ABOUT US

History

Founded in 1981, the dream of the YMCA of Greater Williamson County began during the 1970s when the Round Rock United Way formed a committee to study the feasibility of a community-owned and operated youth facility. Their efforts resulted in a United Way “Youth Contingency Fund” in 1976, which eventually became the seed money for the Y. The first Y executive director then began working from a portable building at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and Lampasas Street. From this humble beginning, Y programs in Round Rock began to flourish.

During the 1980s, the portable relocated to Main Street (on property provided by the Trinity Lutheran Home), additional seed money was raised toward building a Y facility, and the Jim Mills family donated 23 acres of land in northeast Round Rock. From there, the Y’s programs grew rapidly. In 1987, the Texas Baptist Children’s Home donated building space on Mays Street in Round Rock for a child care center and aerobics. One year later, a fitness center was established down the street by leasing space in a partially vacated shopping center. By 1990, the Y leased the entire shopping center before purchasing it in 1992.

Programs continued to expand through the 1990s as building renovations, including a teen center, multipurpose room, child development center and kids gym, were completed. The Y then adopted a metropolitan structure in 1994, and also assumed management of the 50-acre Twin Lakes Park (in Cedar Park), which paved the way for park improvements and expanded day camp programming (with the start of YMCA Camp Twin Lakes operations). From there, the Hill Country Family YMCA in Cedar Park opened in 1997 (which would eventually become the Twin Lakes Family YMCA) and programs expanded to Taylor in 1998 (which led to the founding of the Taylor Family YMCA in 2004). The YMCA of Greater Williamson County also established its first school-based after school program in 1989 by partnering with Round Rock ISD. In the 2000s, the Ys in Cedar Park and Round Rock not only underwent major renovations, including the addition of indoor aquatics centers at both facilities, but both the YMCA of the Highland Lakes in Burnet (2013) and the Hutto Family YMCA (temporary facility in 2011 and full facility in 2014) were established in conjunction with the city of Burnet and the city of Hutto, respectively.

Plans to build facilities to meet the ever-growing needs of Williamson County in the 21st century and beyond continue to this day. The Y is dedicated to helping children reach adulthood equipped for the future; providing families with adequate child care and recreational activities they can enjoy together; and helping communities stay together to build a safer, healthier environment. Our future depends on the strength of our children, our families and our communities.

Although the overall Y organization was born over 150 years ago as the “Young Men’s Christian Association,” today, half of the Y members are female and half are over the age of 18. The mission of the Y is based on Christian principles shared by all faiths and practiced each day in Ys across the United States and in 130 countries around the world.

The YMCA of Greater Williamson County is a 501 © (3) organization chartered by the YMCA of the USA. The YMCA of Greater Williamson County is audited annually by independent auditors who present their finds directly to the Association Board of Directors. The Association Board of Directors is a volunteer-based group of community leaders that serve as an independent governing body to provide the checks and balances necessary to ensure that YMCA of Greater Williamson County activities are transparent and properly reported to the public as well as applicable governmental agencies.

Y Healthy Kids Day Encourages Families to Get a Jump on Summer this Saturday, April 27

ROUND ROCK, TX – On Saturday, April 27, the YMCA of Greater Williamson County will be holding Healthy Kids Day - a free community event for kids and families that is filled with fun, active play and educational activities that will help parents improve their kids' lifestyles for the long term. More than 1,900 Ys across the country are taking part in this celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer – a critical out-of-school time for kids.

This free annual event will take place at or near the Ys in Cedar Park (204 E. Little Elm Trail), Hutto (at Hutto High School – 101 FM 685 in Hutto), and Round Rock (1812 N. Mays Street) from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and feature activities such as health screenings, safety demonstrations, games, inflatables, summer program registrations and much more.

A leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y holds Healthy Kids Day to teach healthy habits and inspire a lifetime love of physical activity through active play. As part of the Healthy Kids Day initiative, the Y – along with hundreds of thousands of parents and kids nationwide – is getting a jump on summer by addressing critical gaps in health and education that cause kids to be at risk for childhood obesity and suffer summer learning loss. Research shows that without access to activities that stimulate the mind and body, kids are more prone to gain weight and fall behind academically over the summer months.

