YMCA of Greater Nashua Program Registration

Program Express Terms (3-4 Week Programs) Start October 5 - Registration OPENS on September 21

Express Term Program Registration

 

 

 

ANNOUNCING PROGRAM EXPRESS TERMS!

We are thrilled to announce that we will begin to offer 3-4 week Program Express Terms. Classes begin the week of October 5. Program Registration opens on Monday, September 21.

Program Express Terms are being offered to provide greater flexibility and variety for YMCA Members and the Greater Nashua Community as parents and families navigate the complexities of differing school schedules and the overarching issues of our time within the context to COVID-19. By offering programs in 3-4 week terms, program participants will be able to more easily register for programs and finish programs even with the possibility of school schedules changing.

FLEXIBILITY: Program Express Terms utilize reduced schedules, allowing us to offer more program options for you to try on a month by month basis.

AFFORDABILITY: Program Express Terms offer a smaller financial commitment to try out programs to determine if it’s a good fit for you or your child.

CUSTOMIZATION: Program Express Terms can be registered during times when your child is attending the YMCA for Child Care Programs held at our YMCA branches and our staff will take them to and pick them up after the program.

Due to current guidelines and policies, there are some things you need to know for this upcoming session, see below for further details. Research Program Express Term offerings and then register for your favorites by clicking the button below.

CURRENT GUIDE

Programs are a big part of the YMCA experience; connecting members, giving youth a place to express themselves and burn off energy with friends, and helping others to achieve mental, physical and spiritual goals. We’re happy to be offering them again.

As we lead into the Fall and school districts begin to navigate COVID-19 with varied school reopening plans we have added a number of COVID-19 Conscious Programming options. We’ll be offering a number of extra programs during the middle of the day, as well as more programming overall to help alleviate some of the capacity limitations per class.

EXPRESS TERM STARTS WEEK OF OCTOBER 5, 2020
  • Registration OPENS on Monday September 21 for Members and Community Members

  • Due to current State of New Hampshire Guidelines and YMCA’s space limitations programs will still have capacity limitations to help with social distancing and other health guidelines.

  • Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the myriad of school schedules we’ll be offering more programs during the middle of the day so that families can attend the YMCA together during remote learning days.

Online Registration

  • ALL program participants will register for all classes ONLINE through our Program Registration Portal.

  • Welcome Center staff will NOT be able to assist with registration in person at the branches at this time.

  • Program participants needing assistance logging into their account are asked to first visit our Personify Software Information Page first.

 

Program Registration Specific Details

Personify Launches, program registration

  • Searching for Programs: The new Personify registration portal has a more elaborate search engine mechanism. Members are encouraged to use the filtering system within program portal. There are filter options for category, sub-category, branch, participant age, time of day and keywords; all of which can be helpful in targeting programs of interest.

  • Program Details: To determine any programs you’d like to register for or to research them either enter our program registration portal or visit the individual program pages for further program overview. Program details can be found in the program portal.

 

Do You Have a Credit From the Shortened Session D Due to the March 2020 YMCA Closure?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were forced to pause all programs at the YMCA in March of 2020. Any payments previously made for Session D programs are now set up as prorated credits for the unused portion of Session D programs on your account. This includes all arts and humanities, sports, dance, swim lessons, fitness classes, and music classes.

What the YMCA is Doing

Our #1 Priority is to Make Our Facilities as Safe as Possible When We Begin Reopening.

Our facilities have undergone a deep cleaning to prepare for the reopening and although it will look and feel a bit different when you visit the Y next, the adjustments we’ve made to our facilities will help make it safe for everyone to enjoy the benefits of the YMCA.

Below are some of the adjustments we have made:

  • We have quadrupled our daytime cleaning crew.

  • There are more sanitizing wipes in the wellness centers and common areas; and we have increased hand sanitizers throughout the buildings. We ask that all members use the cleaning materials provided to wipe down equipment before and after their workout.

  • Our cardio and strength equipment are now either spaced 6 feet apart or have been taken out of service to promote social distancing.

  • We have installed plexiglass screens at our Welcome Centers

  • We have increased all staff training to ensure new State of NH Guidelines are understood and being followed.

  • We introduced a new member and program registration management software called Personify, that makes it easier to manage your accounts from home.

  • New Member Engagement Specialists have been added throughout our YMCAs to assist with any questions members may have.

  • We have removed all group seating in our public areas to discourage group gatherings. (There will be seating for those that need to take a rest.)

  • We have removed all YMCA provided personal equipment such as yoga mats, board games and magazines.

  • All staff will be wearing masks, when in public areas.

  • We will do mandatory temperature checks and brief health screenings for everyone entering the building.

  • Staff will be asked to stay home if they are sick.

We have used resources from the dozens of sources including: NH Dept. of Health & Human Services; Nashua’s Public Health Dept.; the Centers for Disease Control; and YMCA of the USA. We have had the opportunity to learn from our peers in YMCAs that have recently reopened. Hopefully you had an opportunity to offer input through our member reopening survey that was emailed in mid-May. We want to know what your concerns are when you return. All of our policy updates will be very visible on signage as you enter and move within the buildings.
