Regarding the YWCA’s indoor pool………….


Thanks to the wisdom and foresight of courageous women in Schenectady, NY, the YWCA has been serving Schenectady County women and their families since 1888. The YW’s beautiful building, located at 44 Washington Ave. in the heart of Schenectady’s Stockade district, opened in 1930.  This dignified and graceful building, has served our community for many years.  We have been faced with some major decisions regarding not only repair and renovation work that needs to take place in order to be able to operate the indoor pool in an optimal manner but also the high price tag of daily operation of the pool.  The pool has been closed since June 2009.


The YWCA NENY currently has a strong membership enrolled in the Fitness Programs, including Silver Sneakers® program. The fitness staff continues to work to provide quality fitness programs in the Washington Ave building. Stop by and visit the Wellness Center, some of the equipment has recently been added. A member of the staff will be very happy to give you a tour and fitness orientation to be sure you are getting the most out of your fitness visits.


Thank you for your patience and understanding concerning this matter.
