Welcome to the

Valley Points
Family YMCA

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.

At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.



The Summer Olympics are coming to a close, but there has been so much to be proud of as we support and cheer for Team USA. Whether you’re interested in swimming, track & field, gymnastics, basketball or volleyball, the Olympics have featured wonderful stories of spirit, sportsmanship and accomplishments that make all of us proud.  


At the Y, many people come through our doors to utilize the equipment, swim, socialize, or participate in group exercise classes. In some cases, though, people come to the Y for very specific reasons, such as practicing the sport they love. Jerry Baylor fits the latter category, and we’d like to introduce him to you...


If you like to read and are a member of the Y, this is the club for you! The book club members select the readings and meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm for discussion at the Kiski Valley Branch. Book lists are selected approximately six months in advance. Join us at the next meeting—September 20; Fates & Furies by Lauren Groff—to get in on the fun!

Ten years ago, Merle Sober joined the Y after having heart surgery. He had never dealt with “machines” before when doing a workout. These “organized” machines took time to learn, but he was more than willing to take the time to learn each one of them. Sober stated, “My doctors told me that I had no restrictions, so I knew it was time to really get up and do something.”


The Y is hosting a youth triathlon at the Kiski Area High School for kids ages 7 to 15 on September 24, 2016! Preparation is important, however, which is why a summer training program will be offered. The fundamentals of building skill and endurance in runninng, biking and swimming will be taught. Each child must have goggles, a bike, helmet, and running shoes. See the flyer and/or call the Kiski Valley Branch at 724-845-1968 to learn more!

The Y is committed to providing programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We make every effort to ensure that no one is turned away due to age, income or background. Click to read more about our financial assistance opportunities.
