About Desert Foothills Family YMCA
October of 2009 the Desert Foothills Family YMCA opened its doors to serve the communities of North Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree and North Phoenix. This Y sits on the beautiful backdrop of the North Sonoran desert and is a part of the Black Mountain Campus – a partnership with Paradise Valley Community College and the Foothills Community Foundation. As a true multigenerational facility, the Desert Foothills YMCA supports offerings and services for the entire community – from the youngest member at 3 months and their siblings to adults and active seniors in their 90s! In addition to the health & fitness offerings (including equipment, group fitness classes and personal training), the facility has an outdoor heated pool with zero-depth entry, gender specific and family locker rooms, separate spaces and programs for youth and teens, racquetball courts and a gymnasium. DFFY is a very popular place for the teens in the area with a dedicated teen center and associated programs – many free to the community. It has the largest Teen Leaders Club in the association. The Desert Foothills success can be accredited to a dedicated leadership team that exemplifies the core values of the YMCA. You’ll often see firefighter playing racquetball, the gym full of adults playing Pickleball, or the buses dropping kids off at the branch after school. The Desert Foothills Family YMCA is proud to part of the Valley of the Sun YMCA and the surrounding community.
The desert foothills YMCA is an amazing facility with great staff, knowledgeable and experienced trainers, and a fantastic kids program and kid area/day care so I can get my workout in! I absolutely love it there. I highly recommend this YMCA!
