Sexual Offender Background Check Policy
The mission of the YMCA of Washington County is to help build strong kids, families and communities. Important to this effort is our ability to provide a safe and threat-free environment. For this reason, the YMCA monitors the sexual offender registry. Persons on the list or who have been convicted of a crime against a minor will not be eligible for a YMCA membership, program participation, employment or volunteer opportunities at the YMCA of Washington County.
Lockers are available for rent on a monthly or yearly basis. Stop by the Front Desk or call for more information.
