About Watts Family Maryvale YMCA

Watts Family Maryvale YMCA opened its doors in April of 2008. We provide programs and services that promote four core values: caring, honesty, respect, responsibility. These programs include: childcare, youth sports, swimming, camping, gymnastics, teen, family and senior adult programs, health and fitness, and volunteerism, with more than 260 opportunities. To help support our large Hispanic population, we have bilingual staff including fitness instructors to improve understanding and relationships with our members.

We regularly offer special events where families and the community can join in the fun, including Community Days, Healthy Kids Day, Christmas Programs, Halloween Programs, Summer Programs, and Spring Programs. We also offer Miracle League, a program for disabled children ages 4 and older, the opportunity to experience the joy of playing BASEBALL. In the process, they make new friends, build self-esteem, and create lasting memories. Like the Miracle League, every opportunity offered by the Y is a chance for positive change. And that’s what keeps us reaching farther every day. There is so much to experience at Watts Family Maryvale YMCA!

I love this place… Zumba classes are so much fun and is one of great friends. It’s like being in a family.
