YMCA of Northern Alberta has had the privilege to serve the greater Edmonton area for over 115 years, and this November we’re celebrating the 25th birthday of our William Lutsky Family YMCA!

We would like to invite you to our anniversary event to celebrate our milestone, meet community members, learn more about our organization and connect with our incredible Y team.


November 21-26

‘90s–’00s-themed group fitness

Inspired by our 1996 opening, group fitness classes will be late '90s-'00s-themed. Our instructors will be dressed-up and we encourage you to do the same!

Loonie Toonie Dive

 In the last 5 minutes of your swim class, cheer on your instructor as they dive to the bottom to pick up your loonies and toonies! The more you bring, the more they dive, and the more money we raise for YMCA Giving.

Treats in the Lobby

On November 22, our 25th birthday, we'll have treats in our lobby from 10–11:30am and again from 5–7pm.

Colouring Contest

Download, colour and share your creation with our William Lutsky Family YMCA team and your child could win one week of YMCA Summer Camp in 2023*!

Fitness Centre Challenge

Complete various challenges in our fitness centre for a chance to win 1 month's worth of membership! Full details are available at our William Lutsky Family YMCA fitness centre. Terms apply.

*Colouring Contest Terms

The colouring contest runs from Sunday, November 21 to Saturday, November 26 and is open to children between three (3) years old and thirteen (13) years old. The winner will be given a credit for a week-long YMCA Summer Camp running at William Lutsky Family YMCA between July–August 2023.
