STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY IS OUR CAUSE

The La Porte County Family YMCA is a leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We are a powerful association of men, woman and children of all ages and from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of our community. 

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Our Y ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do our important work, our Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders. 

Our Y believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community. Every day our impact is felt when a mentor inspires a child, when an individual makes a healthy choice and when the community comes together for the common good. 

Our Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. Be a part of a cause committed to moving people and communities forward.

PICKLEBALL

It’s not about Pickles! Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic ball (waffle ball) and composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.  It can be played in singles or doubles format (like tennis, but on a modified court with modified equipment). Recommended for ages 14 and up… Courts will be available when classes are not in session. Please reserve your court with a Member Connection Staff at the front desk.  Mondays and Thursdays:  9:00-11:00 a.m. in Swanson Gym.



 

The Y only issues cash refunds if a program is cancelled for any reason other than weather related.  There are no refunds or credits issued for weather related cancellations. Credits are given only if there is a medical reason. A doctor’s note must be provided in order to receive the credit.
