Schottland Family YMCA | Kids Out and About Rochester

Schottland Family YMCA

The next generation of the YMCA is here! This 140,000 square foot state-of-the-art new facility, located at the corner of Clover Street and Jefferson Road, is a nationally recognized collaborative model that will achieve the YMCA mission. One of the greatest misconceptions about the YMCA is that the Y is just a building with a pool and a gym. The reality is that the YMCA is a powerful agent of change focused on strengthening our community. The new Schottland Family Branch is expanding Y services to meet the needs of more individuals, families, children, and seniors.

The Schottland Family YMCA is a state-of-the-art facility that serves a diverse population of members. The facility is home to almost every possible resource you can imagine. For our younger members, they can enjoy the Davenport-Hatch Child Watch area with toys for our smaller friends (ages 6 weeks-5 years) or the Cristman Depot which houses a three-story climbing structure for older kids (6-12 years). Families can also utilize the Family Lounge which includes a Caregivers Room for extra privacy. There is also Partial Day preschool available and our full day Skalny Childcare Center. In the Pettinella Aquatic Center you will find: a warm water pool with a current channel, a lap pool, Splash Pad, a whirlpool, a dry sauna, and a steam room. Looking for a gymnasium? We’ve got three! Our smaller Tom & Ebets Judson Family Gym is home to group exercise classes and some of our youth sport classes. The main gymnasium plays host to basketball and pickleball games. In the turf gym you can find some of our higher intensity group exercise classes, some personal training sessions, and CrossFit-style training equipment. You can also find our Golf Simulator in the turf gym, so you can practice your swing year-round. Right upstairs you’ll find our three group exercise studios and Grimm Cycle Stadium which can seat up to 90 cyclists. There is also our Riedman Foundation Track for those looking to go for a run or walk around the Y. The UR Medicine Wellness Center offers traditional wellness center equipment with Cardio and Strength machines and free weights. On our main floor, you will find more than just areas to improve your physical health. Our Bruning Exercise Your Mind studio is a haven for musicians and our creative members with its recording studios and STEAM programming. Down our Community Wing you can find: The Palmers Teaching Kitchen, the Sal Labella Multipurpose Studio, the Kushner Community Center and Miller Art Studio. The Schottland Family YMCA has a lot to offer, and we hope you can take the time to come in and check it all out!
