Want to help us create a happy and safe environment for all who use our gymnasium? Become a volunteer gym attendant.

About the Gym

The YMCA brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs. One important part of our YMCA is our beautiful 100×60 square-foot gymnasium that hosts both members and guests alike on a daily basis. We offer adult recreational leagues and youth sports classes throughout the year. Day to day, the gym can see up to 150 people–whether they are just playing a pickup basketball game during open gym or participating in gymnastic classes. We are in search of an individual who loves the YMCA and wants to keep the gym clean, safe, and happy.

Volunteer Expectations

We welcome volunteer gym attendants who are available to volunteer about 10-15 hours per week. They must be able to relate to all people. Volunteers must also have experience and knowledge of playing, coaching, or teaching sports. A background check is required.

Once approved, volunteers may work in the gym Monday-Friday evenings 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm. 

During classes, Open Gym sessions, and organized leagues, we need your help to ensure that activities run safely while providing first aid as requested. Other duties include:

  • checking equipment daily for safety and needed repairs,
  • set-up/take-down of program equipment,
  • enforcing all gym rules located on the back of the gym schedule and posted throughout the gym, and
  • maintaining cleanliness of the gymnasium.

Expectations of Members and Guests

We hope members and guests look to volunteer gym attendants for more than just a fun and safe experience in the gym. Members and guests can expect the gym attendant to be sensitive to spiritual, mental, and physical development in all stages of life; they can be a source of guidance and support to anyone looking for direction.
