UPDATE 1/15/21

Regarding the new Executive Orders impacting Gyms & Fitness Centers (https://www.maine.gov/decd/checklists/gyms-fitness-centers), the Maine DECD has released updated guidelines on Community Sports (https://www.maine.gov/decd/checklists/community-sports). 


At this time, we are following both the Governor's Executive Orders as well as recommendations from the Maine DECD so our facility can remain open and we can continue to provide programs and activities that support our Mission. The AYCC remains proud to be a resource for families and individuals set on improving their health and wellness, even during the Pandemic.
