Pickleball is quickly becoming one of the most popular sports that the Massad Family YMCA offers! Due to its popularity, we are working hard to increase the number of outdoor pickleball courts to four, providing more access to members and offering a more memorable YMCA experience! Your donation today will help us reach our $40,000 goal to revitalize the pickleball courts at the Jon Fried Outdoor Tennis Complex.

A very special thank you to Greg & Dawn Murphy, Al & Kathleen Williams, Elizabeth & Barry Taylor, and Barney & Kim Reiley for your leadership gifts to help start this revitalization project!

Guests should be fever-free without the use of medications for at least 48 hours prior to attending the event.

Important Information for Childcare: I understand that childcare is only available for those attending the YMCA Luau.  I understand that my child will only be permitted to leave with the person that signed them in and any persons that appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be allowed to pick up my child.  The police may be called for safety.  State law mandates that the YMCA staff are mandated to report any suspected cases of child abuse or neglect to the appropriate authorities.  I also understand that children must be picked up no later than 10:15pm and a $25 late fee will be added for any pickups after 10:15.