Healthy Kids Day is supported locally by Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas. For more information, please log on to www.ymcagwc.org or contact the Ys in Cedar Park (512-250-9622), Hutto (512-846-2360) or Round Rock (512-246-9622).

The Y’s Healthy Kids Day™ on April 16 Aims to Get Families Moving Through Play

Close X

ROUND ROCK, Texas  On Saturday, April 16, the YMCA of Greater Williamson County is encouraging all kids and parents throughout Central Texas to come to the Y for a play date and commit to being active every day. It’s all part of the Y’s Healthy Kids Day™ – the nation’s largest health day for families. The free event will take place at the Y locations in Cedar Park, Hutto, Round Rock and Taylor (at Murphy Park on W. Lake Drive in Taylor) from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and feature activities such as health screenings, safety demonstrations, games, inflatables, summer program registrations and much more.

 

As a leading nonprofit strengthening community through healthy living, the Y holds Healthy Kids Day to teach healthy habits to kids and inspire a lifetime love of physical activity. At a time when one in three children in the United States are overweight or obese (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), developing healthier habits that include increased physical activity is more important than ever.

 

In conjunction with Healthy Kids Day, the Y encourages families to make play dates everyday as a simple way to become healthier, more active and connected. The YMCA of Greater Williamson County recommends five simple activities families can do to play together:

 

1.  Schedule a Game Night: Play games with the kids that incorporate physical activity, such as charades.

2.  Dance, Dance: Turn on your favorite party music and dance! Make this activity more fun with a dance contest.

3.  Go Riding: Find a new bike path or park for a fun afternoon outdoors; grab your helmets and go rollerblading or bike riding. 

4.  Channel Your Inner Youth: Remember playing hopscotch, jump rope, Simon Says or freeze tag as a kid? Teach your favorite childhood game to your kid(s) and play them together.

5.  Play Outside: Visit your neighborhood park or camp out in your backyard for some outdoor fun. Get everyone moving with fun sports like soccer, basketball or baseball.

 

Healthy Kids Day, which is supported locally by St. David’s Community Health Foundation and St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center, will be celebrated at nearly 1,600 Ys across the country, with more than 700,000 families expected to attend this year.

 

For more information, log on to our website at  www.ymcagwc.org  or contact your local Y branch location in Cedar Park (Twin Lakes Family YMCA: 512-250-9622), Hutto (Hutto Family YMCA: 512-846-2360), Round Rock (CHASCO Family YMCA: 512-246-9622) or Taylor (Taylor Family YMCA: 512-365-9622).

An opportunity for kids and families to “Put Play in Their Day,” Healthy Kids Day uses fun, engaging and creative activities to encourage children and families to adopt behaviors that support a healthy lifestyle. By offering everything from games to inflatables to various outdoor activities, safety demonstrations, health screenings, food, fun and more, each branch is able help remind members of the Williamson County community that they too can be a part of the solution toward building healthier lifestyles for themselves and everyone around them by strengthening bonds, building positive values, spending time together, improving the health and well-being of their families and making friends for life.

Y Healthy Kids Day is part of Y Activate America - a national initiative designed to help children and adults discover and sustain healthier ways to live. Unhealthy eating and physical inactivity are associated with an increased risk of a number of chronic health conditions including overweight and obesity. In fact, the percentage of young people who are overweight has tripled over the last 25 years. In 2005, a panel of experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that school-age children should participate in moderate to vigorous activity for a minimum of 60 minutes per day. Studies have also shown that children who develop healthy exercise and eating habits while they are young are more likely to continue to lead healthy lifestyles through adulthood.

YMCA of Greater Williamson County Healthy Kids Day Cancelled

ROUND ROCK, Texas – With the U.S. Government declaring Swine Influenza a public health emergency in the United States and the World Health Organization raising the worldwide pandemic alert level to Phase 5 ( www.cdc.gov/swineflu ), the YMCA of Greater Williamson County has decided to cancel its Healthy Kids Day event at each of its branch locations (Cedar Park, Round Rock & Taylor) on Saturday, May 2.

