SkyView YMCA celebrates 1st birthday with a free pool party June 16

Las Vegas ( May 29 , 2012) – Community members of all ages are invited to help the SkyView YMCA celebrate its first birthday during a free pool party on Saturday, June 16, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. The party will include free admission to the SkyView Y, free refreshments while supplies last, free games, Y-Kids classes and refreshing swimming in the indoor pool. The SkyView YMCA is located in North Las Vegas at 3050 E. Centennial Parkway between Losee Road and N. Pecos Road south of the 215 Beltway.

In honor of the celebration, anyone who joins the YMCA of Southern Nevada at the SkyView location on June 16 will receive $25 in Y-Bucks to use toward membership, programs or logo merchandise. The offer is valid all day June 16, only at the SkyView YMCA.

The Y was awarded the contract to operate the City of North Las Vegas SkyView Multi-Generational Center in spring 2011. It is the Y’s fourth branch operation, along with the YMCA-owned Bill & Lillie Heinrich YMCA, and the City of Las Vegas’ Durango Hills and Centennial Hills Community Centers, both operated by the Y.

“We’re so proud to partner with the City of North Las Vegas to bring our award-winning Y programs and services to area residents,” said Brianna Gerrity, branch director at the SkyView Y. “Our first year has been tremendous, and the community has embraced us. There’s no better way to celebrate than by throwing a party for our neighbors.”

The 36,000-square-foot SkyView Y includes a state-of-the-art wellness center with cardio equipment, circuit machines and dumbbells, an indoor swimming pool with lap lanes and lesson areas, and a child care room. Studios house classes, including yoga, Zumba, BODYPUMP, cycling, kickboxing, martial arts, pilates, aerobics and “Y-Kids,” which are the Y’s child-focused classes. Other amenities include locker rooms, vending areas, and naturally lit relaxation areas with Wi-Fi.

Individuals of every age, fitness and income level can benefit from the SkyView YMCA’s programs in the areas of aquatics, wellness, sports, camps and family activities. The Y is a nonprofit organization, and no one is turned away because of an inability to pay. Financial assistance is available.
