per month
YES Family Community Wide: $40 per month
If you want to add more than two adults onto the YES family membership, those additional adults living in the same household can be added at a cost of $20 per month per person. If your family already has a Y membership, the membership type will be changed to a YES membership under the Republic Bank Foundation YMCA.
You may enroll over the phone, at the Open House or at the Republic Bank Foundation YMCA. Memberships will end when youth are no longer participating in the YES program.
If you're an alum of our Black Achievers Program, please take a moment and provide your contact information. Please enter your information below so that we can connect with you.

He, along with other visionary leaders, sought to prepare young men and women for the global workplace.
No scholastic requirement to enroll.
We offer leadership training seminars, college enrichment, community service projects and special events that include:
College and career fair

Research shows that 75 percent of beginner-swimmer drowning injuries happen in the shallow end. So, the swim testing is a great way to not only improve children's swim skills, but also ensure their safety.
Each swim test will take less than 5 minutes to complete. Once a test has been completed, children receive a breakaway colored necklace at the front desk upon each visit. Necklaces must be returned when leaving the Y.
All children (members and guests) ages 7-13 require a swim test. An optional swim test is available for children ages 5 and 6 upon request. Children enrolled in swim lessons will automatically be tested during class.
Ages 4 and under: A parent or guardian, 18 years or older, must be always in the water within arm’s reach. Proper swim attire is required.
Ages 5-6: A parent or guardian, 18 years or older, must be always on the pool deck.
Ages 7-9: A parent or guardian, 18 years or older, must be present on YMCA property.
Ages 10+: Children of this age may use the pool without a parent present.
Ages 14 and up: May use the entire pool including lap lanes, warm water pools and water fitness classes.
The competitive swimming standard for 1 mile is 1,650 yards. Miles are tracked on the honor system, and you can swim your miles at any of our YMCA locations with pools.
Swim at your own pace or log your miles on the pool deck. The goal is to swim 100 miles in a year and to challenge yourself and fellow Y swimmers to new fitness levels. Laps from other area pools can be logged as part of the 100 miles.
Here's a guide to understanding how to get to a mile:
Clark County Family YMCA: A mile equals 33 laps or 66 lengths. That means 100 miles is 3,300 laps or 6,600 lengths.
Downtown Family YMCA: A mile equals 35 laps or 70 lengths. That means 100 miles is 3,500 laps or 7,000 lengths.
Floyd County Family YMCA: A mile equals 33 laps or 66 lengths. That means 100 miles is 3,300 laps or 6,600 lengths.
Northeast Family YMCA: A mile equals 33 laps or 66 lengths. That means 100 miles is 3,300 laps or 6,600 lengths.
Oldham County Family YMCA: A mile equals 35 laps or 70 lengths. That means 100 miles is 3,500 laps or 7,000 lengths.
Southeast Family YMCA: A mile equals 33 laps or 66 lengths. That means 100 miles is 3,300 laps or 6,600 lengths.
Yes! Depending on location and availability, you may expect swag items to be rewarded at the 25, 50, 75 and 100 milestones. An additional item may be gifted for each additional 100 miles that you've achieved.
Yes! Join the Y to save and enjoy special member prices on swim lessons. You can also find out more about reduced rates through our financial assistance program.
Private classes offer the opportunity to have one-on-one instruction at any level. Private lessons are available at select branches. Please contact your local branch for detailed scheduling and upcoming sessions.
Lessons will be scheduled based on need and each swimmer will have a one-on-one meeting with the instructor to discuss goals and adapt the lessons to encourage success. Schedules vary for each season and additional options may be added as needed.
Keep swimming and save! Swimmers who participate in 4 consecutive sessions of swim lessons will get $10 off the fifth session.
No, we don’t require you to sign a contract. We offer month-to-month personal training, with an option to draft your account on the first of each month. You will have monthly drafts until you decide to discontinue, which will require a five-day advance notification before your draft date to avoid future drafts.
Yes, you may change your draft for the following month to reflect the amount of training sessions you wish to purchase. A five-day advance notification is required to ensure draft is adjusted before your draft date.
You will simply purchase additional individual sessions separately, and you will be given the same rate per session as the draft choice you’ve registered.
You are not able to use a future month’s sessions to add on to a current month. Future sessions are not available until that month occurs.
Yes, we offer partner training that allows two clients to work with a trainer during the same session. The cost is reduced per person, but fee is paid altogether from one source of payment. The payment cannot be broken up between both clients. In this case, one person would pay for the session, and the other person could pay their training partner directly for their portion.
Clients will be able to carry over a maximum of two sessions into the following month if they are not used. No month shall have more than two sessions in addition to the number of sessions paid for in their draft.
Example: If you paid for four sessions in January, but used only two, then two can be carried into February, which means February would have six total sessions (four being paid, two being carried over). In February, if two sessions are used again, still only two sessions can be carried over to March, so March would still only have six sessions (four paid plus two carried over).
Clients shall directly notify their trainer in writing (email/text) with a minimum of 24 hours’ notice of their scheduled session for any cancellations. Under 24 hours’ notice (or no-shows) will result in a used session.
The Y's adult soccer teams form themselves, but individuals are welcome to ask how they can join a current team.
