The YMCA is often thought of for its pools and wellness centers, but, it’s history of sport runs deep. Basketball and volleyball were both invented in the 1890’s by YMCA participants. We carry on the legacy of these sports and more at the Greensburg YMCA. Our youth sport programs put the FUN in fundamentals; we believe that tomorrows great athletes are shaped today through sport programs that focus on skill development, sportsmanship, and character building. Our philosophy stems from the belief that children will learn competition later in life and therefore each child will participate throughout the session.
The Greensburg YMCA strives to never turn anyone away due to the inability to pay. With that in mind we will accept two forms of assistance in defraying the costs of membership, programs, and childcare. One way is through the YMCA Annual Support Campaign. The YMCA is able to grant scholarships to families in need due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals who donate monies to the campaign. We encourage those who may not be able to afford camp services on their own to complete a Financial Assistance Application and submit it to the Welcome Center of the YMCA. Please allow up to four weeks for processing. Additionally, our child care programs including the Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC), Before and After School Enrichment (BASE), and our Camps (Adventure and Sports) accept payment from Child Care Information Services (CCIS). Families should contact CCIS of Westmoreland County to inquire if they are qualified (724-836-4580).
