Serving Those Who Served

The Maine YMCAs are extremely grateful to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Maine Healthcare System for recognizing the Y’s ability to support our nation’s heroes through access to our facilities and programming. We look forward to connecting Maine veterans to the YMCA over the next five years and beyond,” said Meagan Hamblett, CEO of the YMCA Alliance of Northern New England.

Maine veterans interested in accessing this benefit must receive a referral from their VA Maine primary care physician. YMCA locations can be viewed here:

The 15 YMCAs in Maine serve more than 95,000 people across the state each year. The YMCA Alliance of Northern New England supports collaboration amongst the state’s Ys and community partners to increase our impact and advocate for positive change in our communities. Due to its unparalleled reach, the Y is a powerful advocate for our communities and familiar with the needs of the children, families, and individuals throughout the region.

Veterans are encouraged to enroll in VA health care at or by calling 877-222-8387.

Membership Handbook

You are now part of a community where everyone can learn, grow, and thrive. Whether you are on a personal fitness journey or participating in any of our enriching programs, we are delighted to welcome you to YOUR community center.

We have served this community for more than 100 years. The Waterville Boys Club was founded in 1924, located between College Avenue and Main Streets. The YMCA of Greater Waterville was established in 1948 and housed on Pleasant Street. In 1972, the Boys Clubs merged with the Girls Clubs and in May 1999, the Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCA joined together in what we now call the Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCA of Greater Waterville at the Alfond Youth & Community Center. The AYCC is the only organization across the United States to have combined the Boys & Girls Clubs and the YMCA in one single organization and has successfully been in operation since 1999!

Only individually trained service dogs are permitted in our facility and on any AYCC properties. Upon Entry, staff may ask to confirm 1) if the dog is a service animal required because of a disability, and 2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform. (For more information, please visit

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Under the ADA, State and local governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that serve the public generally must allow service animals to accompany people with disabilities in all areas of the facility where the public is normally allowed to go. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. Emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals are not considered service animals under the ADA as they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task.

We recognize that several members and guests may have severe allergies to certain animals, but we cannot refuse entry to service animals. If you are experiencing issues related to a service animal in our facility, please let our staff know and we will do our best to make appropriate accommodation.


While policies & procedures are in place to reduce the risk of accidents, injuries, and emergencies, they do sometimes occur. Staff are trained to respond in an emergency, but members and guests play a key role, too.

  • Dial 911 from any AYCC phone.

    • Fire/smoke alarms include flashing lights and a loud sound.
    • Patrons in aquatic areas may be asked to remain in the building. Follow directions from lifeguards and other AYCC staff.

Video cameras are in public areas (not locker rooms or restrooms) throughout the building. Recorded video will be made directly available to the general public only to the extent required by law. In the event of crime or security incident in the area where video surveillance coverage may be available, individuals should report the crime to the Waterville Police Department. The Waterville PD can then request the appropriate video from the AYCC. If relevant video is available, a video clip of the incident may be produced and made available to the Waterville PD (or other law enforcement agency) in accordance with the policies set forth herein. All requests for video recordings by law enforcement agencies shall be coordinated by the AYCC. The AYCC and its designees will cooperate fully with all court orders or subpoenas for video recordings. Video recordings will be provided in response to requests reasonably describing the desired recordings in accordance with the process provided under Section VI. IT MSP contractors will assist and support

AYCC with requests for large amount of video recordings (more than 1 hour) or other complex requests in accordance with the terms and procedures of this usage policy.

Choosing an appropriate weight prevents the risk of injury and ensures you perform the lift with the proper technique.

Our Certified Personal Trainers (CPT) are committed to providing safe, high-quality coaching and instruction. Personal training at the AYCC may be provided only by staff employed by the AYCC for that purpose. Private training sessions are scheduled for one hour. Cancelled appointments require at least 24-hour notice.

  • Clients will be charged in full for sessions cancelled with less than 24-hours notice.
  • Clients will receive a free session if the CPT cancels a session with less than 24 hours notice. The session must be redeemed within 7 days.

