What We Do
The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
The YMCA of Portsmouth offers a variety of programs and classes for people of all ages and abilities:
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
The Portsmouth YMCA aquatics department builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities through programs that enrich the lives of all ages. We offer two indoor aquatic facilities to accommodate your personal needs; whether it be recreational or therapeutic. Our programs focus on personal safety, health and wellness, and quality family time. Our trained staff puts safety first and is ready to welcome you and your family to the Y.
In communities across the nation, the Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, millions of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.
