Special Events at Our YMCA


Follow the North Central Missouri YMCA on Twitter and Facebook for
announcements, late breaking news & updates!!


November 23 marked 10 years that we have been in the current YMCA facility. It seems not that long ago when we embarked on a capital campaign to raise the funds to build a facility that would meet the needs of our service area. Since we've been in the "new" full facility, the staff of the YMCA continues to strive to offer high quality programs and classes that are available to all segments of our services area. Be it dance, soccer, flag football, gymnastics, basketball, fitness classes, iddy biddy sports, walking on the track or programs for children with special needs, our objective is to focus on including the four character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in every program and service that the YMCA offers.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, in the spirit of the season, we wish you all the joys that the season brings and the hopes for a joyous New Year. The YMCA is open to everyone who wants to better their lives. Thank you for being a part of the North Central Missouri YMCA family and for your support in helping the staff and board continue to write the story of the YMCA in our service area.

O.J. Rodriguez, Executive Director


Exercise in the morning. This way you won't have to much time to think about NOT working out.

Exercise to Music. An upbeat play list keeps you motivated.

Find a workout you love. This way you will look forward to your workout.

Schedule time for daily exercise. Don't make exercise a choice, but part of your day (like brushing your teeth).

Eliminate stress. Exercise is one of the most effective stress relievers.

If you only have time to do one thing for yourself, make it a daily workout.

When you arrive, the first thing that comes to mind is that you belong here ... the YMCA.

Why do so many people feel like they belong at the Y? Because no other single membership provides so many ways to exercise both body and mind. Connect with yourself, family, and friends in a healthy way with a YMCA membership. From fitness programs to after school child care to youth sports to community volunteerism, your membership goes a long way to make a difference every day.

Whether your life is focused on shaping up, studying up, meeting up, or growing up, it all begins with signing up at the Y!! A Y membership is a great opportunity to make progress in your own way and move your life upwards and onwards. Realize the power within you and the power of a Y membership. The Y builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities. You DO belong at the Y!!

Current health statistics clearly illustrate ‘why’ it’s so important for kids and adults alike to lead healthier lifestyles.
At the YMCA, we believe families that are strong play a critical role in ‘how’ to make it happen.

  • Families grow stronger and healthier by focusing goals on more than just adding minutes of exercise and cutting out unhealthy snacks.

  • Goals which balance, nurture and strengthen spirit, mind and body are the key to building healthier families for the long term. It’s really the ultimate exercise.

  • Studies confirm again and again the important role that family interaction and strengthening play in the long-term health and well being of its individual members.

  • Participating in family rituals that foster togetherness and communication is strongly linked to adolescent mental health. Teens who eat with their families most days have better grades and less depression and substance abuse than kids who frequently eat on their own.

  • University studies show that young kids and teens whom eat regularly with their families eat more fruits, vegetables, fiber and whole grains and consume less soda and snack food.

  • A 2004 YMCA of the USA study found that parents who received support from community organizations such as YMCAs reported positive experiences for their children, saying the programs enabled their children to engage with other kids, provided positive influence and offered role models.


Mike White will lead a non-denominational Bible Study every Wednesday at noon until 1:00 p.m. in the YMCA conference room.

Partners with Youth

Meeting the needs of the Linn County Area, the YMCA provides quality programming for people of all ages, races, and religions. Guided by the principles of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility, YMCA activities enrich the physical, social, and spiritual well-being of our children, families, and community.

Helping so many people would not be possible without the YMCA Annual Partners with Youth Campaign for Financial Assistance, which provides scholarships to individuals and families in need. Imagine the possibilities...

  • $25 would provide the opportunity for a child to participate in a YMCA sports program that could not afford to.

  • $75 will give a child, who would otherwise have no place to go a year membership to the YMCA

  • $100 would help a needy family join the YMCA and have an opportunity for a healthy lifestyle that they would otherwise not have.