This annual FREE event set for 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. this Saturday, was originally postponed from Saturday, April 18 to May 2 due to inclement weather. With Y Healthy Kids Day showing families that making healthy choices can be easy, fun and accessible to everyone through exciting and engaging activities, the YMCA of Greater Williamson County decided that having an event that draws large crowds would not be the safest or healthiest environment for families due to the current public health emergency.

“With Healthy Kids Day placing a focus on communities being healthy, we would not be performing our mission at the Y by holding an event that could potentially put people at risk,” said YMCA of Greater Williamson County President / CEO Jeff Andresen. “Please understand that we are not trying to scare people by cancelling this event, but rather making a decision on the side of caution for our community’s best interest in terms of health and wellness.”

TEXAS BAPTIST CHILDREN’S HOME

ROUND ROCK, Texas — Texas Baptist Children’s Home & Family Services (TBCHFS) and the YMCA of Greater Williamson County have entered into a 25-year lease agreement for TBCHFS property at the southeast corner of South Mays and Old Bowman Road.

The lease extends an informal agreement through which the property has been used for several years for youth sports activities, including tee-ball and soccer. A formal lease will allow the Y to make improvements by adding restrooms, lighting, a walking track and more.

“This agreement provides an opportunity for future improvements to the site so that youth sports participants will not only have the use of upgraded playing fields, but will also receive an enriched Y experience,” said Jeff Andresen, President / CEO of the YMCA of Greater Williamson County.

“After the renovations are complete, the Y will not only be able to serve 2,500 more kids per year in sports, but we will also be able to serve our entire community further with the installation of a walking track that will connect to another new track on our existing sports fields across Mays Street,” said Sheri Yerrington, Executive Director of the CHASCO Family YMCA in Round Rock.

The otherwise unoccupied property is at the northeast corner of land where Texas Baptist Children’s Home has been located since 1950.

“This is another way that TBCHFS can serve the children of the community,” said TBCHFS President Jerry T. Bradley. “Through this partnership with the Y, community children can enjoy sports at improved facilities.

“The Y began its programs in our facilities and we have maintained a strong partnership through the years,” he added. “The Christian values and spiritual component within the Y fit closely with the faith that is the foundation and heart of our ministry.”

TBCHFS is a nonprofit agency that provides land and building services for the family of Children at Heart Ministries, including TBCH and STARRY in Round Rock; Gracewood in Houston; Miracle Farm in Brenham; and the Children At Heart Foundation.

ROUND ROCK, Texas – Following the official groundbreaking event for the Round Rock Family YMCA’s new Aquatics Center, being built in conjunction with the City of Round Rock, Seton Williamson Medical Center and St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center, on Oct. 24, 2007, the much-anticipated facility is only months away from opening its doors.  

The completion of this project will provide the entire Round Rock community with its first year-round indoor competitive aquatics facility. As with all Y facilities and programs, the pool is open to members as well as non-members. With that in mind, the aquatics center will have available year-round schedules for group rentals, swim teams, etc., provide expanded recreational and instructional opportunities for the entire community, and allow city events – such as the Game of Texas – to be held on site.

This aquatics facility was the dream of Round Rock resident Nancy Rabb, who is the co-founder of Wag-A-Bag, Inc., and one of the founding members of the YMCA of Greater Williamson County – of which the Round Rock Family YMCA is a branch location. From the time that the Round Rock Family YMCA was established in 1976, Rabb envisioned bringing a year-round pool to the area. Now, the long-awaited fruits of tireless hours and labor both on her part and many others throughout the community have made this dream a reality. 

For additional information and updates on the pool project, please log on to  www.ymcagwc.org or contact Cori Cunningham Risener at (512) 615-5551.

Y Adventure Guides & Trail Blazers Provide Answer to Parent-Child Bonding

Close X

YMCA of GREATER WILLIAMSON COUNTY
Contact:  Mike Forcucci (512) 615-5515

CEDAR PARK, Texas -  In today’s hectic society, it’s not only hard for parents to carve out time to spend time with their kids, but, when it comes to finding activities where they can individually bond and engage the child, it’s even more difficult. One answer to this dilemma is provided through the Y’s Adventure Guides and Trail Blazers programs.

