Mission: To put Christian principles in practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

Our friends at the YMCA of Rapid City asked us to share this with our YMCA family!


Sharing our love for our YDC kids with the world! We miss you all!!

We know that staying fit and active is our best way to build a strong immune system and stay healthy.

Since the YMCA is currently closed due to the Coronavirus, here is a free option to help keep you active and working out at home.

This platform offers 95 free workouts across 8 categories. You should find it easy to follow the visual cues. This will remain available as long as the disruption from the Coronavirus continues.


[03/27/20]   The YMCA will follow the Governor's safety closure timeline. We will be closed through May 1st. Be safe and healthy!

Another resource for our community during these challenging times.

[03/13/20]   All YMCA Facilities will be closed March 14th through March 22nd
The Aberdeen Family YMCA will close the YMCA, Youth Development Center, and CrossFit Rails following Governor Kristi Noem’s declaration of a state of emergency in South Dakota in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure is part of a mitigation strategy to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. This is part of Governor Noem’s and President Trump’s declaration, and CDC guidelines toward being a successful strategy is this fight. While over 80 percent who get COVID-19 only get mild symptoms, we want to protect the most fragile members of our community who would be the most impacted.
