The YMCA staff is excited to offer high quality weight training equipment to our members. The upgrade supplies equipment for all levels of fitness and allows members to achieve their fitness endeavors.
In May 2022, we renovated the golf simulator room into the Youth Activity Center. Our staff and Board of Directors identified a need to have a space for youth age 10-18 years old that they could take ownership of and use at the YMCA. The Youth Activity Center is equipped with a ping-pong table, foosball table, XBox 360 with Kinect System, board games, and furniture to allow youth space to socialize, relax, and do homework. The space is continuing to evolve and change.
In November 2022, we plan to replace all 4 basketball goals and structures in their entirety. The basketball goals are original to the building and are 40 years old, for the safety of our members and employees they will be replaced prior to the start of the Youth Basketball season.
Other accomplishments in 2022 include the addition of storage for member and guest belongings in the wellness area, new equipment on the Wellness floor, and the addition of TRX straps in the downstairs cardio room. We are also constantly expanding our program offerings for youth and adults. New programs in 2022 included the Father-Daughter Dance, 45 Days of Summer Challenge, Youth Competitive Basketball, Youth Wellness Training Program and many new group exercise classes and times.
With your support, we can continue to serve McCook and surrounding areas. We thank you in advance for your donations that help make the McCook YMCA a pillar of our fine community.
In our ongoing quest to serve our members and the community, the YMCA of McCook is committed to provide quality experiences. In doing so, our organization has identified necessary improvements to be made in our Aquatics, Youth Development, Fitness, and Sports Departments. These include equipment upgrades as well as facility updates and renovations. In order to remain relevant in our industry and to provide exceptional service to our members and guests, it is critical that we work to improve our amenities in an effort to continually promote healthy and active lifestyles.
An evaluation of our current internal components has shown we have several deficiencies in mechanical processes, technology, overdue maintenance, and out of date equipment. Our charge is to address these shortcomings by strategically updating the aforementioned elements in a professional manner that will enhance member experience and attract a new audience. We thank you in advance for your contributions and commitment to help us make the YMCA a pillar of our fine community for generations to come.