While Y Adventure Guides is designed for a parent and his or her child in Kinder through 3rd grade, Y Trail Blazers is a continuation of the program for a parent and his or her child in 4ththrough 6th grade. In both programs, the focus is on the parent’s role as a guide in a child’s life. Parents lead, direct, supervise, influence and teach while presenting opportunities for children to explore the world around them. They lead by example as they set their children on a path through life. The program experience begins as a side-by-side journey for a parent and child, until the child is launched into more advanced, independent activities. This journey happens within the context of a small “Circle” community. The “Circle” is the program’s basic unit, providing a structure, a sense of community and support for all group activities. Adventure Guides/Trailblazers (parents) and Explorers (children) meet in “Circles” once or twice a month and participate in a variety of Expedition Adventures (such as overnight camping) throughout the year.

The immediate gains of these parent-child programs are obvious — a parent will enjoy spending time with and getting to know their son or daughter at a deeper level—but the long-term gains are significant. The parent builds a solid foundation for a relationship that will likely result in becoming their child’s friend for a lifetime. The parent will also help to build and develop a set of assets and patterns that their children (and other “Circle” members) will carry with them into adolescence and adulthood.

Developmental assets, a term coined and researched by the Search Institute of Minneapolis, Minn., are the 40 essential building blocks that children and teenagers need as a foundation for growing up to be healthy and productive. Ys across the country have adopted these assets, and they provide a focus for Y programs, including Y Adventure Guides and Trail Blazers. Research shows that acquiring more developmental assets helps children and teenagers:

  • cope and adapt when difficult things happen
  • choose not to get involved in many different high-risk behaviors, such as alcohol and other drug use, violence, and premature sexual activity
  • develop the attitudes, skills, and abilities they need to be good friends, family members, citizens, workers, leaders, and contributors to society

A focus on building these assets also helps families with children and teenagers:

  • set priorities for how they spend their time together
  • focus on building strengths before problems arise
  • remember to pay attention to many different areas of a child’s growth

Additionally, when adults of all ages get involved in asset building, they

  • develop new and lasting friendships with young people
  • do something positive to address their interests and concerns about their community
  • leave a positive mark on the lives of kids and in their community

The YMCA of Greater Williamson County will help introduce the Adventure Guides and Trail Blazers programs to families who may be interested during the annual Adventure Night event on Saturday, Sept. 29 at Camp Twin Lakes (adjacent to the Twin Lakes Family YMCA at 204 E. Little Elm Trail in Cedar Park).  Admission is only $3 per person or $10 per family for an evening that will include Tower Climbing, Kayaking, Paintball, Archery, Canoeing, Paddleboats, Hay Rides, Carnival Games, Concessions and more.  Notably, the first 300 kids in attendance will receive a free compass. For additional information on the event or the Adventure Guides / Trail Blazers programs, log on to  www.ymcagwc.org  or contact the Twin Lakes Family YMCA at (512) 250-9622 (YMCA).

CEDAR PARK, Texas – The YMCA of Greater Williamson County has teamed with University of Texas Women’s Soccer Head Coach Chris Petrucelli and members of the Longhorns women’s soccer team to host a youth soccer event called the Chris Petrucelli Y Soccer Clinic on Saturday, March 24. A total of 100 children between the ages of 8 and 13 can participate in this clinic from 9:00 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. at the Twin Lakes Family YMCA (located just off of US 183 in Cedar Park – a few miles north of Lakeline Mall and just south of the intersection of US 183 and Cypress Creek Road). All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Y’s annual Strong Kids Campaign, which provides financial assistance to anyone wanting to participate in YMCA programs but cannot afford to do so due to financial constraints.

Registration for the clinic, which is open to Y Members and Non-Members, runs from Feb. 21 through March 22 at each of the three YMCA of Greater Williamson County locations (Twin Lakes: 204 E.
