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.



Six years ago, Joanne was injured and needed to do something to help with her recovery. Her first thought was the Y—and even though she has since recovered from her injury, she hasn’t stopped being part of our Y family! “I have to tell you, I was born and raised at the Y in New Kensington, and I learned to swim here. And after swimming, my sister and I would stay and play ping pong. The Y was our place to be, and I hope it’s still that way for the kids in our community today.”


Our doors are open to you for Community Outreach Week:  October 17-21!
Bring your friends, family and neighbors, and experience the Y! We invite the community to enjoy FREE use of both Branches for the week, including group exercise classes, swimming (New Ken Branch), weight and cardio equipment, raffles, chair massages, and more. Whether you’re looking to get healthy, stay fit, meet new friends, or just decompress and recharge, the Y has a wide range of activities for everyone!

Looking for a family-friendly Halloween activity for your kids to take part in? Join us at the Y on Friday, October 21st for a "spooktacular" evening! The Kiski Valley Branch is hosting our annual Boo Bash! event from 6:00-7:30pm. This free event combines trick-or-treating, family activities, costume contests, and more! We'll end the evening with a movie:  Transylvania. Join us...if you dare!... and have a fab-BOO-lous Halloween! (This event is open to the public; families are encouraged to bring treats to share with our trick-or-treaters.)

What do you get when you combine bowling and the Y? Bowling 4 the Kids! Join us on Saturday, November 5th from 1-4 pm at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell and not only will you have a great time, but you'll also help raise funds to support the Y's scholarship program. Proceeds from this event help ensure that no child, family or adult is turned away because of an inability to pay for programs and services. For more information or to register, download the packet and get started today!


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—October 18; Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow—to get in on the fun! 




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.
