YMCA is the national leader in facility management. We have managed local government recreation facilities across Australia for more than 30 years and are the largest, most experienced operators of aquatic and leisure facilities at both state and national level.
In Victoria, we impact 75 municipalities through management of more than 100 Council-owned facilities. We employ more than 6,000 staff and engage more than 1,200 volunteers in the delivery of a broad range of programs and services aimed at creating happier, healthier communities.
Aquatics and Swimming
YMCA is the expert in aquatics programs and management of large aquatic facilities. YMCA Swimming Lessons is an industry-leading program that provides students with a pathway to grow and develop water safety knowledge and skills in aquatic environments.
Every year, the YMCA helps more than 50,000 children learn to swim and to be safe in and around water.
Gym and Fitness
Our health and fitness offerings continue to integrate award-winning and tested fitness programming that caters for a wide cross section of the community. All our programs and services are delivered by qualified and supportive professionals.
YMCA Victoria has recently partnered with world leading fitness company Precor to ensure our 66,000 plus members have access to the best and most innovative gym equipment available.
The YMCA oversees the management of 55 stadium facilities within our recreation contracts. Our reputation in stadium programming has been built on delivery of a range of leading sports programs and services including basketball, netball, soccer, volleyball and occasional hire.
Our key focus is the provision of opportunities and initiatives for both competitive and non-competitive programs that respond to the needs of a wide cross-section of the community.
The YMCA Gymnastics program is approved by Gymnastics Victoria and has experienced strong growth over the past two years with membership now exceeding 4,000 across six venues.
The program centres on developing fundamental movement skills such as body awareness, agility, balance, and coordination in a safe and fun environment. These skills are central to the development of safe and confident children and young adults.
The YMCA manages a number of tennis facilities in Victoria and has a goal of providing members and the community with first-class facilities and programs in a friendly, relaxed club setting.
Tennis coaching and instruction is a key focus together with Tennis Victoria approved programs including Hot Shots and Cardio Tennis. The YMCA’s organisational experience ensures programming is maximised and facilities are utilised to their full potential.

Among these are disability services (we are a registered NDIS provider), aged care services, healthy kids programs, mental health programs, mindfulness and active, healthy lifestyle programs.
