Kingston Moves to Yellow Level Protocols

Dear Members:

As you may know, Kingston and area has been moved into yellow zone Covid protocols. This means that the provincial government and public health now requires that you register to access our facilities.

This will have the biggest impact in group fit classes where participation will be limited to 10 persons per room. Please note that pickleball will also be restricted to 10 persons per room. We will monitor class size and demand and may adjust our schedules if we are able.

The fitness centre has a larger limit of 50 so, for practical purposes, the new protocols shouldn’t affect your use of this area. Registration for use of the pool has already been put into place and this requirement will continue.

You are still able to drop in without pre-registering, however, you will then have to register at the desk when you arrive, and you may be turned away if an area has reached the provincial limit. 

No matter what area you wish to visit, we strongly recommend registering in advance to hold your spot.

Registration is new for all of us and we may encounter a few technical glitches along the way, requiring patience. Please reach out to our staff for assistance. They will be happy to answer your questions or to assist.

We aim to have registration open at noon on Sunday for access beginning on Monday.

You are able to book up to four days into the future.

How to register?

All members were sent an email approximately three weeks ago with a link to activate your YMCA account. If you don’t have the email, or if you would like guidance with registration, please visit our new registration page.

Swimming and karate lessons registration

Registration for these lessons for both Kingston and Brockville are still on track to begin at noon on March 24. You may wish to visit our registration page in advance to review directions on registration.
