Inclement Weather Procedure:
Cancellation of Group Exercise/Water Exercise and Youth Classes: The Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area always keeps the best interest of our staff and members in mind when it comes to safety and travel during dangerous road conditions. To ensure the safety of our staff and members, during inclement weather we have found it necessary to cancel classes and programs based on the local school district schedule. To help you plan your visit to the Y, please review the following guidelines:
In the event of a State of Emergency issued by the Governor of New York for our area, the YMCA may close based on the discretion of the CEO.
During inclement weather, we will base our decision to run morning Group Exercise and Youth Classes on the schedule of the Queensbury School District.
- If the school issues a 1 or 2-hour delay, classes will be cancelled until 11:00 a.m. (only if the school is delayed because it is deemed unsafe to travel on the roads i.e. Snow/Water /Ice Accumulation).
- If the school closes but the Y is open, classes will be cancelled until 11:00 a.m. (Please note that 11:00 a.m. classes will run)
- If further cancellations are needed throughout the day, the Y will use the following schedule:
- Classes beginning at 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 pm will be determined by 9:30 am.
- Classes beginning after 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 pm will be determined by 11:30 a.m.
- Classes beginning after 4:00 p.m. will be determined by 2:30 p.m.
- All Saturday class determinations will be made by 5:30 a.m. that morning. (Swim Lessons will be determined by 7:00 a.m.).
- All Sunday class determinations will be made by 6:30 a.m. that morning.
Team - Team Practices will be of the discretion of the Head Coach. Coaches will notify participants separately if their practices will be running.
Early Learners/Preschool/Music Movement and More – In the event that Queensbury School District (QSD) is on a 1 or 2 hour delay due to inclement weather, AM Preschool, Early Learners, and Music Movement and More will all be cancelled. PM Preschool will run as scheduled. IF QSD is closed due to inclement weather, there will be no AM/PM Preschool, Early Learners or Music Movement and More.
All other Programs or Classes will be held or cancelled on a case-by-case basis.
Please note that make up classes for cancellation of classes due to inclement weather will be at the discretion of the Program Director.
Change in class schedules due to inclement weather will also be posted on the Y’s Facebook page, our Mobile App through push notification, as well as our website at www.glensfallsymca.org.more»

In the upcoming weeks you will begin to see some rolling out of new offerings and benefits for your family membership holders, starting with early registration for our Spring Programs. Traditionally we allow members to register one week before nonmembers. Moving forward, we will now allow Family Members (any variation of a Family Membership) to register two days before individual members and one week before our nonmembers. Spring Registration start dates will be, March 19th for Family Memberships ONLY, March 21st for all other members and March 26th for nonmembers.
We will also be piloting a new pricing structure. Beginning this spring with our Youth Sports classes Family Members will pay $15 for the session, Individual members will pay $20 for the session, and Nonmembers will pay $40 for the session. Through this pricing structure we are hoping to demonstrate the value of having a Family Membership. More is in the works for all programs in the near future to follow suite. Our hard work is already paying off as we are nearing 900 regular Family Membership units, and 1,100 Family Membership unit variations. Numbers we haven’t seen in a few years!more»
