Thank you for your support of the Yates Community Center!
We have had an exciting and busy first year at the new fitness center!
The new Community Fitness Center at 467 North Main Street is open and over 100 people are working out and getting healthy each day! The fitness center is fully equipped with state of the art fitness equipment, personal trainers, Yoga & Pilates classes and weight loss programs.
The Community Building at 463 North Main Street is renovated and open for community programming, educational opportunities, classes and meeting space. Programs such as “You’re Welcome” offers customer service certification along with other educational classes and the “Girls on the Run” Program promotes health and wellness for youth.
Plus, the fitness center and the community building are not the only initiatives of the Yates Community Center.
We need your help to expand the Yates Community Center Complex!
- YCRR has recently purchased, with an ongoing payment plan, 12.8 acres north and adjacent to the Community Center property. YCRR has partnered with Youth Lacrosse and Youth Soccer and received a $500,000 grant from New York State Parks & Recreation to develop the land into much needed sports fields with picnic pavilions, expanded driveways and parking areas.
- Youth Lacrosse built a new Lacrosse Box next to the fitness center at 467 North Main Street. The 2017 Summer Box program was a great success.
- YCRR is also lengthening its walking trails through the scenic woods around the property. The expanded trail is open for your enjoyment. Come take a walk down to Jacobs Creek and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine!
- YCRR’s future plan includes a field house with a half court gymnasium and discussions about the feasibility of a community pool.
