An exciting opportunity and a first for New York State!

The YMCA built upon an existing relationship with JCC and entered into a 30-year shared-use agreement when building the new facility in 2004. This partnership allows JCC students and staff to access the new facility for athletics, intramural activities, physical education classes, recreation and other college-related activities.
