About Our Y

Who We Are

At the Y, we focus on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community’s health and well-being and giving back to our neighbors.  Everyone is welcome at the Y, regardless of age, ability, income, or background.  During these difficult times when tensions are high, the Y is dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion.  Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility guide everything we do.

Your Safety is Our #1 Priority

Our programs and facilities continuously strive to meet or exceed CDC and Health Department guidelines. All Westfield Area YMCA facilities have Global Plasma Solutions Needlepoint Bi-Polar Ionization Air Quality Systems with proven effectiveness inactivating the COVID-19 virus: 10 minutes, 84.2%; 15 minutes, 92.6%; 30 minutes, 99.4%. Y staff will continue cleaning high-touch areas and we ask that you remain vigilant about hand washing and wiping down equipment before and after you use it.

  • Swim With Santa

    December 11, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

    Reserve a 30-minute swim with Santa and his elves and enjoy more fun before or after in the arts & crafts room. Parent/guardian must be in the pool with a child under age 6 or a child who can’t swim. Register by 12/9 online or at the Welcome Center — each session will close when maximum capacity is reached.

    Proceeds benefit the Annual Support Campaign which ensures that no one who lives or works in Cranford, Garwood, Mountainside or Westfield and is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship is denied the opportunity to participate at the Y.