Without proper authorization, anyone who is not an AYCC staff member and conducts paid personal training (or coaching) sessions will be asked to cease and desist. All patrons involved may be asked to leave the AYCC. Staff may question people suspected of conducting or participating in outside personal training. Any of the following or related behaviors may attract such questioning:

  • Assisting a participant/group with technique or giving instruction, but not exercising with that individual during all portions of the workout.
  • Writing and/or designing a fitness or workout program for a participant.
  • Meeting with the same participant frequently or multiple participants on the same day.
  • Directing a participant around the room and telling them what to do next.
  • Receiving payment from another individual for an exercise session.

We embrace best practices by the American Red Cross and Y-USA. A key to safety around water is Test – Mark – Protect. This means we test abilities of pool users, identify their abilities to lifeguards, and provide floatation devices or limit access when needed.

  • Children under 18 years of age must take a swim test.
  • Children 6 or younger must be accompanied in the water at arm’s length by a supervising adult, regardless of swimming ability.
  • Supervising adults must be at least 18 years of age and may not be responsible for more than four children at a time requiring arm’s length supervision.


Swim Tests provide lifeguards with an awareness of your child’s swimming competency and confidence. Simple bands are worn around the wrist to let our staff know swimmers are deep water competent and confident. We have two swim bands (green & orange) that designate what areas of the pools your child can play in.

Green Band

To earn a green band, a child must complete the following tasks in sequence:

  • Report to lifeguard.
  • Enter from the shallow end & swim length of pool without stopping.
  • Climb out and jump in, return to surface.
  • Tread water effectively for 30 seconds to one minute, based on activity.

Orange Band

Children who do not pass the deep water swim test are given an orange band so that lifeguards and other AYCC staff can easily identify them. Children wearing an orange band must remain in designated areas of the pool.

  • Swimming allowed only when a Lifeguard is present.
  • Basic swim tests will be administered by Lifeguards on Duty to determine which part of the pool a child can use safely.

The AYCC is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members & guests. We expect all individuals to always conduct themselves in a respectful and appropriate manner.

If a member or guest exhibits behavior that is inappropriate or violates our policies, we will follow a progressive discipline process outlined below. The severity of the behavior and the number of times the behavior occurs will determine the level of discipline that will be administered. Our organization reserves the right to take disciplinary action, up to and including termination, at any time based on the severity of the behavior.


We hope that all who use our programs and facilities will behave respectfully and appropriately. However, if an individual violates our policies, we will take appropriate disciplinary steps to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants, staff, and volunteers.

Please note that the suspensions may vary depending on the severity of the offense and the circumstances surrounding it. Our organization reserves the right to adjust the length of the suspension or take more severe disciplinary action, up to and including termination, based on the severity of the behavior. Other factors that may influence disciplinary actions include age of offender/victim, previous disciplinary incidents, mental capacity of offender, and outside support/treatment.

Step 1: Verbal Warning – A verbal warning will be given to the individual, explaining the behavior that was inappropriate and reminding them of our policies. The warning will be documented in Daxko (member database).

Step 2: Written Warning – If the behavior continues, a written warning will be issued. The individual must sign the warning and a copy will be kept on file. The warning will be documented in Daxko.

Step 3: Suspension – If the behavior continues after a written warning, the individual may be suspended from our facility or programs for a designated period. The length of the suspension will depend on the severity of the behavior. The suspension will be documented in Daxko.

Step 4: Termination – If the behavior continues after a suspension or if the behavior is severe enough to warrant immediate termination, membership and/or access to our facility or programs will be terminated. This is a lifetime ban pending reinstatement process. The termination will be documented in Daxko.

Step 1: Written Appeal – The individual must submit a written appeal to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) within 7 business days of the suspension or termination. The appeal must state the reasons why the individual believes the decision was incorrect or unjust.

Step 2: Appeal Review – The COO will review the appeal with the AYCC Safety Committee at the next scheduled meeting.

Step 3: Reinstatement or Upholding of Decision – If the Safety Committee determines that the decision was incorrect or unjust, the individual will be reinstated with any necessary conditions. If the Safety Committee upholds the decision, the suspension or termination will remain in effect. The Safety Committee may also elect to conditionally reinstate access. If an individual feels that the appeals process was unfair or unjust, they may file a complaint with our Board of Directors.
