Welcome Back to the Y!


The YMCA of Southeast Texas is now open in accordance with the guidelines provided by the OpenTexas Task Force.



Please help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 by staying home if you’re feeling sick, keeping kids home if they’re showing any symptoms of illness, and cleaning exercise equipment before and after every use. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

  • Staff will be wearing masks and gloves.
  • Members must wear glove (fingertip to wrist) while exercising in the weight room.
